The overwhelming majority of photographs on this trip were taken with a Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8 lens; the remainder were taken with a Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 lens. With the exception of the Heceta Lighthouse, there was very little processing done with any of the photographs; generally it involved the following: setting black and white points, adding a little clarity and vibrance, minor curves adjustments for a few, noise taken out of dark skies, and some sharpening added; a few had a little vignetting, and a few were cropped; all of the processing was done in Lightroom, except for Silver Efex Pro for the lighthouse and the frames for which I used the onOne plug-in residing in Photoshop. It took less than 5 minutes to process almost each of them.
For the most part, I don't do commentary on the photographs that I post. I prefer for you to see them through your eyes (and heart and soul). In the brief couple of months that I have been on aminus3, you have been extremely kind and supportive. One of my struggles is to keep my photographs true to my own vision, rather than trying to create what I think that people want to see. I have great admiration for those of you who are professionals, but I could never be one. One more thing, every time any of you post a photograph on aminus3, you are taking a risk and you are exposing the deepest part of who you are. I am very grateful for the gifts of yourselves that you share.
