... wondering if I am the only one not liking all those choices you get in the develop module Lightroom CC now - I use Classic, and tend to just use embedded and tweak for my monitor/eyes, I'm very very lazy when it comes to processing.
I'm with you I guess. I tend not to get into a lot of the preset choices - except when I convert to B&W. With B&W I find it useful to use a preset as a starting point and make changes from there to taste. With colour, I may do an "Auto" adjustment of light but I often find that does off from where I want. So I land up adjusting exposure and contrast again as well as shadows and highlights. I usually prefer to keep it reasonably natural with just enough adjustments to make dark shadows more visible and very over-exposed areas less bright. Trying at the same time not to make things look to artificial or flat.
There have been occasions when I do want a particular effect and then I may do something more but generally I prefer the above.
A very nice picture, by the way.
