For this particular image I have over-exposed to try and capture the shadows.
When attempting to recover the image with LR 4.2, I end up with a tree that looks like it has "fur", or that all of its twigs are covered in snow/ice which is not the case.
How do I fix this?
None of the usual suspects (detail, sharpness, etc) seem to help.
Of the attachments below..
lr42_1to1 is a 1:1 bitmap capture of Lightroom of the region that is infected with fur.
raw_windows_viewer is the image as displayed by Microsoft's photo viewer, i.e. I suspect this is just the jpeg stored in the raw file.
blue_1to1 is a bitmap capture of me displaying only the blue channel. For the purposes of the tree, the green channel looks similar.
red_1to1 is a bitmap capture of me displaying only the red channel. This would appear to introduce confusion into the subject matter that is the tree.
