Afterglow at the Florian, San Marco Piazza, Venice

Christmas is wonderful but it can be a little sad after all the festivities are over so I hope you can join me at the Caffè Florian in Saint Marks Square in Venice for the afterglow party in April.

After processing this image in Lightroom 5.7 I brought the image into Topaz Adjust 5 to brighten the image and make it a little more festive.

Highlight recovery in Photoshop Elements 13

Last week was the first time I had the opportunity to work with the new Photoshop Elements 13 and I was impressed by its highlight recovery. Debbie B. captured this wonderful image in Lower Antelope canyon during the Southwest workshop .

If you have worked in any of the Photoshop develop modules you can work in any of the other Photoshop develop modules. They are all laid out similarly. Debbie B. emailed me this great composition that she had captured during the Southwest workshop and I walked her through the steps to process her image. The highlight recovery in Elements 13 is far superior to the highlights I have been able to recover in CS6 and Lightroom 5.7. Adobe keeps surprising me with their software magic!

Balcony Gardens of Rome May 2015 Photo Workshop

In the spring of 2015 from April 28 through May 12 of 2015 I will be in Italy capturing images and teaching. In Rome the balcony gardens have been amazing when I have been there in the fall and I am looking forward to capturing them in their spring bloom.

This balcony garden near the Piazza Navona in Roma is one of the locations I want to spend time capturing.

I used the cloning and healing tools in Photoshop to clean up the image and then used Topaz Clarity to help with the colors in this image and then used Nik Pro Contrast to fine tune my color adjustments.
