nice "blues", but a question though: Was this the way the scenery looked or is the WB shifted a little bit towards blue?
No changes to WB. One of the things I've always been very fond of in Olympus is the quality of their auto WB . . . so I always shoot auto WB and "natural" in the camera menu, and almost never mess with WB in post processing.
And no polarizing filter, either. Which means balancing clarity, sharpening, contrast and shadow lifting in LR to bring out the light the way I saw it. For landscape images with the E-30, I find that upping vibrance and saturation just a tad, say from +5 to +9 gives the image a little bit more resonance. I left vibrance alone in these, and I think I put saturation at +5 or 6.
It was a fine, very clear and (for Ireland) bitterly cold day - arctic air mass - so the light was pretty amazing.
