If you are into doing HDR photography then make sure to get the latest version of the Photomatix software. They just released version 5.0 and it has some nice new features and great improvements in image quality. I was really struggling with prior version of the software on the following image, it looked like crap, no matter what I tried to do with it. With new version they have a new mode, they call it “Balanced” and it really makes some wonders. I was much happier with how it turned out on this photo.
In Pacific Grove
If you look on the right side under categories, you’ll find a few other images from this area. California’s coast line is beautiful, no matter where you go and Pacific Grove in Monterey is no exception.
As always on all of my photos on this blog, if you want to see it in higher resolution, all you have to do is click on the image and it will open in my photo gallery.
Well, it is late night and I’m super tired, but wanted to share this photo from San Francisco that I took about eighteen month ago.
La Perla is the neighborhood in the old San Juan, right outside the city walls, next to the the Santa Maria Magdalena de Pazzis Cemetery. Supposedly it is the center of all kind of organized crime activities, such as drug trade and arms dealing. We didn’t go into it, so I didn’t observe any arm dealings first hand. While it looks really colorful from this angle, if you walk along the high side, it does look somewhat run down, which is why it probably attracts all kind of questionable element.
Is it that time of year yet? When everything is decorated and in bright light. Well, not just yet, have to wait about seven more days and by next weekend everything will start looking just like this.
And today is the photo mystery day! This one probably an easy one, there some obvious clues for you to figure it out, even if you never seen this place before. As always, where is it?
When I saw this view I immediately wanted to take a shot and frame it this way. Do you see what I see? What state logo do you see in this photo? The photo itself was actually taken in Georgia on the Jekyll Island.

On the Locks of the Mississippi
My wife use to walk over this bridge every day when she was attending University of Minnesota. On our most recent trip to Minneapolis to visit friends she made sure we made a late night stop to take some photos. She is always thinking of me!

Over weekend we went to see friends in Minneapolis and took a quick ride over to Wisconsin to get another state under my belt. Yep, one more, so far pretty good progress this year, and it isn’t even over yet.
This nice waterfall is located in Osceola and you can walk behind it, pretty cool.
