A few weeks ago, I visited Cape Cod and had a great time shooting around the coast, harbors, lighthouses, etc.

While I was out there, I was thinking a lot about Lightroom 3 beta and how I might improve my workflow and the quality of my image files. I captured a whole bunch of frames to put Lr 3 beta to the test. Here is the first example.

This is Nauset Light, in Eastham. I arrived about 45 minutes before dawn. (I like to shoot lighthouses before sunrise or after sunset, when we can actually see the light!)

1.6 sec at f/16, ISO 250
Canon EOS 5D mark II
Canon EF 24-105 at 35 mm

The first image is the original capture. The second is the final image, processed entirely in Lightroom. Lens Corrections, white balance changes, sharpening, improved demosaicing on the raw capture… I was really impressed with what Lightroom could do with this capture. One more example of a photo that may never need to see Photoshop 😉

Let me know what you think!!
