Nice edits Joergeske! But if you can post actual details of your edits please as that's the aim of the thread, otherwise it would just be another photo sharing thread.

We're all here to learn so if you could strip apart one of yours into similar details as mine above we'd all be able to learn something new hopefully.

Great stuff! Not only the recoveries themselves, but the results are stunning!

Yes, I would also like to know what the settings were for those...they came out great :D

GregSteer, I just wanted to say that was an excellent, informative post -- a great example of what this thread is "all about"!!! Thanks!

Not nearly as sophisticated as what Joergeske has shown us (although we're still waiting for the details ;) ), but here's one of mine anyway. Went into a nearby park yesterday to test my new 70-200 lens and didn't expect any keepers, but having watched some Lightroom videos today I thought I'd play around a little. Below is what I came up with.

Most of this was pretty straightforward. A little cropping, and the following adjustments:

  • Exposure: +7
  • Black Clipping: +3
  • Contrast: +5
  • Vibrance: +32 (to get the grass greener)
  • Post-Crop Vignette: -28

To get the water bluer, I used a color adjustment brush with a blue tint. Took a bit of time to get the mask right.

This picture is one of many pictures I'm not sure I really like. I'm hesitant to put it in my gallery, so I'd like to know what you guys think about it. :)

I'd say you did a good job with the water!

As to the bird, it's hard to say from such a small viewing size -- could you post the Before/After shots at the full POTN viewing size (1024 pixels at the longest)? Bird shots often get their "pop" that comes with the crispness/detail that comes out when viewed/printed at a good size.

Sorry for the late reply, had to come home from work first. Here they are. Thanks a lot for taking the time. :)

Ah, the bird comes out nicely!

It looks like you could boost the shadows a bit, at least that's my "style".

Thanks. :)

By boosting the shadows, do you mean lightening them up, or darkening them even further?

I mean lightening them so some detail comes out in the shadows!

In Lightroom 4 it can be done by just pulling the Shadows slider to the right until you get a pleasing "effect".

Ah. I'm still using Lightroom 3, where the shadows slider isn't there yet, so I was a little confused.

Thank you very much for the advice. :)

Ah, in LR three you use the Fill Light slider (or the Shadows slider in the Tone Curve panel)!

I've been following this thread for a while and it is always a great source of inspiration. We recently put a new deck on the house and here is a raw conversion I did of the new yard.
