Not having had the time to get out and take photos, I decided to go back in time to Holidays of year's past. If I'm processing a client's photos I lay off the post-processing filters, and just touch up the photos to make the histogram a bit more appealing.
For my own personal photos though, I like to experiment - to see what kind of mood I can create just from some filters and image histogram tweaks.
I also wanted to get more familiar with the Lightroom plug-in that Koken has released. Thus far, it's been great, though it apparently doesn't work for LR 5.2. This isn't a problem, as I am still on LR4, though I was taking 5.2 for a test-drive.
