A blog about photography, reading, the San Jose Sharks, and anything else that comes to mind.
I've been holding on to this shot for a while now. I showed it earlier on Google+ but delayed putting it up here. I felt I could do more, and less, in my post processing. I like the layers in this early morning shot; sun light only hitting parts of the foreground hills, the fog receding, and the curves of the hills. It was a tough scene dynamically to capture.
The shot is an HDR to better grab the shadow areas of the photo.
It should be no surprise that I took some bracket shots of the waterfalls from the other day. I'm not so happy with the HDR shots as I was with the normal shots, which for me is a little strange, but I think the blame goes on me, I rushed the shots. Note to self, and other photographers, don't go to a shoot with someone who's not a photographer, you'll end up feeling rushed even if they're in the car chatting happily on the phone oblivious to your shooting.
Monday, as just about everyone knows, Apple gave a peek at a couple of its updates in the operating systems arena, both mobile and desktop. Most people knew what to expect in the first half, OS X Lion is coming in July. And although I knew what most of the updated stuff was going to be I still found myself wanting to update right then and there. I mean why wouldn't you? It's $30, and I don't have to run down to a store to get it. Actually, I couldn't if I wanted to, but that's another story. But it's the second half of the presentation that was more, interesting, if you're an iOS person.
