Uncle Jesse Revisit

I'm not much for a repost but I'm obsessed with this bracket series. I have about 10 versions of it but the blurry version is naturally my favorite. I'm starting to get the hang of Perfect Layers (how did I ever get by without layer masking?!) and was able to add several effects this time (I really dislike my original post of this frame, although it somehow has more views than any of my other shots haha). This was taken about 2 months ago on the same day as my last post. I sat at the Rogue Ale House for a good hour to recharge the ol' batteries and headed to Baker Beach. The cab dropped me off right at the beach but the light was boring and I didn't feel like walking by a bunch of naked dudes near the rocks closest to the bridge so I got on a trail and went up Lincoln a bit. I saw some bunkers and started getting excited. I kept going a few hundred more yards and stumbled upon a tagged bunker in the middle of a Cypress grove--I was ecstatic. I took a ton www.flickr.com/photos/markfuzz/5527569835/in/photostream inside and out www.flickr.com/photos/markfuzz/5543188768/in/photostream/ but kept going. When I came up on this I let out a Johnny Drama, "Victory!!!" and fired away. Needless to say I'll be back here for a sunset but I just hope no one alters these tags.

 

Photomatix 4.0 > Lightroom 3 > Color Efex Pro for several filters > Focal Point 2 because I can't stay away from it > Perfect Layers to keep as much detail as possible within my area of focus > Lightroom for finishing touches

Thanks for looking! I've been entertaining for about 4 weeks solid (between visitors and the Kentucky Derby) so I'm going to be in bed for the next 3 days editing pictures and watching the same Seinfelds over and over...and I can't wait! Happy Friday!
