Lightroom Before/After Video – Eiffel Tower and Plug-ins

I haven’t done one of those Before/After videos in a while so I thought it was time for another. The photo I’m using here was a photo I took in Paris last year. It was a rainy day which I actually find can help sometimes. I’d always seen a lot of the same photos of the Eiffel Tower, so I went looking for a different view. I remember seeing the movie, Inception, and noticed this really cool bridge (You know, the one that twisted on top of itself in the movie). It was the Pont de Bir-Hakeim, a bridge that crosses the Seine River in Paris. So I kinda set my sites on that being a good location to shoot from. The original photo itself definitely needed some work, as you’ll see in the video. The Lightroom part of it was pretty easy actually and since Lightroom 4 Beta has been out, I find myself re-editing a lot of my photos using the new Develop module controls. There’s a little Photoshop touchup work and lots of plug-in work that I used too. Enjoy!
