It's been awhile since I kicked in the Pixel Shift. I remember now why, it's a lot of extra work. ACR will process to a point but doesn't handle the motion correction at all, plus the raw files are huge, 150mb plus. They have to be opened in Pentax Camera Utility 5, then saved as a tiff. At that point LR does a fair job with the processing. If you're willing to take the time, they produce some vibrant images. Enjoy

#2 That's snow on the far peak and in the background. I'd hiked up to an observation point, this was just below the snow layer that day.

#3 View of Gatlinburg from the bypass overlook.

A gorgeous set! #1 and #5 really bring out the Autumn colors, and #2 is a very nice composition, with the dead trees framing the evergreens and the fall colors in the backdrop, with the clouds on the mountain.
@Jeff15 Thank you!

@jeffashman Glad you liked. The vibrancy, detail, and micro contrast that Pixel Shift brings to the image is great. The only problem is the raw files are big....150-200mb and Adobe ACR doesn't handle the motion correction embedded in the file, so you first have to process them in Pentax Utility 5, then save as a tiff, before Adobe will play nice with the file. The images produced remind me somewhat of the old Viewmaster with it's stereoscopic images I had as a kid.

@jcdeboever Thank you sir!
