Given the advances in LR, it seems like a lot of photographers have made it their destination of choice for most of their post-processing, leaving PS for the more difficult adjustments or to finish off their best captures. Even Jeff Schewe in The Digital Negative cites the 80/20 rule (80% in LR, 20% in PS) for his own workflow.

So the question for you LR users is: What do you use PS for? What types of adjustments do you leave for PS because LR is not up to the task?

I use PS primarily for Content Aware and plugins which I find more convenient to apply from PS than from within Lightroom as I generally use more than one plugin so I don't have to make multiple trips in and out of LR by applying all such adjustments from within PS and then returning to LR.
