I value your comments
I have completed my organization and backup. I have loaded LR5 on my computer but not sure how it works yet. I will be experimenting over the next few weeks. In the meantime, I will be posting some oldies and some new images.

SONY NEX-C3 1/500 second F/5.6 ISO 200 30 mm

Photography is my hobby and I enjoy viewing your comments and images , because they help me become better. I look through my lens and see art, beauty, color, texture and detail. I hope you enjoy seeing my journey from my point of view. Thanks for stopping by.

That drop looks half-frozen-cool! Lightroom is fun to use, and very intuitive. It is a great program for organizing and editing your images. There are lots of tutorials and videos out there, so have fun!

Gorgeous image! The drop of ice just pops! Fantastic focus. I love the background. I have an earlier version of Lightroom. I didn't take a class and have regretted it. I suppose it is not too late. I have found it seems complicated in organizing pictures. I think it would have helped if I had taken a class early on.
