I don't need it for everything and I'm still at heart someone who goes for a realistic presentation -- but it's fun and I'm between "assignments" right now so it's fun to go back and try to make silk purses out of some of those sow's ears in my catalog, lol.great detail and execution at low light with that small sensor john. just into a trial of the nik software myself and am amazed at how much it adds to LR--night and day.
You're very kind and thank you!That reminds me, I bought the Nik suite a while back when there was that deal through Serious Compacts, I'm still too scared to play with it. It took me long enough to dig into Lightroom before that.
But I've seen your other photos with the LX7, you definitely know what you're doing as a photographer.
Fair thoughts, ReD. Everyone has a vision and they don't always agree but certainly yours would look nice. I don't want too much detail in fact and the short poem I wrote for it pretty much says it: light is sucked away by this evil place and everything is a murky, dismal feeling space devoid of hope. You don't WANT to go down these stairs... you want to proceed no further...Not too fond of this one John - Doesn't lead you down the stairs ie give a proper sense of depth
Its always worth experimenting though & a lot of my shots I like were right offs originally
on this one I'd try to get the detail of the stairs & stonework & tint it just the other side of black & white
