What was I thinking?

I am not exactly sure what my frame of mind was yesterday when I posted the image of Little Pixley Falls. Although I am happy with the composition I would have normally processed the image as monochrome. So, as an immediate redo, here is the image that was in my head when I clicked the shutter…

Little Pixley Falls Nikon D5100, Nikkor 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5, 2.5s, 26mm, f/6, ISO 100

I’m going to blame the oops moment on me signing up for the Adobe Photographer Create Cloud program which allows me to use Lightroom (which I have since I started this journey) and Photoshop. I have been using Photoshop Elements but the cost difference between upgrading Elements and buying into this program just made sense for me. Luckily most of the basic functionality is the same so I was able to jump right in but I am looking forward to learning what the big brother Photoshop can do. πŸ™‚

  1. I always enjoy color photos so I don’t see the other one as an oops!
    How are you liking the Cloud so far? I received Lightroom as a gift for Christmas and I’m still plugging away at it. I had PSE on my old computer (version 7 I think) and haven’t installed it on this one, but I do miss some of the things I did with it.

    • Hey Karma! I guess I meant, not what I had in mind… πŸ™‚

      So far I have not had any issues. The basics of Photoshop are familiar enough to Elements that I can do what I need to do. When I looked at the combined costs of a LIghtroom upgrade next year and Elements it was more than the cost for the Photographer version of the CC. I’m fairly good with Lightroom but I just a bought a book for Photoshop to get me up-to-speed quicker there…I think as I stretch my creative muscles more I will enjoy the added functionality/power of Photoshop. Next up… a Wacom tablet. πŸ™‚

  2. I know (finally) why I like the black and white one better. The color one seemed to focus on the log, and this one makes the falls the focus.

    • Funny you say that Dawn. It is the reason why I wanted to convert to B&W. The color image shifted the focus. I like the log in the foreground but it overpowered the color image. The bright white falls work better for me in the B&W. Thanks!
