    This was pretty much a failed photo, but I think I managed to revive it with Lightroom. I adjusted the shadows, highlights, exposure, cropping, vignetting, and whatnot, and converted the picture to black & white to get this result. All information was already there in the RAW file - it just took some effort to retrieve it. :smile:

    The shadows, sunlight, reflections (and reflections of reflections) are all real - sometimes the light is just magical!

    I had something similar from this 2006 photo taken with a digital compact. I rescued a striking pic from mediocrity (IMHO) using Silver Efex Pro 2.
