here is a quick test using Velvia plug-in for photoshop which I have purchased. I have found that it lifts the colours on dull & overcast days and late evening.

here is the before........ this was shot late evening

here is the after

...... the colour, contrast and dynamic range can be very well controlled, but to show the difference I have gone a little brighter with the colours to show the control. For me some where in-between

Hi there Big Pix, not wanting to sound synical but is not the first shot the natural colour of the bird, if so does that not represent its true colour. even though the colours are lifted and show the bird in a better light on the second photo. I personally would go for the first shot.

I do understand there is more to digital photgraphy than what meets the eye, and I for one have a lot to learn.

That is my personal opinion.

You are a great photographer Big Pix and I for one enjoy looking at your photographs.

Geoff

A subtle but pleasant overall effect. How does it differ from adjusting the contrast, saturation etc. manually?

it is easier, by the way of all the controls are on one page, ajustable by sliders and levels 1-4 and before and after preview........ to give the look of Velvia film, takes seconds
