This one began and ended in LR4 Beta (see yesterday's). The LR4 Beta Develop module is amazing!!
So far this is my favorite. I love the texture in the sky.

A truly impressive transformation - it has me wondering what an 18th century artist would think of what came out of your D700 as raw . .

excellent work 5***
16 Jan 2012 5:55am
Brilliant work, Jack, I could see people really wanting to buy superb photographs
like this, there is so much atmosphere and mood, so thick, like the fog in the
distance. 5*****'s !~

Excellent work! I'm also a big fan of the LR4 beta. Could be a really good version. Would love to hear more about your workflow in developing this! Great photo!
16 Jan 2012 11:22am
@P Hansson: Workflow - right now, I bring it into LR4 as a dng. Then I make some changes using the Basic panel. Next it goes to PSCS5.1 and I do any Spot Healing and Content Aware Fill that is necessary. I have a few Nik filters in ColorEfex4 that I use. I also sometimes use Nik's Dfine and Viveza2. Then it goes back to LR4 as a tiff. On occasion, I do some final touches with the Adjustment Brush.
Strong composition but it's your processing that makes the stunning image. LR4 looks truly impressive.

16 Jan 2012 1:16pm
Another wonderful pastoral scene and the texture adds so much to the feel of the scene. 5*'s for me.
16 Jan 2012 2:41pm
Perfectly executed image, Jack. The detail and texture are a perfect compliment.
16 Jan 2012 3:06pm
The processing is amazing, but the stong composition underlying it is what really makes this shot.
16 Jan 2012 3:40pm
It reminds me of Dutch paintings. Wonderful texture like linen! Best regards, y muchos besos amigo Jack! Una obra de arte! Adela

A tremendous tremendous photograph John. One of my recent favorites! Just fantastic tones, composition and mood. Exquisite stuff. Cheers!
17 Jan 2012 2:17am
Thanks for your interesting and detailed answer. I haven't used Color Efex Pro due to a "personal constraint" that I won't use tools like that, but your pictures certainly makes me rethink that decision. You really have a personal style and even though you're using quite a lot of effects I think your images are truly great! Looking forward to follow this blog! Keep up the great work!
17 Jan 2012 7:39am
Such a lovely scene! And the processing is fantastic!
17 Jan 2012 1:36pm
what a lovely capture !! I love it :)
I wish I could know how you edited this image ....
17 Jan 2012 5:27pm
@Goddess ☼ Ƹl¡: I made some minor adjustments in LR4. Then I sent it to PS where I applied some Nik filters from Color Efex4. Then I blended it with a Flypaper Texture (I have a sophisticated Script for this blending).
Another stunner! Excellent choice of post processing
17 Jan 2012 7:24pm
Beautiful and creative - Congrats on the spotlight! I just downloaded the beta but haven't had time to get in to it yet - can't wait!
17 Jan 2012 11:04pm

27 Jan 2012 12:45am
wow...is lightroom 4 responsible for this poetic image?
27 Jan 2012 5:08am
@Susan: Thank you. It certainly helped. With LR3, I used it primarily for organizing and printing. With LR4, it has done much of my processing. Of course, it did not blend in the texture.
well deserved spotlight..it looks like a painting.love the processing.
