Speaking of mood…
Perfect disappearing path.. so enticing!

Thanks, Liz. It actually does disappear. A very short path. 🙂
The color here is a softer and more diffuse version of the orange sunrise-through-fog you recently posted. The pine-needled (?) path seems to have captured and solidified the color in the air. It’s exquisite.
Yes, those are pine needles covering pine roots which were the first thing to draw my attention. Generally I prefer softer light for fog landscapes but am not complaining about the other either. Thanks, Linda.
The mass of orange needles reminds me of ochre.
Maybe it was Ochretober since the date of this image is 10/24/19.
Thanks, Mike. The disappointing part of this is that it’s an iPhone shot and the only file I could get onto the computer was a tiny 4.2MB. I am sure the file is larger but LR crashes when I try to download from the phone and copying to Windows Media Player just nets me the small file size.
It probably is that size as a jpg.
I haven’t really thought about making prints from the iPhone files up to this point but I know others do. I like this image enough to actually try to figure it out.
Once it’s in the computer, it’s just another file.
Yeah. I think the file size in camera is 8 megapixels and the new 11 Max Pro makes 12. Don’t know why I lost @4 mp. I guess it may have to do with the dynamic range in this image.
Open it in Photoshop and check the image size. I believe an 8 – 12 megapixel image will jpg compress to about 4 megabytes.
Yes, this one did just that.
A friend just told me about Topaz Gigapixel AI which I will pick up for these momentary hiccups in my common sense.
I wouldn’t get that unless you’re doing monstrous enlargements like I do. If you want to go up 150% even 200% use Photoshop. Use Preserve Details 2.0. I do have and use Topaz Gigapixel AI. It is excellent. But for what I think you’re going to be doing, it’s overkill. The latest version of Photoshop with Preserve Details 2.0 enlarges quite well up to about 200%.
I did see a YouTube video comparing the two and PS seemed to do a very good job. I think the folks at Adobe are well-aware of what others are doing and try to keep Photoshop one-stop shopping, so to speak. These couple of iPhone shots would be enlarged to at least 13×19 or 17×22 and possibly larger.
I could see going up to 17×22 in PS but not larger. When I enlarge in Photoshop, I do it in stages of about 50% at a time. I do judicious smart sharpening at each step.
I’ve done it both ways and have heard various theories as to which is better. There are many proponents of both, of course. My P800 will only take 17×22 although it can accept roll paper pre-cut to a max of @35″ long.
Spell check is so bonkers. Lots of examples. This time it did not recognize “pre” and suggested that I meant “pee”. The dictionary will now recognize “pre”.
It really depends upon the image. In general, I think it’s better to interpolate in smaller steps. It doesn’t give the algorithm as much work to do. I agree. Spellcheck is bonkers. Siri is even more bonkers.
I have not used Siri at all and turned off spellcheck on the phone. I’d rather have an understandable typo than a scandalous substitute.
That is a beautiful fall mood. Almost fairytale like.
Thank you, Maria. It is a bit dreamy. 🙂
So inviting – the forest promises rest and renewal.
Thank you, Eliza. Although just across from the Enfield Lookout, this particular morning was very quiet, not even many folks cruising for deer in the fog, so it was very restful.
Do you dare to venture into the enchanted wood? it casts a beautiful spell! 🙂
But of course. It is delightful enchantment. 🙂
The orangy color of the background haze is just wonderful, and carries the color of the needle-strewn path very nicely.
Thank you, Linda.
What a strange effect, it’s as if the path was a river of fire. Mesmerizing. Just beautiful!
Glad it wasn’t a river of fire, those needles burn fast. 🙂 Thanks, Lynn.
