Thanks Reilly

The abilty to work with blown highlights and deep shadow is improved a lot over the old "fill light" slider. I can hardly blame anyone for preferring to work with curves in PS over LR3. The new panel takes a day or so until you get used to it, but it really is genius.

The DPR review nails it:

Download the trial and give it 30 days. I hate spending money on upgrades, too, but this one is indispensible as far as my 'scapes are concerned.

I can see I'll have to do that. I'm reluctant to let LR swell its database for my landscapes which I'd rather file my way, so would be interesting to see if the gains are worth the compromise there, but I can see it being useful for weddings.

PS is still tops for layers, etc., of course, but LR4 does a lot of heavy lifting very quickly and easily.

I'm dead without layers.

The new brush with noise reduction and WB capability is pretty nifty as well.
