    Well, it's a darned fine photo! I'm living proof that anyone can take a picture. Exposure, however, takes real talent and I' believe you're up to the task.

    It's an awesome pic. Wouldn't you say though that Digital Darkroom / Lightroom6 are still "effects" by just another name?

    I'd say the difference is knowing what you're doing and why vs. clicking "Awesomize"...

    Thank you!
    A distinction should be made though maybe flimsy in a way. If you are saying that anything done to a raw image out of the camera, manipulating the picture in any way is an "effect," then there is an "effect." However, that is a debatable way to use that word in photography. Changing spot exposures, increasing saturations, cropping, changing color balance, tone curves, all of those things, and more, affect the picture. But, as
    , "effects" are often store bought, ie you buy a software package, load up a picture, and click on the button that says, "awesomeize" and voila!
    Lightroom has some "preset" effects, but in these shots none of those were used. Lightroom is a digital darkroom, more than a turnkey push button operation.
    BTW, if you think the pics were the result of pushing a button, then that is compliment indeed, an achievement of sorts; those presets are done to very high standards and for one to make it into commercial software is not easy.
    But glad you liked the shot. All were processed differently.
