I used 2 PP programs on this shot - if you have a preference, would like your opinions

Fred, the first one is a far better start. The highlights are just a very small tad high, but that can be adjusted. The details in the shadows are quite a bit better in the first one, as well.

The second one just looks flat out under exposed.

The bottom looks quite under exposed. It is too blue to be a late day shot.

The top looks more natural.

Fred I like number 1. In number 1 I would have tweaked the contrast slightly. Number 2 has a dramatic sky but nothing else.

Pretty much what rmalarz said, though I do would like a bit more blue saturation in the sky of the first one but not to the point of looking under exposed like the second.

What was the second PP'd with? And did you use the same settings for both or were you trying for two very different treatments?

More detail and more pronounced colors in the Number one....I would go with that one.

The first one is much better.

I like the first one best but the best result is probably some between both.

I find I get a great start on postprocessing simply by hitting the Auto in Lightroom, then go from there.

Thanks for the suggestions, Bob.
this actually started out just playing with a new lens (Nikon 28-300)
then it (d)evolved into a tryout of Luminar (Door #2), and Photolemur (#1)
apparently Photolemur only does a quick & dirty one-step "enhancement"; any
further PP has to be done in another program. Still on that quest, hoping it
doesn't end at Mount Doom.

Thanks Joe
See my rather lengthy reply to Bob Malarz for the whole story (so far). Don't want to be redundant.

Luminar for the 2nd; probably need more practice.
Thanks

thanks - it is an improvement, but it (photolemur) appears to be a one trick pony

Thanks, Bwana (say hi to Ramar when you see him)
I think that's all photolemur is, "Auto", and then use another program

I do not know what kind of processing you did on either one, except for putting that ugly logo into the first. The second one is pretty underexposed and in need of some pp!
