The lack of layers is probably LR's biggest Achille's heel and even that can be overcome using by Perfect Layers.

Despite many people's apparent love for them, LR's libraries and organisers leave me cold and don't believe that you have to use them. You don't.

"It's good to be . . . . . . . . . Me!"

Of course, if you use Perfect Layers, then you are no longer using Lightroom.  The fact that you can overcome LR's weakness with a separate program does not alter the fact that it is a weakness.  A greater weakness, IMO, is that LR's tools are feeble compared to Perfect Layers' and Nik's, which work on TIFFs rather than raw files.

I agree about LR's catalogs.  I find them cumbersome, but many others love them.  Basically, you can get used to any file management system.
