I got numerous praises for what I did with the "golden gate bridge turns 75."


But, it was not perfect from many angles. I was not happy with the chromatic aberration. One on the rocks at the bottom left and on the left side of the bridge.


There were more problems that I knew when I posted it the first time. The biggest headache I had was the breaking up of the steel cable at the end of the bridge and both steel beams were crooked. These were caused by HDR processing using Photomatix.


So, I decided to rework this great image of the Golden Gate Bridge of San Francisco.


Also, I am revealing that the clouds were just added to the original 5 exposures to make it more dramatic. That was the toughest job on this one.


If you open both versions in different windows, then, you can compare them and see what I did with this latest offering.


This Golden Gate Project is included in my upcoming book, HDR UNLEASHED, which will be available in July. I will show you how I managed to produce this HDR.


Thank you for your eternal support.

American Copper(Lycaena phlaeas).


The American copper butterfly, especially the males, are by far the most active of all butterflies! It is cute how they tend to chase away anything (including shadows) that comes in way or around its territory.


Catching a glimpse of this butterfly will bring a smile to your face and remind you why these creatures are lovely and captivating.


On Saturday night I hit up the Hancock Observatory or 360Chicago, whichever you prefer with Matt Frankel. I went in with hopes of a low hanging fog looming under the city, but as you can see that didn't happen. We did however manage to catch a great sunset. One of the best I've ever seen.

Kiwi_GaL.....or Natalia as we know & love her....asked me to try her Sweet Treats Lightroom Presets & Photoshop Actions... :)

I've been having so much fun with them!...

They do make it so much easier and faster to change colours...


For this one I used;

Sweet Treats 'Peaches & Cream' Lightroom Preset

Sweet Treats 'Light Boost' Photoshop Action


To boost the contrast I did a duplicate copy layer of the photo, set to 'overlay'....and lowered the opacity...

Played just a little with brightness and contrast...

and VOILA!


what a difference!
