Good job Ted. Boosted the photo just enough without making it look over-processed.

Thanks, guys, but what matters is what Dan thinks.

FWIW, here's what I did in ACR:

Recovery: 57
Blacks: 8
Contrast: Medium
Brightness: 19
Clarity: 42
Vibrance: 57

Dan, please realize that this is not intended to be a criticism of your skill as a photographer. What I often see here are photos that simply need a little darkroom work to change from a good one to an excellent one. This was simply expected in the film days. I chose your photo as an example because it's a really good photo.

Adobe software can get pretty expensive. But 75% of what I did to your photo can be done (it only takes a couple of minutes) with the Contrast and Saturation sliders in Olympus Studio, which is now free. They stopped selling it and now just provide the key if you ask for it.

Or send me a PM.

PS: You can also get Adobe Camera Raw fairly inexpensively by purchasing Photoshop Elements. In PSE the ACR is limitied to RAW files only, and only the basic sliders plus sharpening, but that's all you really need. You would need to shoot RAW + JPEG though.
