Week 10: Fix yellow shadows in a pink peony

The camera never lies, but your eyes will deceive you. Who knew that the shadows in a pink peony were actually yellow?

With a bit of Lightroom tweaking you can restore your disappointingly yellow peony to her pinkful glory. It's easier to show in a video, but if you just want the yellow shadow steps, here they are:

Develop module > HSL box > tweak orange and yellow HUE sliders (to the left)

Develop module > HSL box > tweak orange and yellow SATURATION sliders (to the right)
