I had this thread specifically in mind when I took this shot while on vacation. While nothing special, I just wanted to see if working the raw file might allow for a cleaner image of an otherwise hazy tide pool with a reflection on it. In my mind it makes a great case for shooting raw. Wish I would have taken a few more! ;)

Cory - thanks for your contribution.
Now I should have a couple of more keepers as I have run into this problem.

Great information!

I would usually use PS on something like this, but I decided to take it as a challenge to see if I could actually make something out of it using only LR.

Merovius, look into using the lens correction and fixing the heavy vignette on your image, other than that it's excellent. memoriesoftomorrow, Great work :)

Looks like the vignette has been added afterwards and is intensional.
Looks good to me. Nice work.

Peter, did you try this one as a portrait crop? Those converging lines are eye catching.


Cheers, Damien

If he had read the first post of this thread he had added screen shots or at least information of his edit settings and none of us would be left with the guess work....

Cheers.
