The only thing that kept putting me off Lightroom was my results using the sharpening and noise reduction tool, especially on noisy images.
Now I finally understand the Detail Panel in Lightroom after reading a old article by Jeff Schewe.
It was like a light bulb suddenly clicked on.
Lets face it even ISO 800 on the Olympus E-30 is a little bit noisy even though the noisiest images looks good at web size.
Blue Tit at ISO 800 and a 100% crop where it counts when judging noise, looks like I will be using LR more now with a bit more practice with the detail panel.
