I tend to be pretty "minimalist" in my processing, but for the above photo I decided to use the Lightroom "Camera Landscape" profile to see if it helped, what do you think?:

QUOTED IMAGE

I like it. Almost like it has a HDR feel to it.

Well, thanks Jaymz! You know, the day's lighting was not much help, so I guess anything we can do!

I note that you have great colors with your shots! I have my hands full just messing a bit with the 769 pics from the day, but at some point I may revisit a few:)!

I tend to pick out a dozen or so that I really like, process those then randomly go back through them and process others. I took 490 shots after deleting garabge, I tend to get overly critical of myself and end up not ever posting them.

This is one I tried to push a subtle HDR look on.

Hey Jaymz, nice job of bringing out the dramatic sky!

Heh, I don't know how many of you all have seen the "Urban Fragments" thread, but it's a great inspiration when it comes to Street photography!:

https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=737713

So yesterday I was keeping my eye out for "fragments" that I could shoot:

Interesting, I've never really thought of shooting 'fragments'. I am going to walk around Pendleton and see what I come up with.

Yeah, Jaymz, it can be really "eye-opening"! And if you spend some time in that thread, wow, there are some really great shots in there!

One more take on that "Fountain" photo -- I'm not much on doing B&W conversions, but it seemed like maybe that scene could benefit from some "gritty flavor" -- what do y'all think?:

I flipped thru the 350+ that I took while out, found a handful that I liked and made the wife go "wow" now I just need to take some time to fiddle with them. Maybe by tomorrow, tonight I am working on a Shutterfly book that she got free when buying her wedding dress. Giving it a shot on vacation photos and the deadline is tomorrow :(

I like the camera landscape one best, for sure. Which one do you normally use? I like camera landscape with the vibrance turned up a bit and the saturation turned down to negative 5 or so, sometimes. Or camera faithful with them both up a little.

Hey, thanks for the feedback!

I had done a fair amount of tweaking to get the first one and then just changed it over to Camera Landscape. It had everything from upping the contrast a bit, lowering highlights, raising shadows and some Vibrance, then I just changed to the Lanscape profile and exported it out, so that's the only diff between the first one and the second one!
