Yesterday, after an evening's playing with Adobe Lightroom 3, I was pleased but not overly thrilled with the image processing program.

Tonight I played a bit more, taking as my subject some very old digital photos from my old Canon Powershot G2. I took this overexposed and poorly color-balanced shot of a spectacular sunrise looking down my street taken in January 2003 (to left).

Tonight, playing with white balance, shadow and highlight recovery functions and the noise reduction setting, I ended up with the image you see above. Much more like it really was, and pretty stunning!
