I love how Topaz Simplify can reduce the complexity of a scene. And reducing chaos is what it is all about. In this image, for example, Simplify has allowed these faces of stone to stand out more than otherwise. And the color you added only enhances their presence. Very nice work, Jeff.

I agree with Ron- the rocks are beautifully separated by color with the shapes outlined for clarity. This makes a complex picture work quite well, with pleasing tones and shapes. Nice work!

A bold and colourful treatment which suits this hard rock terrain very well, Jeff!
