Then grow to love with a little bit of LR work.

Actually, I think all three are pretty neat shots! The 1st captures the imagination and I'm sure there is a cool story associated with the capture. :D

The 3rd shot has a great feel to it as well. :)

The first image has an almost film noir look about it.

Thanks guys! My topic post was about the first image.

I was at work, grabbed my camera and kinda just snapped the picture. That has been cropped quite a bit.

The white balance was off and I put it to the side when editing. Then I went back to it and played with it and started to like it. Turning it to B&W and cropping made me love it.

The other two are some of my favorites!

Hopefully you are shooting RAW. :)

I tend to leave my camera in AWB (auto white balance), as I can adjust during PP if needed. About the only time I set WB is for night-sky shooting.

Well done for a quick shot. :)

I think the first shot is really cool!

Thank you guys!

Honestly I can't remember if I was in RAW or not.. I believe I was just given how much I cropped it down. It's probably a 60% crop or so.

Some of my favorites were those that I passed over the first time through for processing. 1 & 3 are my favorites of this set.
