Pa’i ki’i Imagery

Nose to Nose

In an effort to find an alternative to LightRoom (I don’t want to pay a monthly fee to use it. I prefer a Perpetual License.), I’ve been looking at other programs.This pic I developed with the latest version from ON1. I liked the ease of using the Develop section.  The different options available to develop a photo are straight forward and show fairly quickly in the preview. Plus there are plenty of presets you can play with to get inspiration.  I’m still learning the ins and outs of the program.

The one negative occurred when I exported this image.  First it took forever and a day to actually export.  When it did the bottom portion up to the bush was cut off. Eventually I changed the photo size to just the long edge and the image came out as you see it.  Also during the export process the program hung up on me and I had to wait for it to work again.  If you force close it the history for the image is lost.

How’s your Memorial Weekend going? On Saturday I helped some of my hang gliding friends launch from Kamehame Ridge. You’ll find pics of that at my Smugmug site.
On my way home I stopped at Sandy Beach to visit with a friend and fly his kite. Meanwhile the participants of the DJ Johnson 3-Day Round the Island Races Sailing Regatta went by. I sailed with my father as a boy and it was impressive how close these large sail boats tacked to the shore.

The lead boat in this picture started tacking towards us a few minutes later. The boat came within one hundred yards of the shore before turning out into the channel.
