    Armand,

    Very good. My only comment would be that the light pattern on the wall is questionable as light disperses more as it gets further from the source, whereas yours converges toward the ground.

    Other than that, I’m going to give it a go. Thanks for posting the technique.

    Regards,

    Gordon

    muy buen montaje, pero la sombra esta hechada demasiado al frente de la modelo, debio recostarse mas a la izquierda de la misma y más cenital, porque al parecer figura como si la luz viniese atras de ella, muy buen tratamiento.

    Just wanted to say that is one AWESOME tutorial! To be honest, I thought it looked very daunting, but seeing that it’s basically WB adjustments! That’s just pure genius! Totally something I could try my hand at! I will be on the lookout for images that fit this kind of project!

    Thank you for taking the time to do this!

    Exactly what I was looking for. Didn’t know Lightrooom had these features. Gonna give it a shot and hopefully good use for my current project.

    good day i loved your work I want to make same pic you did
    but i want to know the first step you did using the light room
    i want to know the dimension that you used in making the lit version of the pic
    and the dark one.

    i did as you said but there is something missing in not look exactly as yours in the lit version and the dark one

    will you please provide me with the exact dimensions that you used to adjust the pics in the lightroom.

    i will be thankful

    regards

    I found this tutorial from another “author” somewhere else: http://blogswizards.com/advanced-day-to-night-photoshop#disqus_thread
    I assume, you are the author and they copied it?
    Anyway: Thank you for the Tutorial, it helped me a lot!

    awesome tutorial. i aint got lightroom though. that sucks. anyway to achieve those results in step one in photoshop alone…

    also i kinda feel cast shadow you created is placed incorrectly. in order for your shadow to be realistic the light source would need to be BEHIND her right shoulder (our left) some, though that would be impossible since shes up against a tall wall. the light source is in front of her body though. light would be hitting her front right side, so therefor a “cast” shadow should cast on her rear left side, on the ground directly below her some and mainly on the wall not on the floor in front of her, there would need to be a 2ndary light source that was much stronger behind her to do that… but like i said that would be impossible since shes up against a tall wall.
