I've been playing around with some of my Diwali photos and tried a bit of a different way to finish them in Lightroom.
Basically I've cropped in a lot closer and then used some gradient / radial filters to bring out the subjects. Have gone for a higher contrast than normal as well.
Also tried a few basic borders to see how they look. The simple white outlines seem to work well with these photos since they have a black background. Not fully convinced on the border I've used on the last one though.
Overall, I'm pretty happy with how the images have turned out and am very happy with my 70 - 200mm lens :-)
Always keen for others thoughts though.
