June 15th, 2011 – Golden Tide

Todays image is from a brief stop at Seattle’s Alki Point. Since it wasn’t a planned shoot and my time was pretty limited, so I had to take what I could get. I did have an idea for a specific shot at this place that came to mind when I shot at this beach during the winter months, but the conditions will need to be slightly different.

While this is one frame from a series of  RAW brackets intended to be used for an HDR image, I decided to try processing it solely on the iPad in further exploring the idea of a stand alone mobile post-processing solution. The Snapspeed app from Nik Software is a joy to use, but it does seem to be missing a  few key elements for image editing.  It doesn’t seem to have the ability to zoom in to see the image at the pixel level. It also seems to resize the original file to smaller resolution image. Dust spot removal and cloning are also a couple features that would make it a more complete package. For a $4.99 program it is pretty cool though. There are some other iPad apps out there that I plan on trying out for image editing.
