I was flipping through my unedited images in Lightroom 3 and I found this great action shot of the boys down in Galveston. A few weeks ago we decided to run down there for a few days before it started getting cool, and we had a wonderful time. It was warm and sunny and perfect. I decided to post this photo just because it makes me happy (I am smiling right now as I type).
I used my new action Golden Afternoon and a texture from the Chasing Dreams Mishmosh set (Elegance). I love how the texture really enhanced the otherwise boring blue sky. Golden Afternoon is similar to my favorite action, Butterscotch Vintage, but has a slightly different tint and a bit more contrast. I think you will really enjoy using it and I think it is stunning on beach scenes such as the one below.
I just calibrated my iMac with my Spyder 3 Pro and I am really happy how it turned out. I had used it on my PC/Dell combo, but I was scared to try it on my new computer. But it worked! I also pulled out my husband's old PC laptop and calibrated it and the screen doesn't blind me anymore. It is such an easy calibrator and I am so happy I can use it on my Mac.
So now my screen is calibrated and it is time to get some photos printed at ColorInc! I have so many great shots of the boys and it is crazy they are just sitting there in LightRoom...
Hope you are enjoying the last of the weekend!
