I've been using 'Lightroom' as software for photo organizing and editing for a few months now, still very much just scratching the surface of what it can do. What I really need to work on is organizing my photos so I can find what I want when I want it. But yesterday I was playing with editing.
It was a dull gray December afternoon, with snow everywhere, but a dull white under the clouds. I thought the pictures were basically useless. But as a learning exercise I decided to see how far I could push Lightroom adjustments, brightening and sometimes cropping these to make useable pictures. They're still not very good pix, but I was amazed at what you could do.
