Aperture experts please help (repost)
This is not exactly what you got with LR but pretty close, I think.
The following are the Aperture adjustments:
Black Point 3.00
Sharpen Intensity 0.6 and Radius 1.9
Hope this helps some. LR seems to give it a more subdued tone than Aperture. Selective burning brush was tried but didn't give me the result like what you had
