Love Affair

Yes, I'm having a love affair with Lightroom.  I've learned that I can completely (well almost completely) edit an image in Lightroom.  As far as I can see, I can do everything in LR except add layers.  What that means is I have to go into Photoshop to add a texture or text.  Other than that, LR can almost do it all.
For Texture Tuesday, I cheated a bit.  I used Kim's LR preset "Touchadrama".
I liked it so much I never added the texture.  This pretty little bowl came from Anthropologie.  
Join me at Texture Tuesday for more beautiful images.
Kim is actually highlighting images from some of the contributors.

Shells are a gift from the sea. Your image is beautiful. Love the soft tone and composition.

So cool, Marilyn!
A lovely composition.
You have such talent.

So pretty! I love that bowl and all of the texture in the sea shells. The linen background is wonderful too!

Love the monochromatic look and feel of this image that lets me focus on the shapes and texture of the shells. Great styling. I've never been to an Anthropology store, but I've got a trip to one on my wish list, for sure!

Beautiful, Marilyn! It would be fun to play with some textures on this, but I agree, simply lovely without!

Lovely image, the shells contrast so wonderfully with the texture of the wood ! Love your bowl too :)

Beautiful! I'm starting to use Lightroom more and more too. It's so much quicker than dragging everything over into photoshop!

Seashells! One of my favorites and beautifully done! Yes, I'm in love with LR, too. And I am addicted to presets. You're right, often times that's all that's needed.
