We switched coasts today. Here is a photo of our Miami Beach hotel taken from the boardwalk with my iPhone:

I took it into Lightroom. Fixed the alignment of the building. Whitened it, but brought out the beautiful warm sunset light on the north elevation. And I took the greenery in the foreground out of the shadows.
