High West

Added on by John Sturr.

Here’s a photo of opportunity - sitting for dinner at a distillery in Park City, Utah - High West - some in this group may have even experienced their award winning Whiskey, but I digress.  This was a matter of great light, and shinny objects - and I can’t lie - I’m a sucker for those also.  This is basically out of camera - with sharpening but NEF. 

ViewNX - when I can get away with not having to lens correct is the editor of choice - the secret “color” sauce is very, very welcomed.  I wish LR 5 had the magic.  LR gives me about 90% of what Nikon’s software produces.  Too bad it is always the last 10% which determines the good stuff.

I’m always torn with the V1 system - as I wish the lenses were faster - as now I’m thinking of going B/W and pegging it a 1600 ASA, and just going to town and seeing what happens.  If anything it will provide a new perspective - and that is always welcome.
