I am using a Nikon D7000 and have found that using the "Daylight" preset produces a far too orange color cast. I have switched to using a custom temp of about 3300 that works rather well.

The Wavelet denoise GIMP Plugin might be interesting for you. See for example this video tutorial and Post processing on low light/fast shutter photo. I think RawTherapee also has wavelet tools (I'm no expert, though), see http://scribble-jpc.blogspot.se/2015/03/first-view-wavelet-tool.html and ...

Adding some info to Akram's answer. You could use try some of the filters from G'mic (a "plugin pack" for the Gimp which has a lot more filters than just noise removal ones). Here's its website and download page. For a tutorial: Noise reduction with G'Mic . An excerpt: Anisotropic Smoothing is the best solution for pure noise reduction, it can be found ...

Warning: long meandering, speculative "answer" (and it may not even directly translate to Lightroom). In addition to the already described good practices for portrait photos, there's another subtle aspect that pertains to situations "in the wild" where the white balance you want for the image as a whole doesn't produce very pleasing skintones. I find this a ...

The short version of the answer to your question is that you do it both "in camera" and in post-production. A longer answer breaks out into a few thoughts: In Camera Light the subject correctly. I really recommend using an incident light meter (a decent hand held one) to calculate the correct exposure for the subject rather than relying on the reflective ...

No panorama projection is usefull unless you need it. So my question is, What do you need the panorama for? I use some panoramas as: 1) Just interesting pictures. Spherical Planar (Spherical Probe) Cylindrical Little planet 2) Viewing an interior scene or landscape on a web aplication, or desktop aplication, virtual tours. Spherical Cubical. 6 ...

This look is a result of reducing the contrast of the blue channel, making the shadows bluer and the highlights less blue. You can do this with any curves or levels adjustment tool that lets you work on a single channel. Start by raising the low end until you get the amount of blue in the shadows that you want. Depending on how warm the lighting in the ...

My guess is that this shading is a result of adjusting the color temperature when processing RAW files. If you don't have RAW files to work with, but you have Photoshop or similar, you could create a layer and fill it with a shade of blue and then use the multiply blend mode while adjusting opacity for a similar effect.

one way to reduce the contrast of polarised areas in sky is to do as follows (applies equally to PS and GIMP): Using the freehand lasso tool, select the area(s) of highest contrast sky, including a reasonably wide margin. It is important that this margin extends somewhat into the non-polarised sky, and is of consistent width. Feather the selection by a ...

Although you can't capture the true beauty of sunset light you can do a somewhat realistic effect in Lightroom. You need to scroll down on the sidebar until you reach split-toning. In there you should see sliders. You then set the highlights to a gold-ish colour (you can tweak this) change the balance to something in the region of 60-100. and the shadows to ...

You can also use an median blending (create image stack and apply the "Median" stack mode) File > Scripts > Load Files into Stack Select all layers and use Edit > Auto Align to align them (if necessary) Layer > Smart Objects > Convert to Smart Object Layer > Smart Objects > Stack Mode and choose Median Discussion of this and other methods here: Does ...

When you stack images for the purpose of noise reduction, you shouldn't use blending. Use opacity to mix the layers to get the average: Layer 1 50% Layer 2 100% For more layers you use an opacity of 1/3, 1/4, 1/5 etc.: Layer 1 20% Layer 2 25% Layer 3 33% Layer 4 50% Layer 5 100%
