I'm a bit behind. I headed out on vacation on 1/23 to Oahu Hawaii, had a great time, and took 1500 photos (most aren't worthy of space on the memory card) Swung by Los Angeles to visit family on the way home, and took a bunch more photos! I arrived back home last Tuesday and immediately got slammed with a bunch of overtime at work... so much for the restful and relaxing vacation.

I'm going to post a couple of entries that aren't my declared subject matter of Beautiful Del Norte County, but I'm guessing people won't mind.

Week 4: Oahu emerging from the clouds as we arrived by plane.

Cleaning up my laptop because its really overloaded, sooo I found this gem
This was right before winter!
We only see Pelicans 2x a year for when they migrate. One of our local nature lands holds it as their breeding grounds, really fun when you can see 100 at a time
This one I caught in flight, one of my goals, to capture one eating a fish

Hi gang. I've fallen behind, not because of the Mardi Gras
revelry but due to a nasty viral bronchitis. Anyway, doing better now and
have picked up the camera to take a shot of my hat and beads that I hope
to be wearing next year on the parade route. :)

Any suggestions for different composition or post processing are greatly appreciated.

I pretty much like the composition, but to me it cries out for a more dramatic (if unrealistic) sky. I did a really quick edit ... first I wanted to create a mask for the sky area. If you check out the Channels individually, you'll find that the sky is almost flat in the Red channel.

'
Magic Wand selection or two with a fairly high tolerance setting (plus the Select > Similar command) makes a substantial selection; the fine details can be touched-up using the painting/erasing tools on the mask layer; I didn't in this case so many of the edges will be a bit "off".

Once the selection was made, I loaded it and created a Curves Adjustment Layer in which I darkened it overall (RGB Channel) and also pushed the Yellow (Blue Channel) a bit.

Once that was done I cropped a little off the bottom -- I like "points of contrast" (road and water in this case) to meet at the corner, but I didn't do any other adjusting.

' I resized this before posting -- I notice your full-sized image must have had a lot of compression applied as the file was under 700KB, and it seemed a bit blurry and had some banding in the sky.

February, Week 4

Long story short - had a contact Thursday asking if I had any photos taken on Farnam Street here. Inquiry came from one of those consulting firms that had a client who wanted to decorate a conference room with photos from that locale. I didn't. So . . . Friday was nice here and husband and I decided to go out. Lots of stops and a lovely lunch (except that our waiter forgot about us - literally! - for about 20 minutes) later, I had some. Worked all weekend to process the ones I thought might work. Now I'm hoping to make a sale or two :) This one took forever to edit, but I'm happy to have it in my portfolio.

RE-did sky and upped contrast.

' Battery Point Lighthouse in Crescent City CA. The lighthouse becomes completely surrounded by the ocean at anything but low tide.

Any suggestions for different composition or post processing are greatly appreciated.

I pretty much like the composition, but to me it cries out for a more dramatic (if unrealistic) sky. I did a really quick edit ... first I wanted to create a mask for the sky area. If you check out the Channels individually, you'll find that the sky is almost flat in the Red channel.

'
Magic Wand selection or two with a fairly high tolerance setting (plus the Select > Similar command) makes a substantial selection; the fine details can be touched-up using the painting/erasing tools on the mask layer; I didn't in this case so many of the edges will be a bit "off".

Once the selection was made, I loaded it and created a Curves Adjustment Layer in which I darkened it overall (RGB Channel) and also pushed the Yellow (Blue Channel) a bit. ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/0-4999/1031/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1142732.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/0-4999/1031/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1142732.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Once that was done I cropped a little off the bottom -- I like "points of contrast" (road and water in this case) to meet at the corner, but I didn't do any other adjusting.

' I resized this before posting -- I notice your full-sized image must have had a lot of compression applied as the file was under 700KB, and it seemed a bit blurry and had some banding in the sky. For future such experiments I suggest uploading a smaller image (e.g. 25% original size) at the best-quality setting, or else upload the original with minimal compression and delete or replace it with a smaller file later if you are short of portfolio space.


Wow, that is much improved! Thank you for your edits and the screen prints of how you did them! I have been working at post processing skills, watching videos and toiling away in Lightroom. I think it is time to jump into Photoshop as I can't do what I want w/ Lightroom. I also tried NIK and Topaz, for their free trial period, but really only frustrated myself, as each software package seems to require hours of practice before you get any usable benefit. As usual, too many interests and not enough hours to pursue them all!

You're welcome -- I guess I still subscribe to the site' original mission ...
