To help get this party started, we have changed our cover photo to @112957708071337353347's amazing image, _"The Future Is Now"_, taken in Dubai, UAE. Elia is also our special guest judge for the first month of this cover photo hunt, and he can't wait to see the great images that we are confident you will submit!

More about this photo from @112957708071337353347 travel photography blog at www.blamethemokey.com  _"The Meydan Bridge is a VIP entrance to the Meydan Racecourse, a mega structure in Dubai that is able to accommodate over 60,000 spectators in a 1 mile long grandstand. It was a strange feeling actually – to be standing on this opulent mega structure in the middle of the desert, miles away from the city, and with nobody around. Half the lights were dead too. I guess after Tom Cruise was finished driving over it in Mission Impossible 3, they really didn’t have a need to maintain it anymore. :)"_ Nikon D700  14-24mm  f/5.6  ISO 200SmugMug Cover Photo Submissions For April2013-03-08 00:00:00279

Did some processing today ....

Portrait

Today I edited an image from a model shoot.
(edited, added some steps and lighting info)

From left to right you see different stages:

1st stage : 
 - RAW straight of the camera

2st stage :
 - dealt with the light spill from the background illumination on her right arm,
 - adjusted the exposure,
 - removed skin spots 
 - did minor changes on the hair 
 - processed the image in general (curves, vibrancy, shadows)
 - applied definition (clarity in LR) to the hair and the dress
 - increased saturation of the red on her lips
 - plus adding a bit  of vignette

3rd stage:
 - added some dodge & burn to the face which came out a bit too light in the 2nd stage, tried to enhance the eyes and the shadow on her right face.

4th stage:
 - reduced the saturation in general
 - increased the vignette.

Lighting:
1x6ft gridded strip light behind model on camera left
6ft reflective umbrella with sock next to, a bit in front of the model on camera right
1 orange gelled speedlight directed to the black backdrop ___Did some processing today ....

In two weeks we have reason to celebrate by showing some decent lighthouse footage.
So be prepared  .... 

Save the date 6th August
That day we have a special anniversary_

Let's post a hundred lighthouse images on that day.

So go out shooting or search your archives to celebrate it.
I start searching for a special one right away.

See you(r image) in two weeks

+Heiko Köster 

ps.: Thanks to +Allen Firstenberg for reminding me.
