Updated OS 10.7 or 10.8 for old iMac?

I have a five-year-old iMac currently running OS 10.6.8.  I want to upgrade my Lightroom from 4.4 to 5.3 which requires at least OS 10.7, 10.8 or 10.9. I appear to have enough memory and drive space for 10.7 at least.  I have been told that my machine is too old to upgrade to Maverick, and I probably wouldn't want to anyway.  But can anyone see any issues with upgrading to OS 10.7 or 10.8?

Specs are:

Model Identifier: iMac8,1

Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo

Processor Speed: 2.8 GHz

Number Of Processors: 1

Total Number Of Cores: 2

L2 Cache: 6 MB

Memory: 6 GB 800 MHz DDR2 SDRAM

Bus Speed: 1.07 GHz
