Lightroom editing (looking for advices)

6 years 8 months ago - 6 years 7 months ago #468399 by nicolasnico
Hi,
Regarding the editing of my pictures, I'd be interested to have some suggestions, advices  on some of my pictures (in attachments). Anything you would yourself do differently if you were to edit my pictures in Lightroom. Things on my pictures you would consider as "mistakes", "possible improvements" etc.  Thanks! :-)
(I use Lightroom 5).

On my monitor the whites could be quite a bit whiter.  Lifting the whites would also help the contrast.

I would increase the exposure so as to show more details....

The only thing I would do is run a high pass filter over them and that's it.  These are awesome shots.  Where were they taken?

Thanks for your feedback, Chris! I appreciate! I live now in Kyrgyzstan, Central Asia. All the shots are from there. Kyrgyzstan is just so amazingly beautiful - a gold-mine for photography. Come by one day! :-)

Hey, Scott, thank you for your feedback! (I like the forum option of photographytalk).
Question: if I increase the exposure, then the pics become brighter and I loose some of the colors? (that's the reason why I nearly systematically underexposed (AV). Any further advise? (if you've got time)

If you are shooting RAW then there is no need to underexpose for color depth.  That trick is really just for JPG shots.

You could lift the exposure a little and try the de haze slider, sometimes it gets amazing results even without any haze visible.

Here is a sample with +70 de haze and +1.2 exposure. It gives it a different look entirely.
