Hi Steven,

I think Apple was a tad optimistic on release dates. The smaller version said "November" and there's no sign of them so far. The 27" said December, so they have a month to make good on that. They do look pretty cool.


Jim,

The 21" iMacs went on sale yesterday. Apple just made their deadline.

Someone needs to offer a Thunderbolt card reader. Man that would speed things up at the end of a day.

You did the impossible, making that plane look good. Great work Jeff

Thanks Vance. Here is a blended monochrome version that I thought turned out well.

Jan, SteveZ, Chris, & Niall - Thanks for the positive encouragement, you are too kind.

I actually processed this image two different ways in SEP2 (1 emphasizing structure & 1 emphasizing tone) and then blended them in CS6. Once I was happy with the blended monochrome, I took the image into CEP4 and used the "Midnight" filter on it to give the image some serious dark glow. After the "Midnight" treatment, I changed the CEP4 layer from "Normal" to "Overlay" and reduced the opacity to 15%. I also did some dodging and burning in CS6 to help blend the various post processing techniques to my taste.

Combine my post processing work with the unexpected magical back lighting in the afternoon and I got a much better image than I had originally envisioned. While I'd like to say I deftly pre-visualize every image before I trip the shutter, it don't always happen that way for me kids. It is nice to get a surprise like this once in a while. I guess I shouldn't be so quick to give up on an marginal image

CEP4: whazzat? Color Efex Pro? You mean I have to buy another piece of third-party software just to keep up?

Wow, Mark
, I never thought that We would ever see a beam of light stopped. I wont go into the cheetahs, as I am a cat person and anything that shows cheetahs moving like that is worth every second of viewing. Bet it would be fun, to attend one of those lectures at MIT.

I bought Silver EfexPro first and then liked it so much that I bought the rest of the suite Colour Rfex, Viveza (both of which I use a lot) Define (which I use occasionally to remove noise) and Sharpener Pro, thus spending about four times what I would have spent if I'd bought them as a single set!!! The only one I use is very little is the sharpener - CS6 sharpening tools are as good as if not better than the Nik Output Sharpener (IMHO) and I have yet to work out how you access the RAW presharpener from within CS6 RAW palette!!

I agree Niall. The Sharpener Pro proved to be of very little value to me.

Thank you Jim.

Like you and Niall, I don't use the Nik sharpening plug-in tool. While I agree that the sharpening tools in LR4 and CS6 are tremendous, I use a plug-in called "PhotoKit Sharpener 2.0" that comes from the PixelGenius group. PixelGenius is a small company of photographers and IT folks that create post processing products for the photographic industry. They've been alpha/beta testers and advisors to Adobe for many years. Their software simply automates the sharpening tools within LR4/CS6 to help make your workflow more efficient. You should download their trial version and give it a try - you may find it helpful.

9+ hours without a post...well that's too long...







You guys are slackin'!

Not sure I know how to ask this, but I have two questions about Nik SW. Does it matter Google bought them? Second, I do most of my work in LR, but that is changing. Is NIk for LR satisfactory, or do you need the suite for PS CS6?

The thoughts of the people over at the Naturescapes.net forums think that unless somebody buys the Nik plugins back from Google, they are not going to last long. Google did not buy Nik for plugins, they bought it for Snapseed, plain and simple.

Nicely Done Jeff. It definitely has a "rendered" feel to it.

Reconstructing some LR catalogs and overhauled this from 2009 outside Nellis...
