RAW Conversion In Lightroom

My first step is converting the image from RAW to Tiff format. I currently use Lightroom for this part of my workflow, but other converters can work just as well. In fact I use different RAW converters for the conversion of other types of photographs. My choice of RAW converter is based on the needs of each photograph.

Below are screenshots ofthe adjustment settings I made to the image. For each setting I provide a before and an after screen-shot. The image these settings were applied to is the one presented at the beginning of this chapter: Saguaros Blur.
