I revisited my archives for this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Sun. I posted a similar image last year of the Jefferson Memorial (in HDR), but I hadn’t realized at the time I had a frame that included a plane taking off from nearby Reagan National Airport. I edited this one in Adobe Lightroom 4 and found that it gave me some additional options from version 3. Although this has a slight hint of HDR, it’s just one image but with a heavier hand on the highlights and shadows sliders that are available in 4.
Looking back, I spent more than a decade in the darkroom playing with papers, chemicals, dodging and burning, and I have to admit that sitting at a computer (with dry hands and no fumes) in a nice bright room with a view is a much more enjoyable way to edit images!
