tcab: Isn't there a fatal flaw in the inability to use Lightroom 4 on our old Lightroom 3 databases? Ideally I'd like to migrate my LR3 database to LR4 but this is not allowed. So these are the problems:
1. Having to boot up LR3 for some photos and LR4 on other photos will end up being a royal pain. Switching between programs all the time?
2. And what if I move photos and folders (which are referenced by LR3) around in LR4 and go back to LR3 - LR3 will go out of its mind not knowing what happened, and I will have to spend time repairing the LR3 catalog regarding photo locations.
This is potentially a real mess. The only way around it is to strictly use LR4 for new photos in new directory locations, and NEVER mess with your LR3 photos or your LR3 directory and photo locations using LR4. And vice versa.
tcab. Why not download LR4b and try it out on a few images.
The LR3 controls are exactly the same in LR4 under the 2010 process. If you choose the 2012 process, the develop controls change to the new layout.
Ragesh: good capture.. but it's more edited.. photoshop lighting effects brilliant... hats off!!!
Eyes are poorly done I admit, but the rest I see as true photographic highlights and shadows.
Just wondering why you say it's Photoshop lighting effects
Great shot and lovely BW conversion, except that it looks way over sharpened when viewed in full.
Lovely shot, but what on earth is going on with the color noise?
Colin Stuart: Some blurry, unsharp picture with a very photoshopped looking bunny in it WON?!?!
I don't even see the point in competitions with crap like this.
And the title of the competition was?
And if you don't like it, then enter something you think is better next time.
IcyVeins: Such an obvious photoshop, why even bother?
Doh! It's not photoshop. Have you never seen rabbits play like this?
Colour profile is different on the original, so it may not display correctly in some browsers. Great shot though.
I think this one is a well deserved winner as well.No 2 is good, but No 3 looks a bit HDR or dodged and burned a bit much.
Kamal Art: a beautiful look but manipulated pic is not reflects the pass, the dominent image is a peak, rather emphasizing the pass. one must reconsult the dictionary 4 meaning of a mountain pass ..........! moreover contradiction of light sources in pic is a clear cut violation of law of optics and photography ......!
Well that just sounds like sour grapes over a great shot.Violation of law of optics and photography? Just looks like a nicely done Panoramic to me.
