Mk II files stand up well to PP

I thought I'd post this. An interesting example of what can be done in PP. I'm very impressed with the ability to push/pull the Mk II files - a definite step up on the Mk I:



Kenilworth Castle at Dusk by Paul Kaye, on Flickr

I could have pushed the brightness a lot more, but I wanted to keep the dusk feel. In brief, this is what I did (all in LR):

- Removed the dust bunny using the clone tool. It isn't sensor dust in fact, but muck on the gel filter at the back of the 7-14. An example of why, despite its efficiency in removing the purple blob problem, it's still not an entirely satisfactory solution.
- Moved the bird (it was too high)
- Pushed shadows to +100 and added +0.8 of EV to the exposure
- Highlights -100
- Blacks -83
- Clarity +22
- NR +15
E-M1ii, Pen-F and too many lenses

Re: Mk II files stand up well to PP

Steve Gosling mentioned as much, and also that he'd had good results from long exposures up to 90s. He hadn't yet tried longer.

Too much Oly gear.
