In this tutorial I walk you through my entire process to develop this image. You’ll learn how to:

  • Make adjustments in Camera Raw (or Lightroom)
  • Paint in selective adjustments to remove shadows
  • Remove distracting elements with the Clone Stamp and Healing Brush tools
  • Improve accuracy with the Quick Selection tool

This is a complete workflow I used to create this image (which made the Upcoming list at 500px).

Disclaimer: This is just one way to use Photoshop.
