Post-Processing: Shadow Tint

A month ago, I discovered that Lightroom has a tint control for the shadow portions of a picture.  You can either tint the shadows greenish or pinkish.

This is shown in the pics below.

Canon 7d + 18-135mm @135mm

I find this very useful in macro and closeup pics where the background is blurred.  Previously, the background is usually only black, grey, dirty green or some other unattractive color.
