When I say processed for intensity in Lightroom, I mean that I have applied a combination of Recovery (to tame highlights), Fill Light (to fill shadows), Blackpoint adjustment (to intensify colors and increase apparent contrast), Clarity (to increase local contrast and emphasize detail), and adjusted Vibrance (which increases or decreases the saturation of primary colors in an image). For digiscoped shots I often decrease Vibrance. For landscapes I generally increase Vibrance. Finally I sharpen the image using the Sharpen narrow edges preset.

On rare occasions I will use the selective HSL tool to pick up a single tone/color (generally using luminance).
