Re: Nitty Gritty feel - did I succeed?

Thanks to all for looking and for your valued feedback.
My recipe (action) is as follows -

Develop RAW in ACR or LR4 using default settings.

Tonemap using Photomatix using Soft3 preset with 50% Saturation setting.

PS CS6 Blur gallery set to pause, so that I can adjust to each compositions outside edges - to taste.

PS CS6 lens correction to add vignetting back into photo edges - to taste.

Alien Skin Exposure 4 set to Miscellanious Effects - High Key Glow and Sepia Tone, set at 75% strength to let some original color bleed through.

Then I darken to taste in Curves.

Don't forget to have fun.
