    Am I editing the right way?

    This is a matter of taste. I think you are going in the right direction but imo they are cropped a little too tight. If you feel you have to crop tightly it is in order to crop out distractions in the background. If there aren't any distraction then a looser crop would imo be better?

    PS Luminosity Masks and Lightroom?

    This book is titled the Digital zone system but in reality it is about Luminousity masks. It MIGHT answer your queries? http://www.amazon.co.uk/Digital-Zone-System-Control-Capture/dp/1937538133/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1390298559&sr=1-1&keywords=the+digital+zone+system

    Surface Pro and LR5

    That is a recurring problem that is usually solved by unplugging and plugging in again or a reboot.

    How to use created camera profiles with lightroom

    BTW I am not trying to be argumentative only trying to understand this issue with the POSSIBLE view to buying one. Quote Linwood In my case, I also prefer that the two cameras produce images that look similar; I shoot with two bodies in many sports, for somewhat consecutive shots (e.g. far...

    How to use created camera profiles with lightroom

    Quote Linwood My apologies, Bob, I don't quite understand your question. Unquote. You posted two versions of the same image with different profiles attached. What I am asking is was it only two different profiles attached or was there further processing done to the images? Quote The overall...

    How to use created camera profiles with lightroom

    Have the images been enhanced or have they just had the profile applied? The problem I see is what is the point of applying an "accurate" profile and then enhancing it by possibly changing hue, contrast and saturation? The checker costs money and the free adobe profile is a good starting point...

    Syncing in LR5

    I have been learning how to sync the spot removal. Part of the syncing is to bring up a preset. Is it possible to save the preset so that when I open an other image with the dust spots then it is automatically applied? TIA

    Lr5.3rc1 Spot(clone-heal)repaired

    There is something I don't understand about this feature possibly because I haven't used it yet! My concern is that it "maps" out the different spots on a sensor and you can then apply them to other images? So far so good but when you clone/heal a spot LR chooses another area in the image that...

    Auto Tone question

    You can lower the "boost" that adobe has added which means you are starting from a more neutral setting. I forget what the "boost" is but a Google search will find information about the difference. A lot of photographers don't like the "flat" look a Raw looks like compared with the Jpeg so in...

    Auto Tone question

    If you haven't lowered LR'S default setting for the sliders then you are starting off with a raising of the tone curve and auto tone is adding to it. In reality you are auto toning it twice. Try setting the sliders to there lowest - you can't zero them in process 2012 but in process 2010 - and...
