A working photographer based in Atlanta, Georgia.

This first composite is made from 4 screen shots. I am soft proofing to sRGB working space. The caption in each is self-explanatory.

This next composite demonstrates the difference between exporting as a JPEG using the sRGB workign space without taking care of the out of gamut areas and how using various strengths and radii of Saturation Adjustment brushes on the out of gamut areas.

    Very subtle difference. I’m sure the change may have been important to you, but not sure the casual viewer would notice.

      Perhaps the casual viewer would not notice the difference, or if they did notice, care. I have no control over how they are viewing the photo, on what display or device, whether or not their display is calibrated and profiled or how well that has been done, or the viewing conditions. But as they are my photos, it is my responsibility to care. This photograph is not a great photo, and I haven’t taken the iamgethroug hthe entire process I use to take a raw image to being a finished photograph. I chose it to illustrate what this new tool in Lightroom 4 can do for those who also invest a lot of effort into making their photographs.

      I appreciate your comments and you taking the time to make them.
