Does Lightroom have a dodge and burn tool? Is there an equivalent function? I have a text for Lightroom 3, using Lightroom 4 and there is a section on creative color processing which applied different tints to highlights and shadows. I have Elements, so I could use that program, just wondering if Lightroom has the same functions.
My reason for asking is I have a photo that I am processing, the intention when taking was to create an image with interesting depth or 3 dimensionality. This is an example of the image I will process.
f/8, ISO200, 1/200sec, 55mm lens

I am not real sure what you are trying to achieve, however Lightroom does have-
Dodge and Burn- Yes- Its the adjustment brush- just paint with the brush and adjust (exposure, clarity, colour, etc, etc)
Duo Tone Shadows and Highlights- Yes- can be applied to a colour image for "Cross Processing" effects.
If it is a faux 3D effect you are after by creating a Red/Blue colour shifted image viewed with R/B glasses, this is not possible in Lightroom and you would need Photoshop or a dedicated program that works with layers and masks to achieve this effect.

I will start with the adjustment brushes for now.
