  • If you shoot with wide open f'stop you can throw the background out of focus, and a relatively slow shutter speed(in relation to speed of aircraft) you can bluer the background as well.  gc
  • Your camera should have a setting for shooting rapid fire sequences of moving objects in the menu.  GC
  • I would go out and reshoot and pan with the plane with the background out of focus.  Just don't stop the panning when you push the shutter button.  It might help to practice that move first.  The ...
  • Nice, Patsy.  gc
  • Replied in Sycamore Tree
    Understood.  It might have been better if it had been shot on a cloudy bright day, that way the whites would not be overcome by bright white skies and partial sunlight.  We have two Sycamores on ...
  • Replied in Sycamore Tree
    Lifted shadows in ACR, opened in PS and ran contrast mask and Apply Image to bring out colors.  gc
  • Reduced glare in ACR with dehaze and highlights.  Used Apply Image for color adjustment, and contrast mask for sketch.  gc
  • Replied in Maui sunset
    Strange, my comment just under your post has been erased.  Again, a great capture.  gc
  • Commented on photo The dead tree on Maaalea beach in Te0's photo gallery

    A beautiful capture. Thanks for posting. gc

  • Replied in Sycamore Tree
    Love Sycamore trees, especially in the fall in Chicago, but they can sure mess up the green on a golf course.  gc
  • Replied in Global Warming
    I saw that too, which is my point.  We are back to what it was like before Covid.  I do not believe we can change human behavior fast enough to do anything but slightly dent the pollution.  We ...
  • Replied in Global Warming
    I'm not passing on anything to future generations by saying there is not much anyone can do because it's true.  If we stopped doing right now, what folks say is causing the problem, we would still ...

  • Replied in Global Warming
    I thought so too, re the title.  It looks just like an image from the fifties across Texas in the fifties, which I remember as much hotter than it is now.  What this shows is that the maintenance ...
  • Replied in 89 years Old
    Looking fine for 89.  You captured her nicely.  gc
  • Excellent work.  Thanks for posting.  gc
  • That tool has been around since Methuselah was a corporal.  It works fairly well, depending on the file.  The custom filter works great too, but it takes some playing with it.  I don't remember ...
  • When I open in Adobe camera raw, it looks the same as yours.  Good luck with that monitor.  gc
  • Do you make any edits when opened in either of those apps.  I only use Adobe Camera Raw, and it looks exactly like what you show.  However, if I click on the white hear the top and the white just ...
  • Something seems wrong with both apps.  Could it be that the upgrade to 11 changed some parameters.? Without ANY editing, what does the original look like when first viewed in your apps? or when ...
