Just thought I'd share an image from a few years ago that has found its home on my wall as a canvas print. For interest sake, I've included the before and after. [Aside: As this is more of learning forum than it is a gallery of finished works, I wish more posters would include original raw/jpeg files so we can learn from their vision and techniques.]
Using LR3 and PS, I had previously tried to re-create what I envisioned for this photo, but it never quite came up "right". So I tried with LR4 and am quite pleased with the result. I was able to get the deep tones well separated from the highlights without the "edge" that would periodically appear with PV2010.
The original was shot with an Olympus E-1 (5mp) and the ZD 14-54mm zoom so I am limited to 2560 pixels on the long side (x 1008 pixels). I had Gregg Parsons in Guelph print it for me as a 46x18" canvas and, surprisingly, it up-resed quite well. It certainly made me question, but only for a moment, my purchase of a D800e last year
Canvas is much more forgiving of up-resed files!
