Thank you, taemo!
Took this while still waiting for Canada Post to bring my new old 6x9 film camera here.
Looks like I'm not getting it today...

Thank you, Johnny5D.
I'm not PP expert at all. I use only LR. And I have no universal presets.
First, I'll adjust the exposure of the picture. I leave color temp as it was taken by 5Dc. Then I'll play with Split Toning in LR. I would just try different combinations and balance. Sometimes after split toning I adjust color temp. I also very often, if not always add vignetting.
I'm not trying to make my colors to look like someone else colors, I just do what I like.

For me in terms of colors, still, most important is the quality of the light and quality of glass.
I tried several, including non_L Canon primes. This is why I like L and Zeiss. The high quality of glass inside of them is the backbone for good picture in term of colors. PP or SOOC.

I finally got a chance to get out and spend a little time with my newly aquired 5dc last night, the weather here has been dismal, typical end of summer wet weather...

Nothing too special, I was mainly comparing my 500d with a Sigma 10-20mm f4-5.6 which is my favourite wide angle combo to the 5dc with the Canon 17-40mm f4L trying to ascertain the differences between the two combos...

A good photographer can take extraordinary photos anywhere, with any camera and any lens while a mediocre one will take mediocre ones everywhere, with every camera and every lens.
Never limit yourself with what others think you should do. Shoot what you find interesting, exactly the way you want to.

Thank you for sharing,.. can you explain how to know when light is good? And how do you look at light? And how do you metering the light?

Sorry, I can't give you a lot of info for PP. My concept is:
good light + high quality lens = good picture.

The light is good by default at golden hours. Not always, but often, then sun is not covered by clouds. It is really gold. The difference in quality is huge compare to day hours. Just wait for the sun to be very low above horizon or wake up early in the morning. Some days morning light is good up to 9AM. Even simple 50 1.8 will give nice results at golden hour.

Again, some with some exceptions. Like, where I'm, we have sunny days with very saturated blue sky sometimes. It will give good picture, if lens is not dull. This is why I use Zeiss and L. They don't need CPL filters to get saturated colors under bright sun.
Midday picture with cheapest L you could get 70_200F4.

Light could become unique after rain, or then sun starts to get through the fog.

But it could also bring the challenge for PP. Like this picture above, I have to do a lot of adjustments with brightness tools for different parts of the picture. I don't want to use the Photoshop, I use brush tool for exposure and contrast adjustments of separate parts of the picture in LR. For example, if I adjust sky to be contrast and dark it will make everything under very dark. I use brush to highlight parts I want to be visible. Not gradient filter tool, it is total crap in LR version I use.

For light metering I use average metering in camera. Not spot metering. I take test shot, bring it to 5Dc screen and look at it. No "shoot it to the right", no histogram checking. I'm just looking at the picture. I'm adjusting exposure compensation until it looks good to me. Most of the times with my 5Dc I have to bring it to the left to be well exposed. Very often it will give good pictures SOOC. Again if lens is not dull.

A little bit of a contradiction... Nice shots, by the way... :-)
