I was going back through some of the photos I've done and came upon this one:


Is the post processing too much? I think I got a little to friendly with the negative clarity in Lightroom. I'd like to hear your thoughts about it.

I am fine with the look of your photo. Your post-processing seems to have given it an interesting look, perhaps bringing up some copper-like colors to the room, but it is a challenge to know what you did without seeing the raw image to compare.

Nope, looks fine for the most part.

Thanks for the opinions you two. I appreciate them. When I have more time I'll upload the original so you can compare them Bruce.

Thanks again!

Negative clarity does not bug me here. But your highlights are blown out so I suggest you try to recover them a bit.

I love the dream feel to this, but I would of tried to clean up the hair a little...

However I do agree a little with Ashurachan, but it's not enough to bother me personally.

The best effects are the subtle ones. It's not distracting so I think it looks good.

Sometimes, the best effects are the obvious ones. Jurassic Park's dinosaurs!
