Tonal Adjustment

Today I'm sharing some pictures taken this week with the Leica D-Lux 4, post processed in Adobe Lightroom 3.0. Then I adjusted the tonal values using the tonal contrast adjustment tool in Color Efex Pro. Using this filter tool allows you to fine tune Highlight Contrast, Midtone Contrast and Shadow Contrast along with saturation.
Tonal contrast used to smooth the sky and highlight the dark shadows.

Even in black and white tonal contrast brings out the subject of the picture.
