Digital Darkroom Apps:
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 for photo management and processing. I needed to adjust the Highlights and the Temp settings a little bit, I didn’t adjust the exposure and the brightness. For each of this photos, the Highlights runs between +25 to +55 and the Temp is between -5 to -10 to give it a cool feeling, you can play around and adjust it to +5 to +20 to give your photo a warm feeling. It depends on how you like it, there are times when the cool feeling is need and there are times when you need to warm things up a little bit.
