    #1 turned out well, I was really glad I had the chance to capture it. My Ltds are all the older SMC coating.

    Thanks, I am glad you liked the Zion shots and thank you for taking a look in my galleries! I typically perform some level of PP, mainly with shadows, highlights, contrast and clarity. I sometimes ...

    Thanks, I was very pleased with #1. I only got it by chance. The place we stayed at in Springfield (near the entrance to Zion) had an observation platform on the hillside out the back of the ...

    Thank, I really like Zion, there are many photo ops there. I hope to get back a few more times.

    Thanks for the tips! I had done some similar removals in the past, but had recently switch over to Capture One and wasn't sure of the tool. I just tried and it turned out to be a pretty easy job. ...

    Thanks for your comment. I was just glad I had the opportunity to capture the scene, the light only lasted for a few minutes.

  • Very nice set, you captured the morning light beautifully!

  • I ran the Aperture Import against a copy of my main Aperture library of 64k+ images. It ran for about 8 hours on a Mac Mini 2.6 i7 with 4 processors and 16G RAM. For anyone that tries this, it ...
  • I can't speak to the other two services, but I have been using zenfolio for a number of years and have been very happy. I very much like the styles/color schemes they offer for galleries, very nice ...
  • I work with new images on my local drive, once I am done editing them I move them to an external drive. I have a second external drive that is a duplicate of the primary external drive. I use ...
  • Replied in Boston
    Since you are heading up to New Hampshire and Maine, I do have a couple of shooting guides from my prior trips there that may be of use and my apologies if you have come across these already. For ...
  • Replied in Boston
    As Kent says, the drivers in Boston can be pretty inconsiderate of fellow drivers, but Boston does have  a good subway system and much of Boston is very walkable. There are also plenty of Duck and ...
