Oregon
Camera: Pentax K-7 
Posted By: GeoJerry, 03-10-2014, 11:29 PM

No trips for a while, so I'm recycling some shots from a drive through Oregon 3+ years ago. The first three were shot along the southern Oregon Coast, #4 you'll recognize Crater Lake, and the last one is a sunset on the Columbia River, taken from the Washington side.

All great, but for some reason, #2 really catches my eye.

1 & 3 are Heceta Head lighthouse, just north of the Sea Lion Caves, in case you or anyone was wondering.

I like the Hecta Head Lighthouse shot. I've been there more times than I can count. Having lived in Oregon, I wouldn't call the Florance area "Southern Oregon". More like central Oregon coastline.

I was going by memory when I typed "southern Oregon," but after seeing these comments I double checked. I had a GPS unit with me on this drive and had imported the locations for each picture into my library. Sure enough, it's Heceta Head (although I didn't know it at the time), and this is definitely the central Oregon coast, not southern. A little past here was the Oregon Dunes, which was also a great place to take some pictures.

A little side story…. I was on a college hunting trip with my son at this time, and a few days prior to these pictures had lost my 17-70 (67 mm) lens cap. When I stopped to take the picture at the turnout (pic #2), there was a 67 mm lens cap lying on the metal railing you see to the right. It was encrusted in dirt and looked like it had been there a while. I don't know how it kept from blowing off. So I cleaned it off and am still using it!

Did you apply an artistic effect in PP for #1, #3 and #4? Not that there is anything wrong with that, but I'm wondering if my eyesight is really that bad. Also, do you mind sharing how you made the colours in #2 so vivid with a cloudy sky?

Yes, I've been experimenting with Topaz Simplify and applied that in these cases. Your eyes are OK.

#2 I just added some saturation. The sky was overcast but plain gray and uninteresting so I masked in more interesting overcast sky. I darkened the landscape a little as well, that can bring out the saturation a bit more. But the colors are not greatly different from the original I don't think.

Excellent images Jerry. Unfortunately I have only seen it while heading north on one of those big gray ships.
