HELP  I'm having a very strange issue in Photoshop CC 2015 - it's the first time I've come across something like this, and I can't find a cause.

It may be hard to see here, but there is about a 1/2 stop or more difference between the working image (Lighter) and the image in the Navigator window (Darker). These should be exactly the same. When I go to upload an image to a SM site like G+, FB, or even look at in Windows Explorer, the image is equal to the darker Navigation version.  I've checked all of my color settings, Preferences, etc., and still can't figure out why the larger version in the work area is noticeably lighter. This is consistent regardless of the image that's open, and happens even after closing and restarting Photoshop.

I'd love to hear any helpful thoughts or suggestions, especially if you've encountered this before.more »

Evening light over seastack near Davenport, Santa Cruz County coast, California

There wasn't a lot of color in the sky when I took this picture, but waiting until the start of the blue hour to make longer exposures definitely helped to set the moody feeling of this image a little better. Let me know if you agree.

My Moderator's Choice for last week is this beautiful shot by +Keith Cuddeback - I love the flow of the water heading off the rock and sweeping out toward the sun setting over the ocean.

Transition

It's been several days since I've made time to processing photos. This evening I made myself come in to find something to play with from an old shoot. This shot, taken along the San Mateo County coast, I found in my 2014 folder.

It's a four exposure HDR processed in Aurora HDR Pro. Originally I shot 5 brackets but the 5th bracket was just too bright to be of any help, so that's why I used only four (-4, -2, 0, +2). The de-ghosting in Aurora HDR worked really well here because that wave crash was really moving.

The photo was finished in Topaz Star Effects and Topaz Restyle.

My belated selection for Moderator's Choice is this stunning high vista taken by +Michael Flaherty. I could give lots of wonderful reasons why I selected this, but the only one that really counts is the fact that it's a totally awesome view and a shot I want to get someday myself. I had planned to do it a couple years ago but got put off by some huge thunderstorms.

Here's a cool little five minute audio clip of Michael Adams talking about his dad. Especially relevant to today's photographers and the use of photoshop is the comments about the darkroom manipulation of his famed Moonrise over Hernandez.

HELP  I'm having a very strange issue in Photoshop CC 2015 - it's the first time I've come across something like this, and I can't find a cause.

It may be hard to see here, but there is about a 1/2 stop or more difference between the working image (Lighter) and the image in the Navigator window (Darker). These should be exactly the same. When I go to upload an image to a SM site like G+, FB, or even look at in Windows Explorer, the image is equal to the darker Navigation version.  I've checked all of my color settings, Preferences, etc., and still can't figure out why the larger version in the work area is noticeably lighter. This is consistent regardless of the image that's open, and happens even after closing and restarting Photoshop.

I'd love to hear any helpful thoughts or suggestions, especially if you've encountered this before.more »

My Moderator's Choice image for last week is this beautiful share of the sand dunes in Death Valley. It's always great to see how the light dances across this magnificent landscape.

Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes at Death Valley... This place is truly photographers paradise. Artistic shapes of sand dunes, beautiful patterns of sand created by wind, and plentiful play of light & shadows, what else a photographer can ask for?
Photography is more delightful at sunrise and an hour before sunset. I couldn't resist clicking hundreds of pictures.. This place is addictive!

Let me know if you think this is a good, descriptive photo caption: "The Cosmic Web – A spider web mimics the distribution of galaxies on strand-like bands of matter throughout the universe following the Big Bang."  

Seeing how cosmology and physics are in the air as scientists seem to be on the verge of discovering what Einstein predicted as Gravitational Waves, I thought this would be a good image to post. Also, in case you missed it, this was one of the images I selected for my recent Favorite images of 2015: bit.ly/1YXyG15

Do you think the spread of Social Media and the photographic urge to just "Get the Shot" are playing a role in loving our National Parks to death?

Here's a good read from a Park Ranger/Photographer in Grand Teton NP. I'm sure every ranger out there has a ton of similar stories. I know I have issues seeing popular SM posts of folks hanging out on the rock at Glacier Point (illegal) or climbing onto the beach below the waterfall on the Big Sur coast (also illegal).
