    Really nice toning, Tom. Great image.

  • Thanks, Daniel… I haven’t done much with split toning before, but liked the way this worked.

    this is great – would love to know how you achieved this effect!

  • Thanks, Debbie. I first converted this to grayscale and then just applied the “split toning” option in Lightroom (called duotoning in PS??) to add a bit of one hue to the shadows and a bit of another to the highlights by adjusting the saturation. The two hues I chose were actually pretty close to each other. Feel free to BMail me if this doesn’t make sense.

    This is very Japanese/Oriental in sentiment, Tom! A humble ‘well done,’ mate!
