Orford, Suffolk, UK
I took, shall we say, a troubled photo. Underexposed, grainy, full of chroma noise. Yet I kind of liked it and always wished I had done a better job of it.
In the intervening years since the original JPEG capture (D'Oh!) #Photoshop , #Lightroom and various plugins have added marvelous capacity for rescuing what would otherwise be binned photos. I don't know about you, but I depend on that added capacity quite a bit.
This picture was run through Lightroom 5, then passed over to Photoshop CC as a smart object before applying #TopazDenoise , #TopazDetail5 and #TopazSimplify , in that order.

"They're just some linemen for the city."
No cherry picker lift for these Shanghai utility workers. I wasn't sure if it was actually electrical wires, or if it might be telephone cables that they were working on, but their working conditions looked a bit precarious.
I grabbed this shot from a moving bus, so there was some motion blur as well as haze from the window. I applied some Topaz Simplify 4 custom settings to give it a semi-illustrative look.
