Does anyone else think that an HSL and Color adjustment should be added to the Adjustment Brush masking tool? I shoot a lot of cars and portraits. My issue is mainly with shooting cars as there are fluorescent ceiling lights in the garage studio creating a lot of blue haze in some of my images; however, if I turn down my blue saturation for the haze in my shadows in HSL and I'm shooting a blue car or a car with emblems that are blue, I lose those colors as well. It would be beneficial to be able to mask these haze colors with an adjustment brush in LR instead of having to go to Photoshop or jury-rigging a preset of mine in calibration or messing with a lot of other brush masks. That can be very time-consuming so I end up not even bothering. How do I put this in some suggestion box for Adobe to possibly add it in a future update? Thanks!

I have seen this requested a LOT and I too would like to have HSL local adjustments.

I have faced similar issues shooting interiors with mixed lighting.

To correct this I use the white balance adjustments in the brush with excellent results. Another possibility is giving the brush a slight tint of the complementary colour e.g an orange tint to compensate for a blue cast.

You can combine either method with auto-masking where appropriate.

Yes, I've tried using those mask sliders before; however, I usually have to adjust other HSL sliders or use a small brush to compensate for other colors it might be changing that I don't want changed. Both are tedious which is why I've been wanting a feature like I'm describing for a while.

You can do that now with the new Color Range Mask tool. It works quite well once you understand how to use it. Here's an example:

Absolutely it should.  Now I need to go to Luminar Neo to do this - really disappointing that I can't stay in the Adobe ecosystem to do this.
