Actually the paraglider in the foreground is practicing.  The other paraglider just landed and is walking up the landing zone to move out of the way in case someone is landing behind him.

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.

Clear Sky Sunset

We’ve had a lot of days the past couple of months with northerly trades bringing in dryer air.  Makes for almost cloudless sunsets.  Of course having some clouds can add interesting color and shadow to the sunset. Not on this particular occasion.

Low Tide Sunset

It’s useful to go back to previous years pictures and take another pass thru what images you’ve kept.  In the days after I’ve taken pictures, I’ll get rid of the obviously bad ones.  I’ll find the one or two images  I definitely want to post here or elsewhere and move on.  Now I’m going back again and further culling what I don’t want to save for various reasons.  Plus I’ll take a little more time to study what I’ve got left.  Here’s an image I cropped down from the wide angle shot I’d originally made. It makes the setting sun, the back side of Diamond Head and the family walking back to the nearby beach more prominent.  The family adds a sense of proportion and movement and makes for a more compelling picture.

Happy Old Year

Time to sing the old year out and Start Anew! It’s a clean slate to write on or fresh paper to print with an interesting photo. Be well.

Up and Over

It’s been awhile since I created a sequence image.  I saw the possibility as he was going into the maneuver. It would’ve been a more complete image, if I’d seen it a little sooner.

Peek a Boo

I didn’t realize it had been so long since my last post. The aging PC I use to process my shots had been giving me fits. It hadn’t kept me from image making but processing them became an adventure.  After various efforts to keep it going, I finally decided to replace it by building my own.  The new one is up and running smoothly.  Here’s a shot from today.  A friend of mine was giving a Tandem ride on his paraglider. His passenger is just appearing beneath the wing as they complete an aerial maneuver. In case you’re wondering, they are horizontal.
