Here are five dramatic examples of Lightroom images that demonstrate the power of camera raw! My favorite Lightroom tools are Graduated and Radial filters. They are similar to traditional burning and dodging darkroom tools, but far easier to master.
Lightroom can dramatically change the look of your photography!

This photograph of zebras at dusk in Namibia by Shaula Yemini was originally overlooked. After doing some developing in the Basic Panel, we lightened the shadows in the zebras and background using Radial filters, then warmed up the evening sunset sky and watering hole using Graduated filters. And even though this was shot at a high ISO of 1000, we revealed some wonderful details, especially the dust being kicked up. (Photo © 2015 Shaula Yemini)
