    Thought I would try to expand my PS skills and try something different on a portrait. This is how I would normally approach this image and the new processing.

    1) Lightroom only processing.

    2) Lightroom and Photoshop processing.

    Thanks sscarmack. I guess, I haven't learned how to put the sun spot in there from LR.

    Play with the gradient by adjusting the angle, exposure, white balance, etc. until you get to your desired look. :) There might be an easier way, but that's how I usually do it, haha.

    ETA: then you can play with the colors in the shadows/highlights/split toning/etc.

    Thanks Wade. That's pretty much what I did in PS with layers. I copied a way that someone from a youtube video. I will have to try that in LR to see if I can do it there.

    The flare effect is well executed. I like the original more though. I'd clone out the dock top left or maybe crop in a little tighter. My 0.02.

    Thanks @aoposton, I see what you mean. I'm not a flare kind of person but I want to be able to do it if the situation calls for it or if I am asked to do it.
