Ah, that Prince can write (and play) a tune, can't he? Topaz Adjust 5 can make an image sing too. Nothing wrong with the original image, such brilliant colors. But by hitting this image with the Gritty II preset, I feel it much more emphasizes the gorgeous shapes, circles of course, in this rolling piece of artwork. In the original, the red overwhelms me and I miss all the beautiful detail in the gauges.
Your thoughts? As always, the original version is on the Continue link.
Caren is right (link to yesterday's post), but there is more than one way to remember this glorious sunset. How about a cruise with me? Come along, it will be fun. Being on the water is even better than being next to it. I never feel as good as when I'm on a boat.
A sunset cocktail? Sure, that is traditional. Margarita's are traditional here in Mexico. Sound good?
I am endlessly fascinated when flying over the Earth. More so when I know what is below. Flying north from Ixtapa, once I hit the California border I knew the landscape all the way up to Seattle.
And it was a kick to fly over Yosemite, which I have done many times. Photographer's mecca. Probably some down there at that moment. See half dome there in the upper right?
Pictures through the plastic/glass windows and 6 miles of atmosphere often dissappoint however. The original of this is very hazy and blue-toned. I thought maybe Topaz Adjust 5 could cut through that and gives us a clearer view. Took a lot of preset tries however. I ended up with Grunge II, and a couple of subtle slider adjustments. But cut through it did!
See the original on the continue link and you'll see what I mean.
