Purple sunset

Today my copy of Lightroom arrived and I was excited to give it a try. I'm definitely a bit flummoxed at the moment, since I had my previous workflow down pat and could get my outfit photos processed in as little as 20 minutes.

Tonight I've been fussing over them for the past hour, because everything from how I select the photos to how they get uploaded to flickr changes with the switch to Lightroom.

I'm sure once I get a feel for everything I'll get my new rhythm setup... so I let you know how I feel about it in another week or so.

I will tell you this much - that sky didn't need a whole lot of editing, it really was that gorgeous purple. Truly one of best sunsets in a while (definitely the one I was hoping for the other night when I was wearing the pink capris). But I'm lucky to have caught it!

And yes, I did get myself that leopard fedora from Target. I feel like the way it looks online is a little misleading - this is not a typical stiff fedora, it's floppy. Also, the web page says it's 100% wool, and well, there is not even 1% wool in this thing! It's combination of rabbit hair, nylon and poly.

Beautiful! Business like with a touch of flair. I think it's the feather.

We had a gorgeous sunset here the other night. It was too cold for outfit pics, but I think I got some nice ones of just the sky.

That is such a cut hat and I love it with that trench...and wow the sky is gorgeous - how did I not notice that the other day?

Lightroom is awesome, though I personally use Aperture. One day I'm going to spring for CS5, although by that time it'll probably be more like CS10.

I didn't notice the feathers in that hat before! So cute. I love that trench so much, and I know I tell you that all the time. But seriously, it's like the epitome of trenchiness.

Daniela said...

beautiful sunset! I love you trench too

Yeah, I was surprised too when I went to Target and looked at that hat, because it definitely looks very stiff in the pictures but isn't in real life.

This outfit is fantastic! I think the trench coat really ties everything together.

Frannie Pantz said...

Bummer about the hat discrepancies, but it looks cute! I love this look on you Lyddie. The skirt and the coat and the hat are all great together. And take a look at that gorgeous sky!

Meesh said...

Such gorgeous photos. The sky color really complements the trench.

20-minute process time? If only! I work in GIMP, and get annoyed just with the time it takes to resize, haha.

Your hat looks great, love the little mix of leopard.

The fedora is so cool with the feathers. It gives it something a little extra. Beautiful sunset too.

Gorgeous pictures! Love the second one...looks like a card!

Vanessa said...

Gorgeous sunset! And from what I can see so far, I really like your lightroom processing! Curious to see how you feel after you're fully adjusted.
I loved that Albertus Swanepoel hat! I debated so much between it and another. I finally got the other one, but I've been thinking of the fedora.!

These photos are so lovely! The feathers on the fedora are such a great touch, and your floral skirt is really lovely. I've been disappointed in some Target fedoras too, but never outright lied to about the material. That is not cool.

Ki said...

Sucks about the hat not being wool, but it does look great on you :)

rlutz said...

Such a beautiful sunset, such vibrant purples!
Love how you styled that great hat with the neutral staples and that floral skirt!!

Clara Turbay said...

Gorgeous pieces and glam style!

the sunset is beautiful. Glad you were able to capture it this time! That fedora does look way different online but it sure does look cute on you.

PS I so agree that more people need to start keeping to the "list." I dont need another body gel thank you :)
