I did the following PP in Aperture.
- Added vignette
- Increased vibrancy to .35
- Added burn and polarize to the gravel / dirt to darken to provide foundation. The dirt / gravel road was sand in color.
That's it. The vignette added contrast and vibrancy increased the midtone colors in the sky. No increased saturation at all. The sharpness of the 135mm f/2 and resolution of the 5D MK II is just simply phenomenal. All the photos I take I simply add vignette for contrast and slightly adjust vibrancy for more pop. The camera & lens does all the work of capturing detail and sharpness.
Well, thanks for that workflow description!
I happen to have bought aperture, so that's a good thing (i just don't know how to use it yet, everything looks ugly and artificial to me so I don't really use it much to tweak the photos).
Don't know, perhaps it's the lens, the camera or the PP, but those colours I would love to see on my pictures.
So, what I'm going to try is buy the sigma 1.4 50 mm (as planned, I heard it has nice sharpness and good colours) and try to master aperture a bit. Thanks for your help!
