Creating pastel shades: New Video tutorial

In this Lightroom tutorial I share how to create a pastel feel for a beach hut image taken on the fly. I show how to correct a horizon, use the colour mixer to make adjustments to the light of individual colours in the image, and use the basic contrast, highlights and shadows controls to give a pastel feel to the image.

Beach huts, Felixstowe

Having not been at the coast for some weeks, we took a day trip to Felixstowe to see the sea, eat fish and chips and hear the waves crashing on the beach.  I have done a very pastel treatment on this beach huts image as the huts were largely painted in pastel colours so the treatment seemed appropriate.
