French Alley

A little shot I worked on tonight. Nothing spectacular but I liked the way it turned out. I'm very impressed by Lightroom's ability to pull detail out of shadows. This one was a throwaway before, too dark. But looking at it again with new software I found that I had a picture.

Nice shot! Reminds me a bit of a Harry Potter-like atmosphere, could be a side street of Diagon Alley

Nice shot GeoJerry. Worth saving. Amazing what new software can do as long as you have a good photo to start with. You obviously did.

It's done that to me a few times too, a good piece of software for bailing me out on occasion.

I've been using LR since beta 1 and I've upgraded with each new version. I've just upgraded again to LR CC (6) and it's the best version yet. Excellent job with the PP on that image Jerry!

Claustrophobic? It's only 15 bricks wide.... very effective image, the shadow detail is great.

Thanks rbnvrw! It did look otherworldly, it was so narrow.

Well... thanks... I think! But I think you posted in the wrong picture?

Thanks Susan. Agreed, new software can really give you a fresh start.

Thanks... obviously designed for the pre-car era. Hmmmm.. wonder if a Prius could make it down this road?

Thanks Steve! Is there any difference between LR CC 6 and LR 6? I think I'd prefer to own my own copy as I often have internet access issues when traveling.

Thanks Norm! I think LR does a much better job than Aperture in bringing out shadow detail. But I miss some of Aperture's features, like the luminance brushes.

Thanks jbarry, Ironic that I never really paid any attention to this one until this week. It was shot in Dec 2010.

Jerry, there is no difference between LR CC and 6 except you pay monthly instead of upfront and all updates are at no additional cost. The software is downloaded onto your computer just like the stand alone version. You don't actually have to do anything online unless you use the cloud features.

When push comes to shove in Aperture Jerry, you just do the best you can, export as a tiff , re-import and start all over again. It's pain, and I don't see why Aperture doesn't allow you to tap it's full potential without doing that, but hey, you can get by.
