Red-eared Slider - Suborder Cryptodira : Family Emydidae : Trachemys scripta elegans
The photo was taken at North Pond in Lincoln Park, Chicago, Illinois.
I used a Panasonic DMC-FZ50 camera with an Olympus TCON-17 tele-extender. Editing was done with Luminar Flex. I used the Develop filter to increase the contrast, shadows and clarity and decrease the highlights, whites and blacks.Next I used the Tone filter to lower the SmartTone and add the Accent AI, Details enhancer and Denoise filters. Lastly I erased a distraction in the upper left corner.
