Week 3 of ABFriday: 1 video and 3 photo galleries from 3 photographers.
Would love to have you participate! Guidelines are on my After-Before Friday Forum page.
Last week, Ben of Flights.Camera.Satisfaction submitted a pair of photos to ABFriday, while back on his blog, he posted a video showing his post-processing steps. I enjoyed the video so much that I thought I’d “borrow” that idea, instead of writing out my process. Hope you enjoy!
I’ve also included the after and before images.
NOTE: If the slideshows don’t load in your Reader, please visit the original post.

Robin says: This image was taken a few minutes before 9:00 PM on the rooftop terrace of the Printemps Department Store in Paris. First steps were in Adobe Camera Raw. I changed the color temperature to a cooler tone (4850 K). The Highlights were dropped (-100) and the shadows opened up (+43). Clarity (+26) and Vibrance (+30) were both increased. In Photoshop CC, the top was cropped, and two Curves Adjustment layers were used to: 1) lighten the glass roof of the Grand Palais and 2) darken the entire upper 2/3 (sky and tower). [Note: Robin has not written a detailed post this week.]
