a game of tones

sooooo.... last month i was not happy with my rainbow effort... so this month i decided to try again and this time stick to the plan... for each image posted to my regular album in black and white, i would post the same image with tones added in LR...

for the first week i used the tones at 25% strength, 50% in the 2nd week, 75% in the 3rd and 100% in the last week...

LR tones were
red - 20
orange - 40
yellow - 65
green - 133
turquoise - 187
blue - 227
purple - 274

can't say i learned a whole lot out of the exercise... but there ya go... done... most of the images are currently posted as restricted as i didn't want to overload anyone's feed... i'll update them to public at some point...
much improved :) hope you are happy now

That looks great. I love how the saturation increases through the month. It adds another layer of interest to the calendar.

You found some really interesting things to photograph and I like the idea of gradually increasing the strength of the tones, it has worked well.
