Lightroom Practice

Updated LR ROM Pic (2 of 1)

Lightroom practice. Properly ran it through LR this time using my own B&W preset which I created for use with portraits. Did some minor spot clarity adjustments on the windows and ROM sign to make them clearer. Proper cropping this time. I think it looks a little straighter.

I did a bunch of LR tutorials and guess what? I have a bad memory. Or at the very least I need to keep this information on hand so I can refer to it when I need it, which is not unexpected at this stage of the game.

Nikon D3400 – F-stop: f/5.6 – Exposure time: 1/30 sec – ISO: 6400 – Focal length: 29mm – Max aperture: 4.1

Patria – Toronto – October 24, 2016

Classic Spanish cuisine (from tapas to paella), wine & cocktails served in a stylish, airy setting.

Address: 478 King St W, Toronto, ON M5V 1L7

Website: http://patriatoronto.com/

Google rating: 4.3 out of 5 stars. I actually think it is better than this rating indicates. The atmosphere is outstanding and the food is very tasty. It’s a bit more of an upscale tapas experience than Barsa Taberna (which is also quite good). I’d give it a 4.7 out of 5 stars.
