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...


-WOW- Nice one.

I've been up to my elbows in alligators that past couple of weeks getting ready for a last elk hunt with my oldest son before he leaves for med school. Unfortunately, the hunt got canceled when he came down with a serious case of the flu and had to be hospitalized. With some unexpected time to fill while I'm waiting for my son to repair, I've been rolling through one amazing page of MA2A images after an other.





To fill the void that would have been travel today, I've been working on the images for my upcoming Southwest Aviation Review article on the F-35B. Accordingly, I offer one last teaser photograph before my article comes out next week (keeping fingers crossed). Sometimes I like backlit images
DOUBLE WOW...Nice.

Have to say that some amazing photos have come by in the past pages! Unfortunately I haven't had a lot of time to reply or do much else, but I am still a big lurker! So watch out, I'm reading everything

Last week I was finally able to finish editing a small movie I shot this spring when I went gliding at Portmoak in Scotland with a lot of university gliding clubs. For me it was the first time flying on a ridge, only having flown thermals before, and I had a blast!

Click here for the movie!

I thought I recognised the Loch with island - I've never been to Port Moak (and didn't recognise the name) but my father-in-law and I had plenty of trout out of Loch Leven when I was younger!
Niall
Great video, by the way - what's the square meter in one of the sailplanes?

Jay,

any advice on how you are doing this. At the moment I have imported everything into my main LR catalogue and it is a bit messy.

Perhaps too perfect a capture of a crossing shot. I didn't even realize I had it when looking through the pictures in the sorter except for "a plane with a tail at both ends? What the heck?"

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.

You're right, I should look into that - I work a short walk away.

Mac question: since I use two monitors for my main editing setup and I already own a 30" Apple Cinema Display, is there any reason I would benefit from waiting for the larger of the new iMac offerings? Is the iMac's native screen better or faster than the ACD?

Am I better off buying one with minimum RAM and stuffing it with 3rd party SIMMs? I remember some discussion on the subject, but can't find it.

I loved everything about that video, Jurgen, not least the chance to vicariously experience a winch launch. We don't do enough of that here in the USA: most clubs can't muster the manpower to properly staff a winch operation, and commercial operators won't touch it.

Nice two-handed technique at 100 knots right down on the ridge top, by the way!

Jurgen,
that is a great movie - looks like you had a lot of fun. Were you flying solo?

Nice movie Jurgen. The mid-flight reconfiguration of the panel confused me for a moment! I like the view from the ridge. I've tried to tried to make movies of my flying, but flying high above the mountains isn't nearly as nice to view as flying along the ridge.

Hi Zim,

Don't ever buy Apple Ram. I just configured my new 27" on the Apple site, 32 GB Apple RAM $600 v. the same in Kingston at $264. Re: monitor question. I love my 30" Cinema, but it's five years old and is going to get retired, along with my dual quad MacPro Tower. The display on my iMac at HQ is decidedly better than my 30", and these new ones are supposed to be much better than the current versions.

I'm reconfiguring for all iMacs, with Thunderbolt 20TB Drobo 5D's attached. I have a little more beta testing to do at HQ with the new Drobo, but I think that combo will save me a ton of open/tweak/save time. I'm very pleased so far, but I am not seeing the 25X speeds that are quoted for Thunderbolt over USB 2.0. I'd say the speed is about four times faster + -, which is still a big jump. Don't know what kind of a bump the SSD addition to the 5D would give me, if any.

Glenn & Lady Jo,

Early fog not withstanding, I should be in AUS around 9 am. I'll head to The Texas State Cemetery on 7th Street to scout the site for correct lighting. I have two locations there to shoot, should be a no brainer if they don't face North. You Guys around tomorrow?
