I remembered taking these last fall, and it took a while to locate them. I hope they were worth the effort. The first one I darkened, saturated and contrasted with a touch of tone mapping.
The next one just didn't seem like it was in focus quite, but it was such a nice shot I used a painterly effect on it and I think I saved it from the cutting room floor. I also upped the contrast, the saturation, and did some tone mapping.
I spent the day with the daughter and did a little house work...all in all, it's been another good day!
