And More ...
... Glad you like it.
What did CS6 bring to it ?
Well, this was shot in Raw and I am finding that the new Raw engine in CS6 is better than that in CS5. Mind you, I didn't think that at first as many of the controls have been changed. Bit of a learning curve but well worth it.
Apart from the conversion adjustment in CS6, I also played quite a bit with getting it as 'contrasty' as possible without destroying shadows/highlights.

Might I ask what CS6 brought to this image?
Adobe has released process engine 2012. This is a major step forward over process engine 2010, which was an enormous improvement over process engine 2003.
There are also numerous other changes in CS6 that are useful. For example, a better "content-aware fill" algorithm.
I adopted Lightroom 4 this year as my main organizer and that has made a lot of difference to me. It shares process engine 2012, which can be used alone for more than 98% of images in my experience so far. It is very powerful.
I will be using it with CS5 (it can launch images into CS5 directly from Lightroom with Lightroom performing the ACR conversion) after my CS6 beta expires. If I find that I miss the extra features inside CS6, I will upgrade. I just want to want until the sales start at BHPhoto lol ... I have benefitted greatly from leaping at their 24 hour sales (I got LR4 for a total of $69.)
Very nice image.
... Thank you.
It looks like a positive film capture measured for the bright sun.
If I could always get a 'transparency' type look to my images I would be happy. Often difficult to do with digital images without destroying shadows/highlights.
My favourite film was Ektachrome E100G and sometimes E100VS. Sadly, not available here now.
