Lightroom Colour Wheel.

Colour Wheel., originally uploaded by cubagallery.

Lightroom really managed to pull out the variety of colours and textures in this shot. I used the vibrancy and saturation tools, and added a bit of blue in two gradient filters. It look almost painted.

Monet's Lost Car. Found in Lightroom.

Lightroom popped the detail in this image. One technique that I have been experimenting with is reversing the clarity on a gradient filter. This is great for softening the focus on areas that you want to create a bit more depth of field. This in turn makes the detailed areas appear more clear.

Lightroom Colour Graduated Filters: Melbourne Graffiti Lane

With this image I have added a blue/green tint to a graduated filter coming down from the top. This effect gives a bit of colour to the white buildings and makes it feel more dramatic and colourful.

Lightroom Graduated Filters: Northhead Sky.

I have darken the sky with a Lightroom Filter, and then used the Clarity tool on the graduated filter to bring out detail in the cloud.

Lightroom and Photoshop Combo: Sugar Pop.

The combination of two stunning photographs in Photoshop has been finished in Lightroom to give a realistic and convincing look.

Lightroom Colour Temperature: Piha Beach.

Selective colour and cooling the down the colour temperature in Lightroom has created a great mood in this seascape image.

Lightroom Clarity: Water Based Lightsaber.

The clarity function in Lightroom has really comes into it's own with this shot. Every detail is there, the clarity tool has helped to pop out the detail. I suggest you check out the large version.
