This very useful technique will give your workflow greater depth. You will be able to make very specific changes based on colour alone, using a Black & White adjustment layer. Sound strange? Watch and find out:

Canon 16-35mm L IS Lens Captures Adams Falls, Ricketts Glen State Park
Being only a short walk from a small parking lot makes Adams Falls the easiest of the named Ricketts Glen State Park falls to access. Because this falls is not close to the other falls, special effort must be made to capture it on a day with multiple falls on the to-do list. On this rainy day, I spent some time at this falls before heading deep into the park on the falls trails.
 
The beauty of Adams Falls is very apparent on first arrival, but some composition challenge needs to be addressed before capturing your trophy shot here. A composition that works for me is to use an ultra-wide focal length positioned close to the foreground rocks. I oriented the camera so that the upper flow of water was contained within the frame and horizontally positioned approximately 1/3 of the way into the frame. At about 1/3 of the way from the bottom of the frame, the vertical water flow widens and transitions to a horizontal flow that leaves the right side of the frame narrowly visible. This composition leaves the water nearly completely framed within rock, though still consuming a large percentage of the frame.
 
A cloudy day combined with a circular polarizer filter (consider it a requirement for waterfall photography) meant that a long, water-motion-blurring 1.3 second shutter speed could be used at an ideal-for-depth-of-field (and sharpness) f/11 aperture.

DxO Logo
From DxO:
 
April 15, 2015 – DxO announces the immediate availability of DxO OpticsPro v10.4, DxO FilmPack v5.1.2, and DxO ViewPoint v2.5.4 for Mac and Windows. These upgrades allow the three DxO solutions to process images taken with the new Nikon D7200 and the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II. Among other new features, DxO OpticsPro v10.4 now offers a one-click reset function, and includes support for several DxO Optics Modules.
 
Improved workflow and new DxO Optics Modules
 
DxO OpticsPro 10 offers many automatic tools for processing RAW and JPEG images. Its library of presets allows photographers to automatically bring out the best in their photos as soon as they open them in the application, or to adapt the processing to their tastes by applying one of many available styles or by making manual adjustments to correction settings. To further improve workflow, the DxO OpticsPro v10.4 interface now offers a new “Reset” button that lets users cancel in just one click all of the manual corrections made to an image and to return to the default preset corrections.
 
DxO OpticsPro v10.4 also offers support for new camera/lens combinations: XXX additional Optics Modules are available, offering support for Konica Minolta, Nikon, Olympus, Sigma, Sony, Tamron, Tokina, and Zeiss lenses for many Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, and Sony cameras. Among these are the new Sigma 24mm F1.4 DG HSM A Canon-mount lens, the Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM wide-angle zoom, and the much-anticipated AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8E FL ED VR.
 
Availability
 
DxO OpticsPro v10.4, DxO FilmPack v5.1.2, and DxO ViewPoint v2.5.4 are immediately available at photo resellers.
 
Photographers who acquired a DxO OpticsPro 9 license on or after September 1, 2014, are entitled to a free upgrade to version 10. Photographers who bought a DxO FilmPack 4 license on or after September 1, 2014, are entitled to a free upgrade to version 5.
