Playing to the Tulips


1 - A couple of left-over photos from the Tulip Sunday thing a while back. This post-processing method has me a little conflicted - I wouldn't exactly describe it as subtle or elegant, and it yields a kind of look that would be very easy to grow sick of. There's nothing particularly special about the RAW conversion to get this effect (pseudo HDR) - just max out recovery, fill light, blacks, contrast, clarity, and vibrance in ACR (and add an 'S' to the tone curve) and then expose and saturate to taste... I'll label this one with 'use sparingly' I think...


2 - the Bass String (I'm sure it has a better name)
