Just don't forget to wear your sunglasses if you go outside. Kept on the copper side (but gold wouldn't be too difficult).

Re: How to get this briliant look?

Here's a quicky attempt. I opened in ACR, adjusted the color by sampling the shadow on his shirt and playing with the sliders, slid up the recovery somewhat (maybe 20-30) and then the fill to around 45 (looks bad at this point). I then played with the black and contrast. Before opening in PS I brought down the vibrance and saturation to where it looked OK. In PS I did the sepia layer thing and darkened all around the edges and dodged his eyes slightly.

WTF!!! Hey Eddie - my Canon EOS 5D does exactly the same magenta shit to all my pictures! The first sec i view them in LightRoom the look awsome, and the sec after, the are litterally fucked like yours, magenta, red, contrast everything is about wrong!
Does anyone know away round this!?

My freind who also shoots raw, but uses Phaseone and Hasselblad - his images are soooo crisp, out of the camera! Why?!

image one is raw - two is edited for two million hours in lightroom...

Dude,
I don't use Lightroom so this is just a guess. Check your preferences and see what colorspace you have the raw conversion set to, it may be something other than AdobeRGB.

Re: How to get this briliant look?

Dude,
I'm not really understanding your response. Did you mean 'It is of course AdobeRGB', or did you mean is 'because of AdobeRGB'? If it is the first of the two versions, I'm also not understanding the additional three periods and exclamation point. Was this something I was supposed to surmise without knowing anything about you or your level of expertise? Many people of many skill levels visit this site and it is impossible to know where everyone is with their expertise. When answering a question I do not assume anything and do my best to phrase the answer in an informative and non-condescending way. You asked a question, I attempted to answer it. This forum assumes were all on the same side, searching for the greater knowledge from the community. Please explain you answer.

Re: How to get this briliant look?

Mann,
Lot of words Freud... I meant, of cause, thourght it were obvious in here, to shoot AdobeRGB?! Sorry! The same thing happens to Eddie - someone proberly had a solution, and you don't or what?
By the way this thread isn't about this! I would love to know the answer to the warm tone my self.

I have tried B/W adjs. layer with auto grayscale and the default warm tone selected, made it overlay mode and then 30 percent fill...

Dude,
Sorry. Your warm tone looks pretty nice. I used hue/saturation set to colorize with the hue at 30 and saturation at 25. Looks pretty close to yours, but you can tweak it later. Photo filter works too choosing a custom color.
