    Hello Rico,

    I'm new to Lightroom, and i would be very grateful if you could explain the actual process you went through in Lightroom to create the amazing shadow recovery on the pic over on fujirumors. :bowdown:

    I simply brightened the exposure and pulled back highlights and lifted some shadows. Takes maybe a minute. It's a standard film simulation (Astia and PNH), so nothing fancy.

    Here are the simple adjustments from the original ISO 100 version to the final version. In this case, I used Pro Neg. Hi.
