As I said in my previous post, I would try to enhance the photos I didn't like at first to make them seem better. In color, this photo just didn't strike me. But after doing some post editing, I really liked it.

I converted it to Grayscale, upped the Blacks and Fill Light and gave it a Vignette inside of Lightroom 2. I also did some Sharpening trying to up the "graininess" of the photo. I could have brought it into Photoshop to do that, but decided not to. I hope you like it.

FYI, the LR3 beta has a develop panel for adding grain.

I was reading about LR3 the other day and some of the new features it will have. Very cool stuff.

I was thinking about downloading LR3 beta but it said at the download page that it "does not read, upgrade or import catalogs from previous versions of Lightroom" and they recommended using the previous versions for workflows. I figured I'd get it when it was officially released.
