The top image is always straight out of camera. One thing I always do is up the black point to 10 to give the digital file some pop. Digital files are rather flat. I also have a personal taste of adding a vignette to images. It is just what I like.

    Here's some of my favorite before/afters.

    1. Phoebe Before&After

    2. Jade Before&After

    3. A total oops. I went from shooting the well lit bride and groom to her as she was playing in the aisle. Gotta love RAW.
    Jaylen Before&After

    4. The fabric she's on is actually a brown/green. It photographed gray and I didn't like it so it had to go.
    Molly Before&After

    5. Just a screen shot of the RAW and the edit, but you get the idea.
    Reagan Before&After

    6. Took more love than I like to give to a photo, but worth it in the end. I know the fabric needs more help, I promise I fixed it in the absolute final

    7. Luke Before&After

    Wow, some great examples of post processing power!

    I.K...amazing how changing the angle on number two made a totally different image.

    I hope I am not violating any rules of the forum in using an image available on the net (a wallpaper jpeg) since I am still saving for my own DSLR camera.

    Image of Megan Fox with some pp using adobe photoshop and NikSoftwares' ColorEfex Pro plugin. :D

    This is one of my favorites

    SOOC RAW no processing
    1062460195_3Kuoa-L.jpg

    Lens correction in Lightroom to correct perspective + a preset called "Dingy" that I got somewhere + film frame like vignette + Color Effects Pro Tonal Contrast + a bunch of manual tweaking :)

    Very quick post processing on this photo. This was done last night as my entry into Nikolai's weekly assignment #149, 12 in 1. http://dgrin.com/showthread.php?t=180866

    Much harder then it sounded

    I figured I'd throw in a glimpse on how I go about post processing. thumb.gif

    1. Straight out of Camera (except for sharpening)

    i-VRBD58n-L.jpg

    2. First round of editing in ACR.
    i-BvLzqPb-L.jpg

    3. Final edit. Color toned / Minimal Dodge + Burning in PS

    Edit: I just realized I revived a 3 year old thread..oops!
