They say that they have the the most beautiful photos on the web. I don't know about that, but I can say that there are some really great ones. You should take a look. They will inspire you to either trash your camera or go out and take better pictures. My vote is to keep shooting and improve your craft. You can find it here.

This is a must. Take a look at the photos from the Worldwide Photo Walk that Scott has put up on his blog. He announced the winners on Friday, but today he put up some of his personal favorites. WOW! You can see them here.

I've mentioned many times before that Color Efex Pro 3, from NIK software, rocks. Everyone of my photos is touched by one or more of the filters inside it. Tonal Contrast is a favorite. Now NIK has introduced Color Efex Pro 4. The changes and additions are extraordinary. If you don't believe me, go to their site and take one of their free webinars. You'll be blown away. Here's the link. You can also get a 15% discount, if you decide to buy it, by adding the code AKESS.

I've tried something similar and it really works. Take a look at the video here. You may find an increase in "Noise" with these long exposures. You'll have to deal with that in post.
In the photo above, I actually wanted the people. I think it adds to the excitement of the location.

I think I now know what happened with the blog. When I signed on to Google + I had to do something with Picasa. That may have thrown the whole thing off. I haven't decided if I'll go back and try to insert all the photos again. What a pain. I'll let you know.

Something has gone terribly wrong with my blog. I have been trying to get it back on track but no luck so far. I'll keep working on it now that I'm back from Germany and Belgium.
I'll get to post some photos soon and some other interesting things that are going on.
