Was going to tack this on to the original "Lightshow" post but decided to go with new instead. Been using the CC photography package for a little over a year now. Prefer the pay for it once and use it forever plan rather than the by the month or by the year plan, but $10.00\month or $120.00\year for full version Ps and Lr Classic, I decided ok. With regards to Lr Classic, I have (for the most part) been using its cataloging capabilities rather than its editing capabilities. Your reply to the original "Lightshow" post, referencing camera raw and reading the article got me thinking that maybe it's high time I started learning about them. Got a book from a local B&N, flipped trough it, decided to try a B&W conversion. First image is the same one I posted in the original post. Second is the Lr version. Not perfect, but definitely improved.
