I like how your chosen adjustments change the sunflower image.
You commented on brushing on the adjustments because often AI has trouble with flowers. I’ve found that to be the case with the newest AI tools (flora detection) but the older AI masking tool with Keep/Drop has been doing a very good job for my images. The newer AI tool does select sky very well, so you could differentiate the flower and the lower portion.

You have done so much to promote a great product. I learn something or am reminded of something in every video you do. I’ve never been sorry I dropped lightroom.

Here is a lesson that comes at the right time since the garden is full of pretty flowers even if the spring is really not pleasant this year.
Thank you for these different examples really well explained in detail.
Thanks to this we feel less helpless to give a nice look to our photos.
Such a practical lesson is really nice and allows you to progress with ON1 instead of looking elsewhere for solutions that generally complicate life.
Definitely a complete program.
I hope that the next lessons will also be usable directly.
Thank you for all these lessons. Really helping. THANKS

My opinion too. These video and the adjust lighting one are excellent. I learn a lot in handling masks and layers. Finally so simple ! Thanks.

Good stuff as always but it may be worth mentioning that with a backlit object such as this flower, some gentle fill flash would have achieved much of which you have (albeit usefully for instructional purposes) shown.
Just a thought!
