Flying over to the west coast this afternoon for a meeting tomorrow morning. I am hoping to get in early enough to have a chance to head to the El Matador beach and get some sunset pictures with the rock formations in the foreground before heading over to the hotel in Hollywood.
Hollywood Hills – Los Angeles, California
This was a pretty boring picture – middle of the day, clear blue skies, etc.. so I decided to play around with it a little bit. I took it into Nik Analog EFX Pro 2 (they just released the second version which is free to update if you had the first one) and applied their ‘double exposure’ tool to overlay the image overtop of itself and then applied a few other effects like vignette, radial motion, etc… To me this is a much more interesting photo now. I don’t tend to do too much post processing but it does help to spice up a rather bland picture straight out of the camera.
