    Default Some Birds

    I just tried the Lightroom 3, and man it's amazing in noise suppression.
    The sparrow was shot with 70-300 the other two with 50-200. Sparrow was underexposed by at least one and a half stop, so i got looots of noise, and the lightroom cleaned it up unbelievable. I still have noise on the branch, but when I got exposure in order it was so noisy that picture would be good for garbage only. With LR it's usable.
    Edit:
    No cropping done in any picture.

    Did you add the vignetting on those two 50-200 shots yourself ? Or was there something in the way ?

    I love LR3's new anti-noise. But I don't like the program's overal speed. It's way slower then 2.7. Almost feels like there's something wrong with it.

    I don't suppose you'd post a copy of the original image prior to noise reduction so we can see the actual difference? I'm still debating getting LR3 and going back to shooting RAW.
    Cheers, Dave

    ^^^No, not at all.
    Just tell me if you want me to export the ORF as is, or you want me to bring the exposure up to this very same level and then export it for comparison ?

    And as far as the speed goes - I have heard lots of negative stuff about 3.0 beta, and I did download it but never had chance to install it.

    I tried this version, and did not notice a single bit of laziness. Although, I must add, I have never used 2.x versions. So far I used Picasa for my organization and some basic editing (crop/export stuff) and Adobe Camera Raw/Photoshop for some serious editing, but I think I will use LR/PS from now on for most of my work.

    And as far as Vignetta goes - I added it in pp, but it might be a bit too much, so I will re-do it.

    Does anyone notices underexposure of this pics ? I uploaded them in a Serbian photo/design forum and ppl mostly told me they are underexposed. I don't have my monitor calibrated yet, and have just completed my basement project (so my main pc was off for last 6 months) so I don't remember if I did change the brightness of the monitor just before I had it turned off.

    Also I read review of Lightroom and Aperture on Arstechnica forums and it seems that new Aperture works better in noise removal (hard to believe from this perspective), but I had no chance to test it.
