So, saw a link to DxO OpticsPro 9 Elite. They are apparently a promotion right now at http://www.dxo.com/us/digitalcamerauk where you can get it for free. So I decided to try it.

So far I’ve only tried one photo on it and I’m liking the results. The photo is from my walk at Moraine Hills the other day. I loved the sparkling of the sun and such, but everything else was just too dark.

I tried editing this in lightroom yesterday, but it just wasn’t having it. This really helped. It might not be photoshop, but it is definitely good for a free program!
