Secret Beach (16 miles south of Gold Beach, Oregon)

Should you ever find yourself looking for the secret beach, be sure to take the path to the right from the parking area as that trail is much better.

7-photo photomerge of Santa Barbara (December 2013)

I’ve spent much of my 52+ years on the planet in California. I was born there. I’ve lived near the border for more than the last 20 years. 1988 is the only year that I spent zero time in California (as I was in Japan the entire year). In 2020 I spent less than one day in California. That was for a brief hiking excursion in the Trinity Alps.

Hopefully, 2021 will be better, but so far I have no plans to venture into California this year.

Without Topaz Adjust AI and DeNoise AI

Once upon a time, about eight and half years ago, I didn’t shoot in RAW; I only saved my shots in jpg format. Alas, those photos are far more difficult to process in terms of getting them to look like what the scene originally looked like. The above, 11-photo photomerge is one such example. In Photoshop I wasn’t able to get the final panorama to look like the brilliance of the sunset from that one evening in New York back in 2012. Because I shot in jpg, the details were muddy and not recoverable (in Photoshop at least).

I downloaded Topaz Labs’ Adjust AI to see if it could do better. Adjust AI comes with a bunch of filters, none of which I liked. However, the adjustments for highlights, colors, shadows, etc. are far more powerful and customizable in manual mode than what you see in Photoshop, and I was able to bring the scene back to something more closely resembling what I saw with my naked eye that evening. The results are below.
