This is pretty much my workflow in LR. We all were trying to help out another member several pages back in this thread, and a bunch of us tried processing his raw file.

Bianchi,
In terms of the marshland final results that we all liked so much, it took way less processing than I thought it would have taken. Great 'simplicity' in your 'mimd' s-eye' to get there.
Summarizing as I see your edits:
I think the major first step was to Get high contrast edginess and then adjust colors to liking. Out of all the baby steps, I think the magic came from the shadows increase, blacks decrease, heavy sharpening, heavy clarity, and vibrance.

A long way off but I like the light

Lester,
I think your post is a Great example of the variation in pop and micrp-contradt that occurs that is directly related to the quantity of available light (EC value) and not just ISO. Notice the diminished appeal of the first shot vs the rest where the first photo had 5 stops or more less light. Just a fact of life of digital sensors. (less dynamic range and color resolution at lower light levels.)

Over in the focus thread it would probably be a good example to keep in mind when they do analysis.

Guy

This is some of the best I've been able to muster with fishing Eagles so far. They can be so far out that cropping heavy degrades the images. This one was pretty close, but as usual, bad light. Oh well. I can't seem to get both on the same day. Haha!

AL,
I like your image but I think you made a decent compromise given the back lighting of the sky as you didn't have too much shadow and keep some of the sky color. Total like (exposure level) didn't seem too bade. Maybe bump exposure a small amount and then lower the whites back down if you think it wasn't bright enough?

Again, I liked it and appreciated the exposure tradeoff.

Actually that was shot as a jpeg early on when the camera first came out, as Adobe hadn't a profile for the 7DII in LR yet to process raw. I still did my workflow for it as if it was raw in LR. The 7DII does a very good job redering jpegs I keep my picture style set to standard for jpegs

I always open my shadows and turn down the highlights, then I hold the alt key to adjust white (move whites to the right, and the blacks to the left.) However I like to visually watch what the black slider does, so there are times I wont hold the alt key when I set my black point.

Those steps alone will get you in the right direction for better contrast. From there it's tweaking those sliders to get what the image requires.

Such a good deal Peter!
First try with mine today with the ibis shots. Looking forward to some eagle shots from you, especially since there are none here in So Cal...
