“The key is to keep company only with people who uplift you, whose presence calls forth your best.” – Epictetus
Today came almost completely off the rails. Didn’t quite get done all I wanted to do, and spent too much time on Muted Tones/Dark and Moody Lightroom tutorials only to discover that my LR settings were better than anything I was able to glean from YT.
Suspect that this means I’m becoming more comfortable with using Lightroom and can now process/edit my own photos without having to rely on other people’s presets.
Ok, I’ll take that as a step forward for the win. Maybe today wasn’t such a write off after all.
Jacobs & Co Steakhouse blends the timeless steakhouse experience with the sleek modernity of a new generation. The elegant piano bar is a nod to the past, while streamlined yet comfortable décor ensures the experience of every guest is warm and modern. Executive Chef Danny McCallum sources select cuts from the best ranches throughout North America, Australia and Japan, adapting the menu each evening to ensure each guest’s culinary experience reflects the standards that Jacobs is renowned for. A key feature of the dining room is the Dry Aging Room, where each cut is finished to its most perfect state. Guests delve into the fascinating world of steak, selecting their cut by region, age and ranch. Meals are complete with classic choices such as Caesar salads prepared tableside, a raw bar of oysters and chilled seafood, and unpretentious and knowledgeable hospitality. It is no wonder the restaurant is one of Zagat’s top rated in Toronto. Dining at Jacobs & Co never goes out of style.

Unfortunately, I had to rely on the cell phone photos because I wasn’t happy with the way the Nikon camera pictures turned out. The exposure and clarity was slightly off and I couldnt save them through LR, so I’ll chalk it up to lesson learned and apply it to the next time I shoot in a low light setting
