I love lightroom, i use it every day for my photos, but there are some features that can be upgraded.

In Capture One, when i select color for change tonality or saturation etc, i can define the specific color (or range) which the sliders affects...
So if i've a red t-shirt and a pink shoes, i can isolate perfectly the colors!
An improvement can be the mask on it!
For example integrating the normal COLOR Panel (or an advanced color management) in the Local Adjustment.

Actually sharpness is orrible!
I usually export in TIFF to Photoshop, I use unsharp mask (or High Pass) and I re-save my photos..
An Idea can be use Unsharp Mask o High Pass as options of Details Panel.
First idea: Don't save file with sharpness but only information in the catalog... and make sharpness in real-time everytime i watch my photo (with an option to disable only the view of the sharpness, so with slow pc i've sharpness but i can see it only if I enable the option in the panel).
Second idea: Create DNG or TIFF file with this sharpness. In Lightroom i can create HDR and Merge creating DNG file... so why don't insert advanced sharpness?!

Simple! I've my local adjustments with "pin" on my photo? Why don't hide "pin" and create a level panel... So clickinig the layer i can see my mask, i can move levels up and down, i can overwrite my retouch without clicking casually on another "pin".

Feature requests work better on a one-request-per-post type of basis.  That way, people can comment and vote for the individual features and Adobe can better track which features have the most traction. 

Where the features already exist, as is the case with most of what you are asking here, it is better to add your +1 and comments to the existing request.  

Please consider splitting your posts into individual features where the feature is new and adding your comments to existing requests where it is not.

Rikk, maybe Adobe should make that clear when one is making a request - that they should be placed individually. I totally agree but the natural human instinct is to list all things that they want improved in one statement. A bit like writing a letter to someone.
