Gerry was a blast to hang out with and the light most obliging through the window of the cafe that morning. I opened up the shadows some with LR4 - a most versatile program this has become, with its latest enhancements. It facilitates gradual tonal changes and the brush very easy to use that I seldom find a need to use PS except with portrait touch up and repair.
Anyway, if you are on the fence with LR4, take a serious look. And we haven't even discuss its significant prowess as a file management and data base tool.
Appreciate all your encouragement and feedback as always.
