Beautiful day today, so I went for walk in a nearby park. The results are below. Some at pretty high ISO's (1250) and everything was hand-held, so I put sharpening and noise reduction to work in many cases. While these are all pretty natural looking, I am always surprised/pleased at how much better they look than the original captures.
As a color image, this shot just didn't have any "oomph". But once converted to black and white, and after using the targeted color adjustment tool, I was able to make the tones stand out and separate from each other. In the color image, the greens, browns and yellows all blended together.
I used two identically sized and positioned radial filters in this image to both accentuate the spill of light and de-emphasize the area outside of the light spill.
