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?

Both my BS and MS degree is in the area of art with both painting and photography as my majors.  I use Lightroom in order to process my images, and then if I see one that I wish to work on further, I move them in to PS in order to create a oil or water color painting out of that image.  I am unable to create those hand painted paintings using Lightroom so I use PS6 in order to accomplish that task.
