I was trying to work on that Last year’s leaves picture in the lightroom 3 quite a while, but I am just not able to get better results I did in pwp (Picture Window Pro). I do not blame lightroom for it, but my lack of experience with LR3 I do. Somehow I was hoping LR3 has pressure sensitivity when making masks. To me it feels it doesn’t have :-( Please, please prove me wrong.
On the other hand I have more than seven years experience with pwp. I know how to use tool properly, at least in the parts I do use. Here is the example of the black and white photograph from the yesterday, The Road 2011.
First is the image I made today with pwp and the second is image from yesterday.
