original photoI'm just about to finish my Digital Image Management class. This class was stressful at first and highly enjoyable by the end. I am not a big fan of Photoshop at all. I'm very much a simplistic person, and like my computer programs to run the same way. So, when Lightroom 2 was sent in my software package I got at enrollment for my program, I was totally in love. It is the best software program for photo editing I have ever attempted to use.

This class was all about using this software. I had the basics down. Even downloaded additional presets off the internet to give me further editing options. Now, at the conclusion of this course - I can make my own presets and can further expand my editing abilities.

I can't seem to stop playing around with all these new adjustments that I was so afraid to try before. This collection of photos is a showcase of that love. I took 1 photo -- something I took recently during the drive back from getting dog food and walking around the mall. It was raining and dark, my two favorite combinations when I am taking photos from the car.
