Well, after the July update I still couldn't see the Dehaze slider in Lightroom 6.1.1. I found it frustrating that the Lightroom programmers implemented the function in Lightroom, but they wouldn't let me use it. I found a workaround some months ago that allowed me to use the feature by saving it (or rather programming it) as a preset (more like 10!) in the left hand column under the picture map. I was still not happy. Especially when I read that in Lightroom 6.1.1 the slider was correctly put in it's position. I was furious, was my Lightroom installation bad? Did I broke anything with my presets or programming the Dehaze filter to work with that workaround? No, wrong, wrong and again wrong! My version did not allow for the slider to appear. Nope! Not on this version!

It's been several months since my last post, some of you thought I had the blog retired altogether. Well, this is not true, but there was not so much time or peace of mind to write about something... about anything... Everyone talks about missing time, time badly spent, resting not as much as everyone should and taking too many responsibilities in everyone's hands. These are also all true for me this passing 6 months and I now know I should have kept up with photo news and updates because I lost some good news. And of course, I also need to shoot some more successful images for my photobank accounts and make my work available for calendars and high resolution prints in large sizes. I am also planning of making some large prints in limited editions, small office calendars and a limited edition photobook containing my latest fine art project.

Some days ago Adobe released an update for Photoshop CC 2015 that has implemented some new fixes. To update just look for the update in the Creative Cloud application and click “Update”. If you don’t have the Creative Cloud application running, start Photoshop 2015 and choose Help > Updates. The Adobe Application Manager will launch. Select Adobe Photoshop CC 2015 and choose Update.
- EISA is the unique association of nearly 50 special interest magazines from 22 European countries. Internationally known for the European EISA Awards, EISA started in 1982 when the editors-in-chief from five European photo magazines came together to select “The Camera of the Year” for the first time. They had no idea that out of this meeting EISA - the European Imaging and Sound Association - would emerge some years later. This historic moment took place in 1989 after another 10 photo magazines had joined the group in the meanwhile.

Recently, perhaps rather delayed, I wanted to give a try to long exposure photography, having a ND1000 (or ND 3.0) filter in my bag for some time now and not having used it as many times as I wanted. So, I cleaned the dust over it and headed towards Sounio and St. Nikolaos in Saronida, Attiki with a friend of mine. It was poring and the weather was depressing, but we hoped that we would have our chance when the sun would descend. Since we had a long time ahead, we agreed to head over to Sounio and try some long exposure shots with the heavy clouds passing over the Temple Of Poseidon across the bay.
