First Attempt At Editing Some Photos

So I took so really random photos today, but then I edited them using Lightroom 4, a piece of software I have never ever used before.

Can you tell me what you think? Also if anyone has any tips for using Lightroom, that would be great!

The branches on the first picture looks a little too green, I'd use a layer to tone down the saturation and give it a more brown/grayish color and up the contrast to make it more "tree-bark-ish"look.

Also the fact that you didn't post the originals make it hard to see what's been done really, nature stills like these usually just gets a contrast and level bump paired with a sharpener.

Can you post some lightroom history too let us know what's been done exactly?

Errr... does Lightroom allow you to use Layers? Isn't that just photoshop? I've watched some of the tutorials and she doesn't mention layers... :S

I'll tone down the green, but they were green 'cause they're covered in moss. I'll try make it a little less so.

Also, can I copy and paste the history? When I try, it just tries to move the order in which I've done it.

Just snip tool it, also, Photoshop is so much better for editing like everything because of, well, layers.

I'd just like to say in addition to the first comment, the photos are gorgeous! There are a few flaws in the first one that would be hard to avoid, but other than that, great job :)
