i decided to have a little bit of fun with this edit. i wanted it to have an early evening glow about it, as if the picture was taken right before sunset. so, this is what i did:
*all adjustments made in lightroom
1-i cropped the photo to bring the focus to the antique wheel frame, and straightened the photo as well.
2-with the adjustment brush, i increased the clarity of the foreground only to bring out the details of the barbed wire and wheel frame.
3. in the HSL box, i increased the saturation of the blue and aqua to 100% and the green to 55%.
4. in the split toning box, i manually set all highlights to pink (360) and increased the saturation to 42.
5. in the split toning box, i manually set all shadows to orange (26) and increased the saturation to 33.
6. i then removed noise and sharpened for the web.
thanks again, Kaylene, for taking the time to sort and critique all of these!
