It’s time for a little summer fun…too bad it feels more like fall outside.
An old shot that I’ve reprocessed in Photomatix Pro 4.2 (great little upgrade there, many nice enhancements) and Lightroom 4. I was never happy with the original processing but this is much closer to what I had in mind when I sat on the rainy corner early on Thanksgiving a few years ago.
Quick sidebar tip – if you were a Lightroom 2 or 3 user and you shied away from using the contrast slider because it was about as subtle as a sledghammer, try it in Lightroom 4. Much, much better. It’s not just useful, it’s good.
I guess I have a thing for oceans, beaches and piers. Not uncommon I guess, that’s a pretty typical type of picture. Common or not there is just something almost mystical about an empty pier stretching out into the vast unknown.
That or I just like an excuse to go see a nice sunrise.
This shot was taken last year as part of Rick Sammon’s Florida Photo Caravan. I’ve mentioned it before but if you get a chance to take a class with Rick, it’s a great opportunity. I don’t get paid for that endorsement (though hey Rick feel free lol).
I woke up to snow drifting down this morning. It’s April! Snow? My colleagues at work laughed and said welcome to Canada. Why did I move again?
So today it’s a little more beach dreaming. Sunrise at Cocoa Beach was my ..ok one of my… favorite ways to start a weekend. There is just something magical about a morning sky and the sound of the ocean. Oh well, that’s what vacations are for.
