    Strange, but cool rendering in lightroom... please help..

    While attempting to edit some shots in light room, I was presented with what you see below. How did it happen and how can I save that rendering? The only thing I did was to click on develop. It is a pretty cool image though. I would love to have a copy just like it.

    Hi texaslimo -

    I'm pretty new to Lightroom, but from my experience with photography in general this looked to me like an exposure "inversion". So I searched for how to invert a picture in Lightroom and came up with this:

    I hope it's what you're looking for. Best of luck!

    On your left hand panel, you can click on snapshot and save the current rendering. In a normal situation you could then do more edits or reset the image and start over, easily going back to the snapshop at any time. But if this is a display glitch of some sort, it might not save as you see it. I don't know what this is. It doesn't look like a simple color inversion to me.
    I must have a really good camera.

    It's not an inversion. If it were, re-inverting it would render the image 'normal'. It doesn't. This is what you end up with if you do this:

    I call the effect 'posterization'.
    Don't mind me... I'm out roaming around somewhere between Zone III and VII.

    Not really a Lr user sorta guy, and I don't have it installed so I can't check this myself, but...

    Could that be the result of using some kind of monochrome preset, one that's monochroming based on color-channel? Because that's kind of what it looks like to me.

    The banding makes me think it's a result of reducing the bit depth.

    It is something inside lightroom that is the problem. Some kind of setting or tweak. When I export this photo, it comes out as a normal photo.

    Can you post the original file somewhere where we can download it? It would be interesting to see where the problem is… whether it’s in the actual NEF file or whether it’s in the embedded JPG… testing with someone else’s LR will determined whether it’s a LR issue or whether it’s a corrupt file issue…

    If you want a copy as is I would go into the photo in develop and look for make a virtual copy. Do that and than export it. Than I would click on the original at the bottom of the right panel and click the reset button. It looks like your preview is fine, but something strange happened to the file. Is it an NEF file or a DNG file. I ask because I only import NEF files and do not convert them to DNG. I suppose it might have been something happened in that process, but I do not know.

    I have not had anything like that happen in LR and I use it on all my photos. One other thing might be to import the files again and make sure you have "none" selected in the area of "Develop Settings" under "Apply on Import" in the top of the Right Panel. You could have something there that is not playing well.
