Surprising Results from iPhoto

I am traveling and I have been taking photos. When I get home I will have 100-200 photos to process in Lightroom, but I wanted to get a few photos posted right away. I have iPhoto on my laptop, so I used that to process my photos. Since I take photos in RAW with my Nikon D7000, they really do need some processing before I post them. When I first looked at this photo the sky was completely washed out. Using the highlights slider in iPhoto adjustments I was able to bring the detail back in the sky.  I think it adds a lot to the photo.
