Nice effect with Pic 2 & 3. Care to share your PP method?

I find getting great images out of cheap equipment to be some of the most fun I have in photography. Very nice job on these.

i overuse the "black" and "fill light" sliders, i start off by raising both to 100 and then backing off until i get the effects just right

this inadvertedly increases the strength of all the colours, particulary red and blue, at which point i de-saturate by 20-30 points and viola.

#3 is a great capture, with well-fitting PP. Well Done
