Okay…you have to see this to believe it. I went to Joe McNally’s blog today and his assistant, Drew wrote an awesome post about work flow. Buried within all the goodies was the mention of Nik Software plugins. They are pretty pricey for photoshop, but there is an Aperture/Lightroom option that seems economic (in comparison). So I downloaded the 15 day free trial.
HOLY CRAP these are awesome.

And look at this post process
SEE….HOLY CRAP! Natural yet punched up. This weekend I am shooting with these plugins in mind and really test drive them hard. So far very impressive.
Hey, Joe and Drew know plugins! Thanks guys.
