Never Too Old to Play on Rocks

Well, at least this isn't Pfeiffer Beach :) It's a bit north of there at Garapata Beach.

This is another image that benefitted from Lightroom2. The people have been accented and sharpened making them pop a bit and making the DoF more prominant. The original of this image (RAW) was pretty monochromatice making everything kind of blur together.

You rescued a really effective image out of the monochrome blur; looks like it may have been a very windy day.

Looks pretty good to me Jack. Please explain the benefits and appeal of Lightroom over Photoshop, I tried Lightroom about a year ago and struggled to understand why it had been marketed or whom it was aimed at. Seems to me that it just does Photoshop's work but simplifies the placment of tools and structure of the workflow
