Today I wanted to play with Lightroom 2 since I bought the upgrade recently. So, I chose this high contrast, poorly exposed image of a barn in winter, apropos of the recent weather we've been experiencing.
Snow scenes are challenging and I don't have much experience with them. Creatively, I am still not sure which way to go. Not happy yet, and not sure that this image can be salvaged.
But I am very impressed with what can be done in Lightroom 2 without having to leave it to go to Photoshop. And I continue to be amazed with what can be done in the "darkroom" without getting my hands wet.
Here are some of the experiments from today. I am showing several versions along with the original color version here at the end.
