thank you :D I did use highlights all the way to the left pretty much on other photos like where she was facing the sun, but I didn't think to do it with these....

I'll try it when I get a chance...by lowering highlights to the left, will that negatively affect the subject? That would have been great to have a bluer sky here, but I don't too much mind the blown out sky.

The one thing I didn't screenshot was the sharpness/noise reduction..........It'​d be nice to see what that should look like... as of right now I try to not sharpen too much as to get noise, but also not reduce noise too much as to make the image too soft/blended together. Not sure what the Details slider does for *both*, there are like 6 or 7 sliders total for the sharpness/noise reduction section...

I'm not sure how much benefit the Highlight control will do for this shot, it would mainly "affect" the sky if there is any detail left, it's hard to say. Do it and leave the Exposure at zero and see how it looks. Then you can use the Shadows slider and so how it works with the subject and foreground!

Should have spot metered that shot and exposed +1 for the face....

I really like the final edit though and the sky is fine the way it is.... only option would be to maybe take some sky from a different pic and merge it

I don't mind the edit. In fact, I really do like what you did with it. But I don't think the photo itself is very flattering. It's an awkward pose, hit or miss framing, and her face is pretty soft.

hmm, I wonder if that's b/c I converted that to a jpeg using MS Paint (usually where I paste my screenshots) and then upload to photobucket which also compresses it. Here is the file from Flickr. The black and white version below-I'm pretty sure I simply pressed Black & White..no other adjusting.

More of the finished product is here, where I ask for more C&C :) as I have time I'll post a couple more of the before pics. https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1227129 I think a mistake I made is that all the pictures in the set don't look the same in style.

Also a bit of painting to add some yellow/gold tones here and there. Also increase exposure brush in top left corner.

what?! unbelievable...!! I'm gonna have to study how you did this :D


at first glance, what is it that you did that made such a huge difference in color here? The Camera Calibration "green" part? Thanks..

Split Toning, I reckon....

the big things that changed the colour are the two brushes I did both a orange/yellow colour and in the top left a light source added by increasing exposure by about 2stops. split toning helped cool the greens by adding blue to shadows. The camera calibration I've never used before but really intensified the greens and cooled down the image even more. Also the saturation slider reads =2 but i did one more step after the screenshot and I think it was +10.

The thing I've learned from Lightroom4 is that no one setting will give you your final image. It's lots of small tweaks to slowly "massage" the image into a final product.

Here are two edits I did. Can anybody point me out on how I can copy and paste my Lightroom adjustment screen shots?

just take screenshots of your lightroom changes, then upload them onto your flickr/smugmug etc. account and pop them on here
