                Lightroom is great as long as you don't want to do anything to change the picture too much from the original If you wanted to remove the tree, for example, Lightroom would be of no use, you'd need Photoshop

                    In which case, its highly unlikely you'd shoot anything as monolithic as the tree if it was ruining your picture *that* much... unless you're some sort of photoshop sadist.

                      You're right, but it served as a good example (and I have been known to edit entire trees out of the background of a shot, as well as buildings, people, clouds, etc.)

                            I'm not normally a fan of removing stuff from photo's, the bird in this case I can justify, but stuff as big as trees LOL I should have taken the photo form a different spot!

                              Ahh, but what if everything else in the shot is perfect, with the exception of a rogue tree? (or street-lamp, when shooting 1940s era vehicles on a 1940s era street with a 1980s era lamp-post)

                              Digital photography is a wonderful tool, you can take a photograph that isn't perfect and make it perfect.
