Playing Around with Perfect Photo Suite 6 and Lightroom

Image
Original, as shot, in JPG format.
Processed with Perfect Photo Suite 6, using masks and layers to darken sky and apply "cracked paint" effect to wall. (The school doesn't really look like that!)
Same as above, just "auto-toned" in Lightroom.
Converted to "B&W High Contrast" in Lightroom.
"Selenium-toned" in Lightroom.
I can't make up my mind about which I like the best. It's either the high contrast B&W version, or the one that's selenium-toned. 
Do you have a favourite?

Portable Antivirus Software for your USB Drive

This might be useful in Computer Tech classes:

http://www.microsoft.com/security/scanner/en-in/default.aspx
The Microsoft Safety Scanner is a free downloadable security tool that provides on-demand scanning and helps remove viruses, spyware, and other malicious software. It works with your existing antivirus software.
Note: The Microsoft Safety Scanner expires 10 days after being downloaded. To rerun a scan with the latest anti-malware definitions, download and run the Microsoft Safety Scanner again.
The Microsoft Safety Scanner is not a replacement for using an antivirus software program that provides ongoing protection.
