The new Photomatix Version 4.0 is out. Some new cool stuff was added, including a filmstrip preview feature. The thumbnails preview various generic HDR styles as well as your own saved settings. The user interface remains easy to use with a better tool explanation section. Nicely done all the way around.

Bridge To Somewhere

—————————————————————————————–

What is it with me and bridges? Might it be I’m looking to cross some kind of personal divide? I’ll have to ring up my friend, a disgruntled former tarot card reader who lives in Houston,  for his take on the issue.

Brooklyn’s Wall Of Remembrance

_____

I went out for the evening, the D300 in hand, looking to shoot some images. I end up at Key Span Park, home of the New York Mets minor league affiliate the Brooklyn Cyclones. I’m walking around the park, the Cyclones were on the road that night, and I turn up the side of the ballpark and discover this 9-11 Memorial. I was kind of stunned. There, on the bottom row was a plaque for Captain Vinny Brunton. He was a guy I knew, a man I knew, and we lost him on 9-11 but seeing him on that wall, almost by accident, was…just sad all over again.

Back Corner In Black And White

_____

I’ve been asked by a couple of readers to show a Black and White version of this HDR. Done.I haven’t worked in B&W since the “old days'” with my 1969 Nikon F. I hope those who were curious about HDR’s in B&W, and the conversion from a color digital file, find it interesting. I needed to create about 7 layer comps in Ps before I could decide which version I liked. The larger size gives a better look. Feel free to let me know what your thoughts are.

Porcelain And Beads

“Enter the doorway of Bob & Judi’s Coolectibles and step back in time. Photos and postcards of Old Brooklyn, posters and tin signs beckon you down the aisles of shelves overflowing with pottery, glass, ceramics, toys and all things vintage. The cases shimmer with colorful costume jewelry; gold and silver treasures to unearth. Great music and a feel good vibe keep you there much longer than you thought you’d be.”
