    I am learning pp with Lightroom and need some coaching on whether I am on the right track or if I am pushing it to far. I know the half a leg on the right is out of place but I want to get the pp right first before I work on that.

    Thanks for looking

  2. I like the crop but the saturation is a little heavy handed. I think I see some color banding on the girls pink shirt.

    too oversaturated from my eyes

    I really like what Peano did! :) And agree the grass is far too yello and she is super bright skinned.

    Thank you everyone for your time. I guess I already knew the answer when I posted this. It is just way to easy to start yanking sliders around and before you know it you are off in the weeds. I will try to revisit this and post again, unfortunately I have to head back into work, so it is unlikely to happen tonight.

    thanks again

    Yes, I think so.
