I’ve been wanting to do another Lightroom Only post for a while, and this photo gave me the perfect opportunity to do just that. This image comes from Koganezaki – a lovely cape on the Western coast of Japan’s Izu Peninsula. Considering how lovely it is, I was all the more disappointed that the weather was not nicer. As you can see, it was totally cloudy, with only a short window of diffused light coming through the clouds from the sunset on the other side. This was enough to give me something to work with, but it was also quite a challenge to edit. However, it is precisely for that reason that this image is so perfect for a Lightroom Only post – it shows just how powerful Lightroom can be! Even in a challenging scene like this, with light rapidly fading and little color to speak of, Lightroom allows you to create a beautiful image without all of the technical Photoshop know-how. And that is one reason I would recommend it to anyone interested in photography – it’s a fantastic tool to take your photography to the next level!
