Some images are spectacular right out of the camera.
Some images need just a bit of refining in post processing to really shine...
And then there are the images that look rather mundane as shot... but with some heavy handed post processing in the computer, can be made into hidden gems.

I thought I'd share a few before-and-after examples of the latter category. Images that to me were "meh" out of the camera, bound for the cutting room floor... but with 5-10 minutes experimentation in post processing, became finished pieces I'm proud of.

A few of these pics I took nearly 10 years ago, but am just now revisiting them with a fresh eye. Maybe it will inspire you to reconsider a few of your own images in a new light.

*processed entirely in Lightroom, although the same could be achieved with photoshop.

Nice processing Francis! Although, it would look really cool with an image of Godzilla poised just behind Big Ben and the House of Commons towers

Imagination...
