Subject: [Leica] IMG: re-worked cliffs near Poole

After I posted my PAWs from last week, one of my images (the one that  
most of us, including myself, thought to be the best of the set) was  
given the rare honour of being "moosterized" by Moose, a member of the  
Olympus list who has a penchant for suggesting improvements to others'  
pictures by posting a "before and after" version on his web site. This  
is the original image, as I posted it:

Moose, as he often does, suggested punching up the contrast and  
saturation significantly. Here is his "before and after" version:

I tend to have a preference for muted colours and lower contrast, but  
in this case I have to agree that his version represents an  
improvement, and so this morning I went back to the original image and  
played with adjustments in Lightroom until I got to something that  
went some of the way, but not all the way, in the direction suggested  
by Moose. The result is here:

It is a nice example of how feedback on these lists can happen across  
many time zones and great distances. A nice illustration of the  
positive impact of the internet and digital photography.
