    I guess for this one, I don't quite like that there is no clarity in this one. It definitely makes the person look really plastic, but yet at the same time she isn't, which is just weirding me out.

    Mike ~ This one made me laugh... Puppet Masters and all. When I invested in LR, it came with presets and then I found more I downloaded on Matt Kloskowski's site. This preset is called Sepia Chic. When I tried it out the first time I was jacked. I applied it to everything for about a month or two and then hit the wall... for the very reasons you state. In the beginning, with zippo skills, I was relying on someone else's definition of cool to process my stuff. I finally figured out that there was no point to having this technology if I didn't invest something more than money. Scooch over... I need a seat on the weirded out bench.

    i think this image is suffering from bg problems it's crying out for a deep black along with a deeper darker side of the face which might add a little more detail to the highlighted

    kil roy ~ Mike explained why this is just a hot mess. Out damned version. I have the original and am going back to it using his recommendations and yours to see what comes of it. Thank you both for these combined photo improving steps. Lesson learned: If I'm after high contrast, cowboy up then deep six the use of presets.

    Photoshop (post editing) can be your friend, it can also be your enemy :-)
