Sunset – Key Largo, FL

View of the sunset on Key Largo, FL, looking west from the beach at  the Marriott Resort towards Key Largo Bay.

The Florida Keys are famous for their breathtaking sunsets. On any given day, the beaches are filled with people watching for the “green flash” – the moment when the sun disappears completely below the horizon.

Hand Colored – Cathedral Basilica, St. Augustine, FL

The Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine was founded in September, 1565, making it the oldest parish in the US and Canada. It sits in the center of historic St. Augustine, America’s oldest city. It underwent major renovation on its 400th anniversary in 1965 but still retains the authentic flavor of the Spanish Franciscans who founded the parish.

New Tools – Lightroom 3, Nik Complete and Perfect Layers!

I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of some new software goodies…finally making the jump to Adobe Lightroom from Photoshop. I will still use Photoshop, but looking forward to using Lightroom. I only did this becuase of a new product, OnOne Software’s Perfect Layers that allows Lightroom to work in layers just like Photoshop. Since it was developed in partnership with Scott Kelby, I know it will be a great tool! I use a lot of layers in Photoshop when working with textures and it will be super to have the other great tools in Lightroom AND be able to add layers. I am also ordering the Nik Software Complete Bundle which includes Dfine, Sharpener, Vivenza, HDR Pro, Color EFX Pro and my #1 favorite, Silver EFX Pro. With these tools, along with my other favs, the Topaz Labs Bundle there is no creative limit to what I can do! Cant wait to see what “develops”…excuse the photo pun!
