So I’m partway through my Scott Kelby LR3 book. Let me just say that he is amazing (but I’m sure you already knew that.)
Okay, so the 2nd edit may be a little overdone, but it’s obvious to see the difference just a few little tweaks can make. It honestly took less than a minute to quick switch things.
What changed between the photos:
- instead of using the “Adobe Standard” camera setting that is LR’s default I changed it to “Camera Vivid”
- I actually went negative with the Brightness going from 20 to -20
- I upped the Blacks from what I thought was a high number at 20 to 40
- I tweaked the Exposure to compensate for the new changes
