Post-Process Mod ... a slight enhancement turn

Photography, and more specifically post-processing, is a continuous self-examination and learning endeavor. Using that and peer feedback (both positive and negative), I reviewed my editing style, along with tools available in Lightroom and Luminar to see how my photos have changed/improved. Here are several areas where more attention is being applied in post-processing:
  1. color saturation (mostly orange) is being reduced when I perform HDR merge using easyHDR
  2. subject placement in the cross-areas in Rule-of-Thirds is being emphasized
  3. vertical and horizontal lines orientation are being corrected using Transform in Lr
  4. distractions (visual objects) in the image are being removed (Lr and Luminar)
  5. ghosting is being checked and corrected (option: use single image from a 3-bracket merge)
  6. image brightness confirmed outside of editing software and readjusted
