PWL to the next level

  1. I see many use the PWL action and The Illustrated Look but thought this might add something new to your mix. It is a quick way to separate colors or luminosities. It will give you a studio lighting effect or tone under/overexposed areas. The example could be much more dramatic.

    i.e., used it on this to separate dark side of trees from lighter side plus other areas.

    The Illustrated Look can give many different looks depending on your settings.

  12. Absolutely amazing...

    I love the illustrated look... I am hoping that by using your actions, I can perfect it. In fact, there is someone in my office that would love a photo retouched with that type of look!
