This is a view of Dolores Peak and Woods Lake just after sunrise, in Uncompahgre National Forest, SW Colorado.
I just got Lightroom. Believe it or not, up until now I’ve been doing all of my image post-processing in Picasa. It’s (very) basic, but assuming your original image is in pretty good shape, you can usually get some pretty good results.
But, I got Lightroom. And this is my first ham-fisted attempt at using it. The problem is, my computer is old. Very old. And Lightroom doesn’t run very fast. Like, when I move a slider, it takes 4-5 seconds to see the result. This makes subtle adjustments just about impossible. (If you want to move a slider back and forth 4 or 5 times to get it just right, you’ll be sitting there for a couple minutes – for ONE adjustment. Yarrghh.)
So, I’m basically looking at upgrading my PC now. And in the meantime, there’s this one. I feel like it’s a bit over-processed. Also, I tried starting from scratch a couple times to se if I could replicate the results (to see if I really understood what I was doing), and I couldn’t come close (which means I don’t, yet.) Oh well, figured I’d go ahead and toss it up here, since I had it and all.

This was taken near the top of a waterfall (the name of which I sadly don’t know) just outside of Ames, Colorado.
