Those second edits are much better Peter, colours and contrast looks good. Getting quite bit of purple fringing in amongst the tree branches, which can be sorted out with the CA sliders in LR/ACR. Happens more often when you have high contrast areas and make heavy RAW adjustments.

What is the 18-200mm like? A friend was considering getting it a while back.

RAW editing is a huge learning curve but once you get there it is wonderful. Good stuff so far!

Thanks and I appreciate it, good catched on the tree branches and thanks for the tip. I noticed it only when you point it out. Regarding the lens 18-200mm I like it a lot and it is my walk around lens. I am glad my wife insisted of buying it she does'nt like the idea of changing lens everytime. I am so greatful to all of you for helping out and sharing your knowledge I am really a newbie and I am excited for my new found hobby.

I agree, Peter, much better. I generally do everything in LR3. For most of my pictures I move my clarity and vibrance sliders out to about 25. On the tone curve panel, I usually change the setting to "strong contrast" and if the picture can handle it without looking unnatural, I will exaggerate the "s" until it screams. Anytime you can reduce exposure without making your picture look too dark, that will give colors a natural looking saturation. I almost never touch the actual saturation slider, nor the brightness.
Of course I'm no expert, and other people know a lot more than I do, but those are some of the first steps of my work flow.

Great shots T2i4me.....I wished I have that lens too. Man I want Macro lens and Ultra wide lens and I should be all set for a while.

And I want the 70-200mm L and 430EX II flash, too bad we are not closer to gether as we could share and have it all!

Thanks Mook for sharing I really appreciate it. I will keep that in mind same thing here I never go past 25 in clarity and vibrance sliders. This is really good to know. Thank you.

:), I know we could have just lend to each other. 1 day when we go out of town I will rent the 10-22m there is a good rental place here in Seattle (Glazer's Camera) and give it a try.

The key Peter is when shooting wide is to get something of interest in the foregroud, otherwise it just looks like everything is far away. I spent one entire day in Yosemite using just the 10-22 and I got some great shots as well as some not so great, so I learned what seems to work with that lens. But I would not trade it for anything as it really performs well. I do read a lot about the faster Tokina you might try that if you can find one.

Oh, BTW, since you guys are talking about the canon 70-200L, with that one I don't add any contrast and usually no sharpening! It is already so sharp and contrasty, sooc, that it tends to look worse when you turn it up!

Oh to be a college student again, I'd trade all my camera gear to do that over. Enjoy what you have it only gets worse when you have a mortgage, family, 60+ hour a week job and bills up the keister.

See the discussion of the 70-200 F4L, that lens is amazing. It will be my first or second purchase for the T2i.
