GutairDTO, I'm a fan of everything you make. Period. I wish I know how to use spit tones like that, but my stuff just looks stupid when I try!

Appreciate the kind words! It takes a bit of practice but getting the split tone and/or cinematic look isn't as difficult as it first seems. Most of my shots are PP'd fairly similar. I use Aperture, but I believe Lightroom can do this stuff exactly the same. I always start with curves adjustment, and almost always have an S curve for both the red and green channel. The Red is typically a generous S, whereas I am more careful with the green depending on shot. For the above shot, I barely dropped green in the shadows, but raised it a decent amount in the highlights. I almost always raise the blue channel in shadows and lower in highlights, typically just a straight line.

Then after the Curves adjustments are in place, I adjust contrast, then use the "Tint" color wheel to take the photo from the "Cross process" look to slightly split toned. For the above shot, I actually placed the shadows wheel in the "green-yellow" color area, then put the mid and highlights in the yellow as well. THat combination along with the curves adjustment gave the picture a "Blue-green/Yellow" split tone look.

Hope that helps!

Wow, thanks for the explaination GuitarDTO! I have tried working iwth the individual color curves in the past but have not had that much success. I'll git your "recipe" a whirl and see where it takes me. Keep up the great shots!

Thanks, there was a beautiful sunset being filtered through some fall colored trees directly behind her. This lens seems to really shine in these situations.

Very nice!

Yes, He's right. It's absolutely new sigma. I've just tested my sigma . The results exceed my expectations. This lens is not good it's great it's stunningly I haven't even got no words
to say how it's impressive.
It's the one of a few things that really worth to buy. Obviously I was right to choose the New Sigma.
