A bit overdone on the exposure and brightness i think. I might be wrong 'cause I'm looking at an uncalibrated monitor at work, but I don't think so. Measuring the bride's forehead and shoulder I'm getting 249/226/217. 220/190/170 would have made me happier.

And I've got to say it - I hate slanted shots, unless it's a news event grab-shot it is a terrible cliché.

Going for the high key look - always a winner with weddings. I'm really pushing it @ 249 though!

And to each his own on the slanted shots. Cliché or not, the clients loved it. :)

Mike, did you use adjustment brushes in the trees? That is at least what it looks like.

yea it was basically a combination of the graduated filter and the adjustment brushes.
I hit the highlights of the tress with the exposure brush at +0.27

Thanks Mike, that was going to be my next question. It really made the colors pop.

Morning, Vancouver Arm, Fiordland.

Alterations in ACR only except for a slight tweak with levels in Photosop where I reduced it for the web.

In ACR I gave a touch of exposure, pulled back the highlights, boosted the shadows, pulled in a little black to keep the contrast correct, then just touched the left side with a large soft exposure brush. Also warmed the colour balance a touch.

The adjustments are mostly minor...the aim being to restore the image I saw rather than to add anything that wasn't there originally.

Hey Jo, I've just been looking at your two river shots from a couple of pages back. They are a great illustration of what can be done with a difficult lighting condition, and a perfect example of how it pays to under expose to protect the sky detail, specially in the first shot.

As someone who began with b&w film, I remember the old cliches like "expose for the shadows, develop for the highlights". Now it is pretty much the other way around, and the modern sensor gathers such a huge amount of detail in shadows where at the same exposure b&w film would have been virtually clear.

Nice job!

Cool, Ricardo!

If you look back at the early parts of this thread, there is a bit of discussion on taking and posting screen shots, but you made a good "beginning"!

I haven't posted here in a couple eons, but I got the itch today, so....

My partner's granddaughter is called Swan. We don't see her much - they are in NY and we are in Israel, but whenever I bump into a swan I grab it and put it on the web page I set up for her, "Swan's Page", http://imageevent.com/​elied/swanspage (external link)
Last week I was in Amsterdam for a couple hours between flights and I met a lovely young thing who manages to survive in dirty oily water and spends her Saturday afternoons watching the tourists.

I have to admit that since LR5 came out I have become a Radial Filter maniac. I love it! There are four here, as you can see by the pins, with the lower right corner opened out.
