Interesting tutorial. Just curious why you didn't do it non destructively?  I mean you used lots of adjustments but not in layers.  The way you've done the edit there is no way to go back and make any changes if you wanted.

Honestly, typically how I edit. I realized that and in my more recent videos I do it non destructive so it does not confuse anyone.

Went to Oceanside for a few days.  Here are a couple shots I took while we were there.  It was good to be back by the ocean again.  I really miss the onshore breeze.

In an attempt to lighten my camera gear load I picked up a NEX 5R and fitted it with a Tamron 18-250 lens.  Manual focus and a fixed f-stop of 3.5 I think it is a great set up.  With the Panorama mode I don't really need a wide angle lens and I've noticed that if I pan up the camera corrects the perspective in camera so that works for me.  I think that the image quality is as good if not better than my 40D.  I've gone to a different extreme I now carry a P&S for macro shots as well as back up sound bite camera.  I've also added a GoPro Hero 2 to my bag for some time lapse stuff and my bag is much lighter than my 5Dii and three lenses.  I've gotten down to the 18-250 and the kit 18-50 for some better f-stop control if needed.  I really like the NEX 5R fitted with an EVF and a Canon to Sony lens adapter.  I like good quality photos even though I'm just a hobby photographer with some pro experience.  Good article by the way.

I've gone to the extreme with mine and got a follow focus for it.  I've also gotten a hot shoe adapter so that I can use my pocket wizards or my 430EX-II on it if I want.  So I'm set up to do video with it and my 5D ii with mic's and recorders.  Never thought I'd get into video but now I am.

Back to goofing around with my GoPro Hero 2. Time sequence photo every 5 seconds  1186 photos.  Edited in LR 4.  It was hard not to get the balcony railing from showing in the photo and if  you look closely you'll see that I really didn't succeed but it was fun making time lapse video again.

Oceanside Pier in the morning just before sunrise.  Blue hour.
I've been playing around with some PS techniques.  Here I added a layer of High Pass and Smart Sharpen to this photo.  Aside from ht bw light halo I sort of like it.

The photos may be peaceful.  The house photo I was in a swarm of mosquitoes and standing in a flock of very unhappy geese.  It  was fun.  Nice sunrise.

Getting into image manipulation so here's what I sort of started out with.  I keep seeing lots of different stuff in this photo so I highlighted it just for fun.

I sort of like this piece of wood.  It offers me a challenge to try some experimenting with some layers and so forth.  Again I used the quick selection tool and made several different layers.  ONe included the wood and several rocks, which I made a layer and then used multiply as a layer selection to darken the colour.  I made two separate selections of the piece of wood making the end a selection unto itself.  The whole piece of wood has several layer selections of, contrast, hue/saturation and a curves layer.  The end piece I used a brightness and contrast layer to darken it a bit more.  A little dodge and burn on the piece of wood itself.  I also inverted the wood/rock selection and changed the layer mode to overlay then added a layer of curves, adjusting the red, green and blue separately.  Et Voila the before and after photo presented here.  I also threw in a bit of frequency separation technique to add some texture to the wood and dirt.  This is the final result.

Dennis Larson Nicht veil arbite aber viel spass. I've been attempting to work on my PS techniques. I probably used more layers than necessary but I was interested in how much I could adjust the different pieces in the photo. If you hadn't seen the after photo you'd probably think the photo was only slightly adjusted and that is my intent.

A little about me.
Introduction
Sometime portrait photographer and want to be traveler.  I dabble a little in blogging about my photo and travel experiences.  I try to help people with what I have learned so they don't have the same not so great experience.  I've been a Canon user for many years.  When I went digital I started with a Rebel Xt and then went through the Rebel series and ended up a Canon 5D MK II.  I now shoot mainly with a Fuji X- E2 and my backup camera is a Fuji X-20. I switched systems after I had a bout with cancer.  Carrying my Canon gear about was getting to heavy for me to carry.  My camera bag was 25+ lbs and the Fuji is about four pounds.  My happy place is behind the camera, or lately on the computer manipulating photos.  I like taking portraits best but enjoy landscape photography especially in Ghost towns. I've been experimenting with Vertorama photos so I've sort of gotten away from shooting portraits.  I've also been working on my PS skills and now include photo manipulator to my photo skills.
I really need to get a more powerful computer because the Vertorama photos can tax my MacBook Pro.  Even with small 12 mp photos it takes several hours to process 30 photos into one composite.

I spent several weeks in Rothenburg and found that this place has some very good selections of wine and schnapps. The people there were very helpful and speak several languages. The Hotel's location is very good. Rothenburg is small so it is easy to navigate. Plönlein is literally right across the street. The Doll and Toy museum is maybe a hundred meters away on Kobolzeller Steige. The museum is well worth the visit. There are many interesting places to see that are within five minutes walking distance in any direction.
