    even though the contrast is harsh on the first one, I kinda like it over the second one. Works well IMO. :dunno:

    honestly... i dont know the details about PP and i tend to use the presets that LR comes with. (this will probably make 99% of you go :ugh: :uhh:)

    ill see what i can do, but #1 used the 'high contrast' preset and #2 used 'low contrast'

    set the picture to the high contrast, then adjust to what you like w/ the contrast slider. The preset is not the 'end all, be all' to the pic. Usually, thats just a start. :o

    I've only read like half of it, because I fear knowing the more complex shit right now. I fear it, because I'm afraid I'll end up spending like 10min/pic processing it. Right now I try to keep it under 30sec if I can.

    Lots of great tips in the book, like how to do shit better. For instance, did you know that the white balance is best set by using the dropper on a light gray area? Shit that like I didn't know.

    i dont even know where the hell else to change it other than on the rright side :rofl::rofl:

    im looking in to courses at a local cam shop around here. but to get into the LR one you need to have the first 3 courses done first.

    thanks for the book link though
