6. Colour luminance
Colour luminance settings can give you control over dynamic range. In Lightroom and Camera Raw this can be done with the HSL/Color Panel’s Luminance tab. We can either use the sliders or drag over the image with the target tool. Darkening the blues here dramatically improves the sky
What the Histogram looks like
Shadows, Midtones, Highlights
Far left to 0 indicates how much shadow detail is present
Far right to 255 indicates how much highlight detail is present
The midway point indicates how much midtone detail is present
Anything beyond 255 is completely white with no detail present. Anything below 0 is completely black with no detail present.
You can also think of these as colours:
Shadows = Black or dark colours
Midtones = Grey or muted colours
Highlights = White or bright colours
The height of each line represents the amount of pixels in your image that contain that tone. So for example, the big peak shows there are a lot of pixels containing the tonal value. Notice also that on the far left there is an area with no lines. This means that there are no pixels with those tonal values. So there are no dark shadows from 0 to about 10.
