From Animal Kingdom. The reduced size doesn't do this picture justice at all (which I attribute to this great lens).

Cool ducks.

When there is nothing else around the duck will always oblige.

Love the ducks Immaculens.

Agree with you, when there is nothing else around, a wooden post will do.

Now that Lightroom 4 is here I'm revisiting photos and reprocessing them. As are many people, I suspect...

here's one from 1 yr ago - crop then uncropped

I do like what they have done to the clarity slider... I hardly use 'Contrast' because it darkens shadows too much. Clarity is like a "Premium Contrast Sharpener"...
anyways, just playing around

Be careful with the Clarity slider (have not tried LR4) it has a tendency to create a haloing effect around high contrast object.

The Adobe engineers took care of the halo effect with the 'New' Clarity slider.

If you get halos now - its from different circumstances like a major crop on a blue sky where you used the sharpening 'Radius' slider too aggressively. The Radius slider effects/determines the thickness of halo in those special circumstances.

the Ps CS6 'beta' public was released just yesterday for download - which includes the new ACR7 and thus new 'clarity' slider. Also - Lynda.com has a free 2.5 hr's worth of video tutorials on CS6's new features...

I managed to get out for a few shots on our local river today, then had a quick play with a different LR4 processing I had been told about. This involves pushing the new Clarity slider across to 100% then playing with the Contrast slider + other small mods to get the best result.

For the right pictures it can be pretty amazing, almost like a well controlled and subtle HDR effect

See what you think of these two shots (wide open at 300mm as is becoming usual)
