    That was me! I wish you did!

    I would guess that I spent about 8 - 10 hours on that panorama.
    I processed the 7 exposures for each section in RAW at the same time, then had to process each section as the HDR and then do the layer masking in of the neon and sky into each section. Then I stitched those together and used the Adaptive Wide Angle fiter to straighten out the distortion. I tried to straighten out the curve of the street but it looked really funky, so I had to leave that part as it is.

    Then I opened it in Nik Color EFX. This is a great add on tool that has a ton of things you can do in it. However, I only use 3 of the effects and a little of those goes a long way. The Brilliance / Warmth slider is nice to bring up the color and either warm it up or cool it down.
    The Tonal Contrast is the main one I use to bring out detail, especially in pavement, brick and wood. If used too much, it will add a lot of noise to the image, especially in the skies, so I always just brush it into the areas that I want it to work on.
    The other one I use only on occasion is the Pro Contrast filter. It can help if the color tone of the image isn't quite right.

    I really only use about 5% of the program but it is a very important 5%.

    I do recommend it if you can pick it up cheap!

    Thank you! Wonderful information as always. I think I will need to get a copy and use it with lightroom. I still cannot believe that you don't use lightroom.

    Today's "Disneyland Photo Tip of the Day" is just a little quicky called Small details can make more interesting photographs than the entire subject. This is especially true if you see a small detail and have a vision in mind for the final image.

    I was eating lunch with my wife the other day in Rancho Del Zocalo and playing with my new Canon 5D Mark III. We noticed the sun coming through the stained glass window behind me and both thought it was really pretty. My wife Diane is using my old T1i, so she took this photo of it.

    I got closer and took this photo, wanting to just capture the light coming through the glass and the unqiue shape and pattern in the glass.

    Then, as I looked at the pattern in the glass and the light in it, I figured that just a close up of the center circle would make a pretty cool image. I knew that I could really bump up the saturation on it and use the Backlight feature in Photoscape to make it pop as something completely unique. Here is the final image. I know it is very abstract but that is what I really like about it.

    Re: The Disneyland Photo of the Day...

    I've been keeping an up to date list of all the photo tips for myself to refer back to but decided maybe others would like a complete list as well. New posts are added usually within a day. So here is it on Google Docs for anyone who wants to see it. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...it?usp=sharing

    I did take the previous two index posts and incorporated them into this document, so I'd like to thank those members who made those posts (And I would include their names but I didn't bookmark the posts to find them again). I will be going back through all the links and standardizing the document over the next few weeks.

    Holy Cow! That's awesome! Thank you. I can use that too, when I'm working on the book and have to refer back to certain posts.

    The light (exposure wise) itself is pretty good but it is very even throughout the entire frame, which doesn't draw the eye to any specific part of the image. The spot with the highest contrast is usually what will draw the eye to it first and in this instance, that dark contrast is the microphone stand. The stage lighting also contains a specific pink tint making her face pink.

    I altered the color tone of the image to correct the color cast on her face and then I added a very slight vignette on the corners to make her stand out a little more from the background. They are slight changes but they make a nice difference.

    Re: The Disneyland Photo of the Day...

    I've been playing around with some new Portrait photo editing techniques while still in Camera Raw from Photoshop CS6.
    For my experiments I went back to some previously unedited photos that I took a long time ago of a little girl in the Bibbidi Bobbidy Boutique.
    This is the image I was playing with.

    I was wondering if any of you that actually read this column have Photoshop CS6 and if so, is this kind of editing anything you care about?

    Please let me know what you think..
