Whenever I use Lightroom to retouch my photos, I usually go through a few familiar steps to remove fringe colors in my photos.  In the video above I present a two-step process to let Lightroom automatically removes most if not all fringe colors in a photo.

Vietnamese 2013 New Year, Year of Snake, Sneak Peek Photo

Yesterday was an eventful day for me.  Drove my mom to a Buddhist temple to celebrate a Vietnamese New Year (2013 — a year of snake).  Took some photos there.  When we left the Buddhist temple, we witnessed the aftermath of a freak car accident on a highway.  A car was burned to crisp, but before that a flame was engulfed the car, ejecting huge plume of smoke up high into the air.  Another car was flipped upside-down with broken glasses.  Furthermore, I think there was a third car which involved with this accident, but I’m not sure.  Anyhow, I took some photos of the accident with my HTC 8x smartphone camera.  Luckily, I also remembered I had Nikon D3200 with me and so I used it to capture the accident scene some more.  Unfortunately, I could only capture the burning car with engulfing flame on HTC 8X smartphone camera, because by the time I got my Nikon D3200 out the firefighter had arrived onto the scene and blocked up the view and did what they had to in putting out the flame.  Anyhow, as usual, in post production, I retouched the photos I took on February 10th of 2013 with Lightroom 4, and now these photos are on Flickr for you all to see.  Enjoy ’em photos by going to EndlessBit.com (my photo blog) or just view the slideshow right after the break.
