    testing out a LR filter i made
    any feed back on it?

    warmed the highlights, cooled the shadows, brightened the whites and shadows, darkened the blacks, a touch of clarity
    trying to get something i can like with just a click, instead of feeling the desperate urge to play with sliders for 30 mins on every photo i take! lol

    actually, its 4 versions of the same filter. with varying levels of vignetting, and shadow brightening in case the orig photo is dark or bright

    In general I like them. There's a couple that seem almost like a cross-process and seem a bit over-the-top (not that there's anything inherently wrong with that :wink:). The ones that seem a bit more dialed back still have a bit of a "film" look to them (sorry I'm not clever enough about the various emulsions [and that may not even be the right term here] to tell you which one they look like) and I think they fit the photos well.

    you should be able to figure it out...
    It reacts differently to different light. There are a couple of shots in there where the blues look a bit like Ektachrome slide film but another couple that look like anything but. And where the colors are muted, they're REALLY muted. Is that third shot actually a color image? It looks like there's a hint of color in a few places, but it could almost be a monochrome image with a touch of sepia...

    That one was a b&w shot that I then applied the filter to

    I had to make four versions of it because dark shots would be TOO dark, and light shots ended up feeling TOO light. I think it's a magic filter. I just can't decide if it's using it's powers for good or evil, yet...

    Luke! Ektachrome... Remember that ! ;D we'll sound smart, yet!!!

    My Ektachrome arrived from Adorama today. We'll see what it looks like soon enough.
