Every once in a while I like to play around with post-processing my photos.  Occasionally, I find something a bit out of the ordinary that I really like.  This was one of those times.

To get here, I used Adobe Lightroom and did the following:

  1. Dragged the exposure slider as far to the right as possible before blowing out the highlights and dragged the black slider as far as possible without loosing too much detail.
  2. Applied some highlight recovery to give it a bit more of an edge
  3. Increased the contrast slider
  4. Dragged the Clarity slider all the way to the right

What are some of your favorite ways to “play” with the post processing?
