I absolutely love Aperture. I don’t, however, do many dramatic things with it. The tools I use most often, to the least:
- Exposure adjustment (I usually underexpose on purpose)
- Spot/Patch (I have some dirty lenses)
- Monochrome conversion
- Cropping & Straightening
Here’s an example shot (click on each to blow them up, click again to shrink). Before is on the left, after is right.
As I said, not very dramatic. About 80% of my best shots get adjusted a little tiny bit.
