    Beautiful. How does the pop art feature work? (What does it do, in other words?)

    It makes colors pop. Here are two photos, standard vs pop art, for comparison:

    A big (and beautiful) difference. Thanks.

    I'd argue that the temple looks fine, but the hillside shot seems fake because the reds are off. Maybe dialed back a little on the red side would look better. Also, you lose some detail with that; have you tried to use "sharpen" after using it?

    There is no question that you lose detail with pop art, epsecially with reds.

    Pop art can give a photo a touch of unreality.

    The game tonight was not great, but the sunset at the end of the game was spectacular!

    I'm thinking about starting a blog for posting about my efforts in photography. I would talk about the subjects and locations, and about the experience of getting the pictures. Problem: I can't think of a title. Any suggestions?

    Possiblities I thought of are "The Camera Eye" after the Rush song or "Through the Camera Lens."

    Here's the sun setting over the Newport peninsula and Catalina. If I had pulled out my phone 60 seconds earlier it was really breathtaking.

    Here is a quick and dirty one while learning the art of astrophotography better. I took in on my front porch. It is the orion nebula

    This doesn't really belong in this forum, but I have a question.

    There is an old painting with a cocky looking smirk on the man and he is holding a cane and pointing his fingers. Somebody on the former messageboard used it as an avatar at one time. I'm racking my brain to remember who the painter is, anyone remember?

    Taken near Stansbury Island. I was amazed how dark the sky gets there so close to SLC

    wow...very nice.

    U-Ute...would you mind if I share your photo, via facebook, with a photography-nut friend of mine? I think he'd really enjoy this. Will credit you of course.

    I love Utah sunsets. I’ve almost always lived in places with a good to great view over the valley to the east and often take those sunsets for granted.

    When I lived in Texas the sun would just kind of disappear on the horizon at night and I really missed them.
