Hey Ryan can you give some more specifics like presets,etc.Looks pretty good for first try out.Some people like to go heavier on the sliders.I think you did good and it looks like you like the saturation slider.
I always say it's what you like that counts.Keep playing as it becomes addicting.Here's the syle I like to do.Good luck

I find that I change how I use Topaz Adjust based on each photo. Choose various presets and then play with a lot of the controls. Fine tune it to express what you are trying to convey!

Ryan,

It seems kind of plain and boring to me. Just brighter. Trying adding some "coolness" to it like Arnie does with his cars...

So what looks better? I still want the image to look real, not cartoony and over done.
