lightroom 3 – f@$% me!

First Impressions of Lightroom 3’s noise reduction and new imaging engine. Shots Taken on 7d, auto profile lens correction and chromatic abberation. I deliberately picked an underexposed file to see what could be done. Real estate work often involves mixing 3 exposures – especially if you use natural light as I do. Its not uncommon to have 12 or more stop range. THe more dynamic range I can squeeze out of the camera the less work I have to do in photoshop. Lightrrom 3 is getting close to the point where you can do all your gross image processing in that app, and leave photshop for the retouching and “artifying”.

no settings (no highlight clipping in the sky)

fill lit the beejesus out of it:

But what about noise… (1:1)

Its still noisy but its darn tooting usable, especially at the sort of size needed.

or you can loose more and go a bit creamy:

So then, its a shame its a slow as a dog (with no legs)

(The last line should be spoken like Jermemy Clarkson)
