Boat Job – Boat – Photo
Good afternoon everyone. I hope your week has started well.
Today’s image is, once again, from the Outer Banks of North Carolina. It was fairly early one morning when I took this picture and I thought of how it might be to “go to work” on a boat. Seems like a good place to work, I know I’d go for it… at least for a little while!
Technically – In Terms of Processing
This one was really quite simple, as far as capture and editing goes…
In fact I don’t think I went out of Lightroom except for one little thing. I did all my tweaks to exposure, and color inside the Develop module and then headed into Nik’s Color Efex and used the “Glamour Glow” to soften and warm things up a bit.
Back into Lightroom I cropped the image and applied a subtle Split-Tone before exporting it for the blog.
Thanks for stopping by!
By the way my nephew refers to the beach as “God’s big sandbox…” I think that’s a great name.
Beautiful processing. I’ve often wondered about Nik’s software. Would you recommend it?

As far as Nik goes, I would have recommended it in a heart beat about 6 months ago, but since they were bought by Google there really hasn’t been much going on as far as updates and stuff… the longevity of support and future updates bothers me some.
On the other hand I was looking at OnOne’s software the other day and I was pretty impressed… they are quite active in updating and promoting their stuff too at this point.
I think if I didn’t have Nik’s software already I would be quite tempted to jump to OnOne!
And that has been my dilemma for a while. I’ve been very impressed with OnOne, but have heard a lot of people mention using Nik. So I didn’t get either and spend the time doing everything in LR and Photoshop to get the looks I want.
