Before & After #26

I'm changing things up just a bit today. I know I could very easily just edit all of my RAW files in lightroom and be quite happy with the outcome of never even opening photoshop. But I can't leave well enough alone and I find myself opening every single photo in photoshop to add an additional hint of Rebecca flavor. So today I wanted to show you what the photo looks like SOOC (straight out of camera), the edit once complete in Lightroom 3, and then the final image once tweaked with Photoshop CS3.

I'd love to know if you prefer seeing the before & afters like this or just the SOOC & final image like before!
