Last time I went to Niagara Falls I managed to get a better angle on the falls. I reached “Rock Bottom” for some good photography.

Final Thoughts

At first I was annoyed by the tourists in this photo, but I realize now it helps give scale to this photo of the falls.

The great thing about Lightroom is you can use a magic wand, and convert more photos in the same way…
