Lightroom future suggestion: (Brown) color slider, glare reducer

Two features I would love to see incorporated into the next Lightroom;
1) A (brown) color slider [controlling saturation, vibrance, etc]
2) A glare reducer: Possibly controlled by picking two points in-between glare spots, or using multiple (method of triangulation) that reduces glare by gradually adjusting color to the selected points outside of the glare zone.
I edit interiors of homes and glares [stainless steel refrigerators] can be very difficult to deal with.
Thanks much: -Reid

By "brown" color slider do you mean "skin color"? The targeted-adjustment-tool in the HSL sliders will let you adjust colors similar to the color under the cursor. Vibrance is an adjustment of color strength that adjusts non-red colors more than red colors, so I don't know how that would apply to a limited range of colors. What else besides color strength are you wanting to adjust? You say "etc".

By "glare" do you mean "white" or "less-contrasty" areas? Have you tried HDR photography?

A few example pictures might be helpful in understanding exactly what you're wanting.

It's actually in HDR that I'm having the most trouble with glare, when I overlap the photos I find the "blues/whites" have a hard time melding together.

As for the browns, it would be great to be able to adjust them without adjusting the reds

For best results - split your feature request.

+1 for brown color control.

(I didn't really understand the glare reducer proposal)
