The other day I was asked if I wanted to try a new piece of software that uses AI to edit the photo so that you don't have to do anything. The exposure, colours, etc are all sorted for you. You load a photo and the software does everything for you.

The same subject but two different ways of editing. The first is using Adobe Lightroom to create a photo and the second is using Macphun. 

This is a quick edit to give you an idea as to what can be achieved using two different ways of editing. 

The Aurora HDR finished edit is on the left and the Lightroom is on the right, which one do you prefer?
