I think it is pretty good. It sits well.

Thanks, I'll take that!

Working from the raw file always helps as one can possibly minimize things like 
the blob before the blob gets enhanced from the conversion. Taking care of it 
before boosting contrast, for instance.


I remember once I forgot to change ACR to output in 16 bit. 8 bit mode limits 
shadow recovery.

 It does other things, too. I can even change colors. Ages ago, I tried to understand it. On one file it would be trouble, but not on others. I gave up. Even if working on a JPEG from someone, I immediately change to 16 bit, before other processing.

One tool I have been testing lately, with careful adjustments, is the HDR 
Toning adjustment. I say careful as one can blow the photo out very easily. I'm 
curious if you have tried it in PS?

One area I use it is when the standard profile curves do not work so well. I 
then try a linear profile curve. The linear curve gives a flatter image, but 
one can then recover detail that might get blown out with a standard curve. You 
can find one athttps://goodlight.us/linear-profiles.html

on the TK Panels & Videos page, one can download TK Lum-Mask (generates 
luminosity masks - free). Dave Kelly uses it a low and I have become a fan. Using a 
mid-tones mask on an adjustment can help prevent blowing out highlights and shadows.

I don't know anything about any of that stuff. I rather imagine I do much the same things with Exposure, highlight, shadow, white and black points in LR, then Highlight/Shadow, Levels, Curves, LCE, bright/contrast, etc. in PS. Certainly I mess with the curve, often differently in different parts of the image, using masks, opacity, etc. As I know the tools I use, and get results I like, almost always, I'm not eager to learn other paths to the same end.

I've added to the Wet Eagle roll-over, to show the first two steps, LR adjustments and cleaning up the rain stuff.. <http://www.moosemystic.net/Gallery/Others/Usher/WetBaldie.htm>
