Writing forces me to examine my views as cold words on a page.
My views are borne out of my experiences on this world.
My experiences are slowly adding to the short story that is my life.
While I still can, I choose to share some for anyone who might find them useful, or perhaps just entertaining.

I’ve made a few comments about the performance of Luminar 4. Specifically, how it’s slow to come online and once online, its difficulty with showing me the thumbnails of the photos I have. Then, when I’m editing a photo, it’s … Continue reading
I subscribe to KelbyOne for Photoshop and Lightroom tutorials and tips and hints. Every year, they provide freebies to their members for the 12 Days of Christmas. This year, one of them was a year-long membership to PlotaVerse. For them … Continue reading
A not-so-quick post . . . Those are leaves just under the water surface (some are poking through the surface). I picked a photo at random from a group of similar shots. I had planned on a quick post, but … Continue reading
Just a quick post . . . And from there . . .
I follow the blog Cosmic Focus where a recent post showed a photo of the moon. I hesitate posting other people’s photos here (as in: I rarely do) so if you want to see the photo, it’s HERE. If I … Continue reading

Aurora HDr does great with bracketed shots and my last post showed it capably handles single photos . . . but, what about Luminar 3 by the same company? OK, OK, I’m probably burning out my few readers with these … Continue reading

Quick Note: My typical reader either doesn’t care about this stuff or they already know it, so who are these posts for? Well, they are for a tiny portion of humanity; they are for people who just developed (developed; get … Continue reading
HDR (High Dynamic Range) processing was all the rage some time ago. Impossibly lit and detailed photos with overly-saturated colors were showing up everywhere . . . for a while. Some people hated them, some loved them. For me, it’s just another tool … Continue reading
I did a post about The Topaz Labs Adjust AI offering . . . and I’m now following up with another post because Topaz Labs are running a contest (entry by July 1st) for the best use of Adjust AI. The winner gets … Continue reading
It’s no secret I’m a fan of the various offerings from Topaz Labs and I just got notice of their latest offerings, Topaz Labs Adjust AI. I should disclose that since I purchased the original Adjust plugin, I received this … Continue reading
