Experiments in Editing

I’ve been experimenting a bit with post today. I played with different Lightroom presets, did some more HDR, and merging obscene amounts of photos for panoramas. What I did for each shot is in its caption. Some of these are more extreme than others, so let me know how I did in the comments below.

Vignette Magnolia

DSC_0168Spring means lots of flower pictures. Are you guys sick of these yet? My latest contribution to this field of fluff art is a shot of magnolias during sunset, and balanced out with an off-camera flash. Then, I threw a vignette on it in PS and bumped up the saturation a bit.
