Here is a foggy one from fort point on the 20th anniversary of photoshop. I am using a trial version of Silver Effects Pro to see how I like it. And I do.

The Lone Sailor at the north viewpoint overlooking the Golden Gate bridge. I did some post on this one. Did a smart-object and then made a copy to get some details in the shadows. Used mostly tools in Camera Raw.

Here is one from Thursday at Fort Point under the Golden Gate Bridge. We were in San Francisco for Photoshop’s 20th Anniversary Party. It was cool to see the Photoshop Guys, Joe McNally and other recognizable industry figures.

Fort Bragg in August. It is a nice place to be especially when you spend most of your summer in Redding, CA. Redding just gets too down right hot at times and you need a break. We’ve found a nice break to take is the Art in the Gardens at the Mendocino Coastal Botanical Gardens in Fort Bragg. This was our second year attending. Last year worked out better and hopefully next year will turn around.
They stuck us in a second row and there was not a well defined walk-way between us the others in front of us. Next year we WILL have a different set-up.
We we able to rent a house for 5 nights this year and only eat out once. Silver’s by the Bay or something like that. The place is in Noyo Harbor and is a decent place to eat.
Took this shot at sundown obviously. Everyone with cameras were getting out of their seats to take snaps by the windows. We had a window table and I took this photo with the P&S. Thought it turned out well considering.
