I recently began using Lightroom, and am having fun learning its somewhat different approach to working with photos (as opposed to the Photoshop workflow I’ve used for years). The organizational capabilities alone make it worthwhile if you have a large collection of photos. I took these  shots in Yosemite a year or two ago with a pretty basic camera (my Nikon D3200 with the kit lens). The panoramas were taken as several individual overlapping photos that I then merged together. Simply having a wider field of view and more pixels to work with really helps capture the expansive beauty of landscapes like this. The last shot is an HDR image, which gave me the opportunity to test Lightroom’s HDR photo merge capabilities. I’m impressed.
