Leighton - the Monticello pics have real feeling about them. The pano has had a lot of processing, no? lots of colour? I like it.

Thanks Ben. I edit all of my shots a lot, maybe too much sometimes!

Here's an example of what I mean, just taken with Nikki an hour ago. I really liked how the light was falling on the distant field but knew I'd have trouble with exposing it. So I shot it with the hopes of rescuing it in LR. The first one is how I shot it, the second after processing. I know it's a little overdone, but I like it, this is how I had it envisioned at the time.

Thanks for posting that Leighton - it's very interesting to see how other people work.

I can see why you cropped out the pile of rocks in the foreground. It all works for me - except the darkening of the mountains in the distance. The lightness, low contrast, and slightly blue tinge is how we gauge distance. I assume you darkened them to bring out the light on the field, but for me it distorts the perspective. I'd have done the opposite. Darkened the foreground hill, bought up the colours on it - that would have emphasised the lighter field in the distance - and then the mountains further off.

an outdoor bistro? in this weather? (or is it shot through glass).
With that lens on the table there'd have been little room left for your Pernod. (lol- that's so French - Pastis 51)

This was fire number 3, about a year later, this one did some damage, late in the evening, only orange light available. 105mm 2.5, slide scan with Nikon Scanner. About 2004. Life is like this, the fire of being alive eventually takes you out.

Thanks for the C&C Ben, I'll give your suggestion a try. That's one of the things I like about LR, it's non-destructive.

Ronny, how do you like using CEP? Do you have it as a plug in to LR? I know Monty raves about SEP which I've tried, I just haven't bought it yet.

Thanks, I think I'll download the trial version and take it out for a spin. Oh, and BTW, that's just your every day vulture flying around.
