Is a Lightroom HDR "Effect", Really HDR?

I posted a smaller version of this to my Google+ page yesterday but the comments got me thinking more about the topic. So I figured I’d write about it here since, well, the post-processing involved in what you’re about to read was done in Lightroom. So here’s the story I saw this post the other day on 500px (link: http://500px.com/photo/8023755) and it got me wondering. The photographer, Jose Barbosa (who’s...

Lightroom Tip – Resetting Sliders The Quick Way

Here’s one of those tips that, truth be told, I tend to forget about. But then, every time I use it I’m like “Crap! I’ve got to use that more”. Here’s an example.
