These are fantastic, I love #5, 10 & 11 most. If you wouldn't mind letting us in on the post processing, I just love the look you obtained in these.

Ron,

I'm with SHuRLa on these -- fantastic. Love the softness, yet vibrant colors at the same time. And yes, #5 does look like a painting. Did you use HDR on this one?

Thank you very much. I generally use a series of post processing tools in photoshop to varying degrees. I generally make some minor adjustments in Adobe RAW then open Photoshop and check levels. I use noise reduction then duplicate the layer and run lucisart at a custom setting and compare it to the original. Then create a layer mask and paint in or blend it to my liking. Sometimes I wait to adjust levels until this point. Rarely I'll run another layer with Topaz Simplify at a custom setting and blend it with the other layers with a mask. I may also alter the saturation and adjust curves at the end. Sometimes a use a glamour shot focus layer and blend.

I like the set quite a lot.

I do wish people (not just you LOL) would add what LB, optics, etc. they are shot with. Since I'm an old LB 2.0 user (until this afternoon when I'll get my new Composer and SWA converter), the new versions and optics and how people are using them interest me.

Thanks for adding you processing notes.

Thanks, this set was shot with the composer and double glass optic. I had some difficulty entering the info last time. Also, I use an Olympus 4/3 so the resulting focal length is 100mm.
