Fantastic again. Any clues on the PP of the first two.

Thanks Daryl. The PP is pretty straightforward and I followed it for everything in this set. Here's an example.

I used a single exposure in RAW. Start in Lightroom, apply standard NR and adjust the highlights and shadows gives this....

Then used NIK HDR Effex and applied the 'Deep' pre-set. Fiddled around for a bit with the tone mapping and HDR effect settings, keeping the depth of the HDR effect at the more 'natural' end of the scale.

Finally back to Lightroom for final tweaks - a little crop, light adjustment, more NR and some sharpening. In the picture of the villa I also de-saturated a little

I enjoyed this style for this set of photos though obviously you would want to choose your subject. This was the first time I've played with HDR and it was fun.

Thanks Yaelle, I really appreciate your response. I thought I would be cheeky and ask as I am very much in the learning stage of PP and I was wondering about purchasing the Nik collection.
