Luka - excellent! Don't forget, there's a whole other area of Lausanne up the side of the hill.
Yeah, the old town on the hill is nice. On a really ridiculously scale when you consider the town has no more than 130,000 inhabitants. I didn't take many photos there though as I had to be social... I do however remember your excellent Lausanne series of photos...

My one tip is to not let your wife go shopping whilst in Lausanne!
Well, too late for that I'm afraid
Luka, not sure you are available answer question this time
anyway, here are few question about your process.
Do you still work on LAB mode in PS in above? Or just work in LR? Are you still using multi-step sharpening output? Is there a recipe or image by image tweaking?
Michael, I'm still using the same old scripts in PS. On occasion I do some manual sharpening (with the regular sharpening tool using my mouse). There are typically three scenarios where I might use manual sharpening: when I want to bring out textures, edges or clouds.
If we take a photo like this:
I've done the following:
(LR) White balance adjustment
(LR) Basic settings (contrast/exposure/nd filter)
(PS) Removed dust spots (my sensor was dirty)
(PS) Used a resize script to get it to the target size:
(PS) Used the sharpening tool (~20% strength) on the clouds
(PS) Added a frame and saved for web
As for LAB mode, I use it on occasion to increase color separation or to increase contrast without affecting saturation/vibrance. In the swan picture I used LAB mode to increase contrast on the L channel only. When I did it in RGB the colors were too intense.
