considering that i am still in the 'trial period' for lightroom 5 (meaning i have had it less than 30 days), i have tons to learn about the program. i hardly know where to begin. i have been watching tutorials and such online, and have learned a few tricks of the trade, but still can't seem to get my pictures to pop. i purchased the jamesb lightroom preset package and have been using it non-stop. i know this is cheating, but cut me some slack, i'll learn more as i go. i used his presets while editing pictures from my family's vacation in park city last week, and they really gave them the looks that i wanted. i highly recommend purchasing the set.
