This isn’t a deliberate ploy to post the same image as last week. This image was taken at the same time as last week’s Friday image but the lighting is stronger. The reason it looks stronger is that the image is processed using Nik Viveza. When I did this, I employed a few adjustment tricks that people might not realise to try. I decided to share these “Secrets of Viveza” using a video which is posted on my you tube channel. I also embedded the clip below.

I hope you find it useful and have a great weekend.

It’s the end of another week and I’m preparing for an early morning start. I’m going to try some shots over in the Peak District but as is often the case, the weather forecast doesn’t look too good. Hopefully things won’t look quite as bad when I get on location.

I have also been busy trying to find an image to share but I wasn’t coming up with much. In the end I selected the image above. I have shared other images from this shoot in the past but I really like these.

This is a single RAW image processed in Lightroom and then enhanced with Nik Viveza. I have tried to keep the adjustments looking natural and I hope you like the treatment.

Have a great weekend.

In my previous post I showed an image shot during my recent holiday in Cornwall. It was used to illustrate how you can achieve a significant depth of field even at what might appear to be a large aperture. I said in the post that I had a better version of the image which was shot at sunset. I therefore thought that I would share this as this week’s Friday image. I hope you like it.

Have a great weekend everyone.

PS I am still working my way through a large backlog of emails so if I haven’t responded to you yet I will do as soon as possible.

After a short break last week I wanted to share a new Friday Image. This was taken just over a week ago in Cornwall. We went down to St Ives which is a lovely Cornish village if you have never had the opportunity to visit. The light there is amazing and some of the atmospheric effects at sunset can be spectacular.

Have a great weekend everyone.


Update 18/08/14

Someone recently sent me a link to a competition. I don’t normally enter these but thought I would give it a shot seeing as how one of my favourite subjects is the sea. Here is the link for anyone out there who is interested in trying their hand also. The compertition is being run by Cruise.co.uk

There are also some cracking pictures on the judges site so well worth a look.
