There are a lot of discussions on photo forum on making images "POP". I thought I would share one that I stumbled upon quite by accident. Here is the "un-popped' image: Subscribe to see EXIF info for this image (if available) And here is the same image with one additional NX step to add the 'pop': View attachment 227222 And here is a screenshot from NX showing the key step expanded: View attachment 227223 I used "Saturation/Warmth" but actually you can use ANY adjustment. The important part is to use the Blend Mode of "Overlay". Opacity of 20 gives a mild pop. Setting it too high will cause the image to look unnatural. I have a setting file that adds the 'Unsharp Mask', 'Saturation/Warmth', and 'High Pass'. I use it as the basis of my final adjustments on most images. Easy to tweak them as needed.
