Your images are excellent! these are just little adjustments that will take the images to the next level.



Notice shadows too bright. Possibly because shadows have been turned up in basic panel, never use the shadow slider, it flattens out the image too much.


Here is a very handy video on the sharpening and luminance/ noise sliders, I find most YouTube tutorials are rubbish, but this one is excellent, just helps too see what the sliders really do.



Blacks and shadows now fixed, much more depth in blacks, especially jersey, shorts, socks


Fixed issue in tone curve, only subtle change. It’s important to get blacks at right level as it makes the image flow better, slight increase in highlights to produce contrast more naturally.

It’s great to play around with this panel, you get used to seeing the changes.
