I did not realize that since I noticed that some others have also just posted images. I can post the settings but that may not be very useful to most folks here since I have been using DXO PhotoLab Elite for the last year rather than LR or PS.

You can do something like in the linked image (https://photos.smugmug​.com …aaa/O/0007_Scre​enshot.jpg (external link)) from several versions of DxO ago, because with DxO, unlike Lightroom, you can actually arrange your panels and palettes the way you would like them to be arranged!

Yes Thanks, I am aware of that I have configured my copy to the way I work and use very few of the standard palettes. I also have reduced the redundancy caused by the availability of the same tool in multiple palettes. I have no problem posting screen shots of the settings for those images. That wasn't the issue. But some of the tools are different in PhotoLab than in LR or PS and even the tool's purpose and range of adjustment for similarly named tools may differ. As a result, the adjustments may have far less meaning to those unfamiliar with PhotoLab but I will add them to my images in the next few days I hope.

The point of this thread is not to promote any one tool, but to be shown what can be done w/ the tool of your choice and what you did to achieve your end result.

I understand and have added screenshots of my adjustments to my post on the page before this.

Hi all, first attempt at this thread so will see how it goes!

Firstly, global adjustments are below. Finding the right colour balance took me ages! Think I've found a good balance tweaking temp, tint, saturation, orange, and adding a little saturation in the shadows.

So after global adjustments were done, in LR I also applied two graduated filters, and three brushes, all trying to balance exposure.

I used flash bouncing off the wall to the left knowing i could correct in post. So the two graduated filters are mostly compensating for that, and the three brushes are mostly adjusting groups of faces to correct exposure.

Taken on my Dads 80D, the files held up very well with quite a few adjustments.

I'm back right as you look at the photo with the remote in my hand!!

Here are a couple of before and afters processed in DXO Photolab Elite. I've added the corrections as requested. Note the second image has far more contrast and sharpening than I would normally add, in part as compensation of the limits of the Tamron 18-400 lens and in part because of the effect I was looking for in this seaside image. I would normally assume the haloing on the edge of the rock in the area when it meets the Bay of Fundy would be a direct result of over sharpening. However, while it did accentuate it, it did not cause it. When I look at the original unprocessed image at higher magnification I can plainly see the haloing although it is much fainter.
