Star Bee (Lightroom edit)
Lens: tamron 90mm macro Photo Location: Montgomery, AL 
Posted By: Knock, 08-16-2017, 08:57 PM

I recently bought a new computer and also decided to give Lightroom a try. I have used FlashStone for several years and I am extremely comfortable with it. I want to give Lightroom an honest try, but I'm a little overwhelmed with the learning curve (I'm not great with computers). I'm hoping that Lightroom will give me a little more editing power.

Lightroom can be really quick once you get the hang of it! For this shot, I'd recommend by starting with the colors and contrast, as well as the shadows/highlights. A small boost here and there will really bring the shot to life. Also, consider testing out the lens correction feature to eliminate the (slight) fringing around the edge of the flower.
