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 have LR4 and PSE 12. I do 99% in LR using Highlight and Shadows brushes a lot. I have presets for each camera and each possible ISO. In PSE, I use the clone tools and, once a year, I create a composite Xmas card picture.
