Yes, please, please show me your light room shots - ideally with some notes on what you did in light room for the processing.

As an elements user, I like lens correction and curves, even a small bit lo local masking, but seem to find myself giving up and switching to elements10 from within LR4beta to do layers and skin softening etc. For editing i don't yet see it as too helpful.

Cataloguing, importing, exporting, speed is great though.

Practically every image in my PF for the last 3 years has been edited in Lightroom.

This example with the latest version , albeit still only in Beta ....... Lightroom 4 BETA.

Another shot using Lightroom 4 BETA for editing

I have been revisiting some of my images to try out the new "Basic" controls in the Development Module.
Better control of the highlights / shadows is the predominant feature with brighter / cleaner "Whites" being my best discovery with the testing.

Hadrians Wall shot last month in RAW on Nikon D90, then processed in LR4 - just added grad filter, then saturation, crop, clarity tweaks.



Matterhorn, shot by my son in December last in JPEG at ISO 800 on my old D70S. LR4 was able to pull something useful out of a difficult shot.
