Not sure but LR4 may not support the relatively new 70D. That's my guess anyway.

Makes sense. Shame I wont be able to participate! bah.

I think that you can convert to a .dng file and use LR4.

Yes, that's the fix. Adobe provides a free utility that converts CR2 files to DNG's.

Here's the link to download the Windows version:

and here's the link for the Macintosh version:

Replacing my Canon 7D, Tokina 12-24mm, Canon 17-55mm, Sigma 30mm f/1.4, 85mm f/1.4, and 150-500mm with a Panasonic Lumix FZ1000. I still have the 17-55 and the 30 available for sale.

Here's my take. Loaded into CS6 and merged layers.Opened Topaz adjust and selected Autumn from Vibrant range. Made slight adjustments to jighlight and shadow settings and flattened image back in CS6. Made a selection of the yellow around the sun and the rayes below the sun and put on own layer then cloned a more even texture to try and eliminate the hard transition. New layer then used elliptical marquee tool tool with shift held to convert into a circle, refine edge with large feather and created a softened circle for a new sun. filled with red. Created new layer filled 50% grey in overlay mode then made selection using select/colour range, to select the darkest trees and painted in black to darken down. Something else which I forget, then smart sharpen.

Just a reminder, according to the OP you may submit only one entry each week. @Benitoite, suggest you choose the version you like best and remove the others.

In the old rules we could post more than one, but the first one was considered for competition.

I would personally prefer just one per person. Things will be much simpler that way.

I did. This one remaining is the one I intended to enter. It's a bit grungy and halo-y, but had a brighter tone to the vegetation.

I used images one and three and played around with blending until I was happy. Imported to LR, levels, bit of clarity painting and that's about it. I think.

Processed the raw files with Darktable using custom base curve profile. Used Gimp to blend the three exposures using the blend tool. Copied to new layer set to overlay blend mode and cropped.

HDR in lightroom, -100 highlights, +41 shadows, -55 whites, -29 blacks, +1.2 EV, Temp 5150, tint +11, +57 clarity, +24 vibrance, +2 satruation.

Made some color level adjsutments on luminance and saturation. Decrease luminance of blues, and yellows mostly, and bumped the saturation of the blues.

Applied lens profile , CA adjustment. Added some post crop vignette. Grad filter to reduce highlights and blacks in the sky a little more, and +34 on clarity. Then used the brush to do a little more dodging and burning in the sky and foreground.

I may have overdone it a little bit, but this is what I have :)
