Thanks Tony - appreciate the walk through. I don't have LR4 here, as I have been a Photoshop user for years. But the RAW engine is the same, and all of the tools are identical even though the metaphor seems to be a bit different. Despite that, I follow what you're doing. Thanks again!

Steve, if you have PS CS6, then you have PV 2012 for ACR and all the tools! Play with it!

PV is the Process Version of the Raw developer used by Camera Raw and Lightroom. CS6, with Camera Raw 7, and LR4, have a new PV 2012 that has some upgraded tools that are nice.

Hm, well I'm using the RAW converter in CS6, and I did see they have changed up some stuff. Still haven't gone through the tutorial I have scheduled though - too many new things I need to learn all at the same time here. :) I suppose work takes precedence over my photo hobby.:rolleyes:

Well, the good news is that CS6 ACR and Lightroom 4 have the same tools/capabilities, so a search of either "camera raw cs6 highlight recovery" or "lightroom 4 highlight recovery" should show oodles of links!

Hey gang, I'm getting out and on the Road again, on my bike and packing camera gear!

There are some groups in this area around town here that do hiking/walking MeetUps, I've hooked up with two and just today a third, and they should make good summer photo ops!

This summer is bringing some inspiration! I've started to be a Biking Photog again!

So, Tuesday I met a hiking/walking MeetUp group, taking my bike and packing camera gear:

I just got a few shots. Here's a couple of the scene:

A few of the hikers:

Nice Pacific Northwest sky:)!

The park where we were also had a skateboard/biking "area" that was popular for the kids. I didn't have the time to get into shooting the action, but here's a shot of the overall scene:

Well, gang, some of you Facebook members who are "Friends" may have seen this, if so you can ignore this post...

For the rest, well, last Father's Day something came up that stirred up some very deep memories and feelings, and as a result I felt "compelled" to write up a bit of my story, my history, that may be interesting and I hope touching to some folks.

I posted it on Facebook (with some links to photos), please feel free to check it out, it's the first/top article on my Wall:

Hey All!

Well, I've been busy, and haven't checked in here lately!

But, I've been pushing myself to get out, to "hit the road" on my bike and packing my photo gear, I've been doing the hiking MeetUps, and then getting involved in some event photography, all to get me "out there"! And this summer is getting active!

I'm used to being the "guy behind the camera", but occasionally I can slip into a group photo. On this one the group "coordinator" had a lightweight tripod:

IMAGE: http://www.pbase.com/tonylong/image/144243002/original.jpg

Another day we met at a local wetlands. Here was the scene:

IMAGE: http://www.pbase.com/tonylong/image/144415822/original.jpg

And there was a post I could put the camera on:

IMAGE: http://www.pbase.com/tonylong/image/144415841/original.jpg

This wetlands is pretty cool because it is part of a whole series that runs through town, and in places it runs through residential areas and such:

IMAGE: http://www.pbase.com/tonylong/image/144416082/original.jpg

I mentioned "events", well one little group I've gotten involved with puts on weekly "drum circles":

IMAGE: http://www.pbase.com/tonylong/image/144372748/original.jpg

IMAGE: http://www.pbase.com/tonylong/image/144372750/original.jpg

So, last Sunday I put in 20 miles on my bike for a hiking meetup, I haven't made it through the photos yet. Tomorrow will be a 4th of July drum circle and BarBQue, Thursday will be a "Concert in the Park" in our downtown, a lot going on!!

Tony, looks like you're having a blast!

Hey PNWers, I will be heading to Hurricane Ridge tomorrow evening for some low light photography. If you have time and the want, will, drive, you can meet me there at the visitors center. I plan (hope) to set up at the very end of the parking lot for some night shots. I invite you all out there. If you do pls respond here as I will see it before I head out late afternoon. :D If not, I will post the photos here to make you all jealous :D

Thank you. We had planned to walk over to Spencer Island for a bit of a walk, but they have the path fenced off for some construction going on there. So we sat down on a bench right under Interstate 5 and within a couple of minutes saw two eagles and the red tailed hawk. The one in the second image above must have been only about 20 feet over the freeway there, but since we were below he was still a ways up for us. VERY close compared to any other sighting I've had...
