Help People Living With Parkinson’s Disease

If you can’t make it to the USA Pro Challenge this week, pick up my newest book and help people living with Parkinson’s Disease. This week I am donating a dollar from every book sold to the Davis Phinney Foundation which help people living with Parkinson’s Disease, live well.

Today’s Photo

Almond Beach Resort Belize

Today we are looking at the Almond Beach Resort in Belize. It’s a single image stylized using Nik Software Color Efex Pro. I have found that night shots usually only require a single image because the ‘Highlight Recovery’ slider in Lightroom is very powerful. As long as I get details in the shadows, I can usually recover the highlights. Sure, I’m not going to recover the details in all the spectral highlights…but who cares about that?

  1. Nice shot, Justin. You’re right about usually just needing a single image. The newer cameras capture so much dynamic range and the software (Lightroom) is so powerful, I think traditional HDR may be going the way of the DSLR.
