  1. Do you have Lightroom? I can never decide whether or not I should invest in it, given that I’m not a professional photographer and it would be mostly for fun. Then I see shots like this and think maybe I’d enjoy something more than the free editors.



    • Yes. I wouldn’t live without Lightroom! I haven’t learned Photoshop yet but I use Lightroom all the time. I import everything direct from my camera into Lightroom. It is a brilliant catalogue system and that is where I enter keywords so that I can find things for challenges. And then the edit starts. The edit of this shot was quite easy. Just an unusual thing to do with a simple tool. There are other tools that compete with Lightroom and BA photoshop but O haven’t tried them. Certainly many amateurs and professionals do storage and initial edit with Lightroom. Then many move into Photoshop to do fancier things. The best thing about Lightroom is that it’s non destructive. Your initial shot from the camera remains the same. And all of the edits are stored separately. So no matter what kind of edit you do you can always go back to scratch.

  2. i bet you are feeling like things are up in the air. I love your shot. I bet you wish you could just fly away and be on top of the branches, far away from everything, even if for a moment or two. 😀
