How this
image was

Adobe Lightroom CC

Stick Figure - Heartland


Basic Panel, Effects, Radial Adjustment, Brush Adjustment, Gradient Brush

Editing this image involved a good few local adjustments as I really wanted to bring the most of out it. The goal here was definitely on the warm skin tones while also keeping the dress close to white without looking out of place. I added the Protea (Golden) preset, adjusted the HSL to bring a bit more reds back, and tweaked the usual exposure sliders & white balance. I then enhanced the sunset light with radial filters and manually created a vignette to compliment the play between highlights and shadows.
