This one I took when we were hiking through Wells Gray Park. There were a lot of beautiful waterfalls along the way, one of them is Bailey's Chute, this path was leading up to that fall.

Bailey's Chute is one of the wildest rapids on the Clearwater River. During high water in early June, the roar of the chute can be heard a kilometre away.
The Clearwater River is a tributary of the North Thompson River, joining it at the community of Clearwater, British Columbia. The Clearwater runs from Azure Lake through Clearwater Lake through Wells Gray Provincial Park.

I cropped out the bright sky so now full attention goes to the river. I also cropped some off the left side so that the trees in the foreground would be a stronger element. Using the midtone and brightness sliders I increased the mid and darker values. I think it makes the rapids seem wilder. I added a faint blue filter and adjusted the greens(actually the yellows) in Hue and Saturation. I also rotated the image slightly to the left.
