NZ Police helicopter this evening, making rather a dick of themselves:

I find this rather interesting and it raises a couple of questions for me;

a) How did you track this unless you were driving/navigating?

b) I notice that the orbits close in on the Cereal Killa Cafe, could that have been the unsub/object of the search pattern?

The name of that cafe sort of leaves me cold as well! Serial killer indeed. Harumph :)

As I said in G9 - interesting image, and appropriate for the city :-)

How did you do it?

Luminar 4 which I prepaid for and worried about my money for months. It is generally good for not too difficult pics. This new version has a sky replace which I did, and a texture overlay. I used another photo as the over lay (the buildings are falling in) and then used some of their artistic finishes in cluding light fog and I brushed one mask somewhat unevenly during the process., The signature came from Affinity photo which is an Adobe challenger, very good stuff and way past me. I recently spent 80 on a book to learn it. Great book but Chris's brain, not so great. I enjoyed making this one, have settled on the name, city living.

Interesting. I have almost decided to get Luminar 4, and perhaps this has decided me.

I have tried editing th same images with Lightroom and Luminar and I invariably do better with LR, but they may be because I use it almost all the time ....

4 is quite different from 3, do trial it first to see if you like it before you buy.

From what I have read elsewhere L4 offers quite a bit, and i know someone from another forum is giving it serious consideration. Did wonderful sky drop in one click

But it cant fix lens issues, doesn't have layers, and layoutr is entirely changed. No point in haveing something just because it changes skies., but yes it does. One click.

The other thing is that I am not one click sky person - in fact don't see it as anything I would want to do.

I can see L4 does things, but still prefer Lightroom 6 standalone as everything stands at present.

Someone on another forum showed that as well ... amazing.

Not sure if I would use it much, but who knows.

Clive today. Not a great image, but it appealed to my sense of humour. Three ducks, all standing on one leg, on stones in surrounding water, with the front duck apparently laughing :-)

These two ducks standing on a rock together appealed ...

Apparently they're teals not ducks, although I don't know what the difference is :-)

The one above of the teals I mean.
