Ruby Beach & Beyond

I just returned from an 8 day road trip to Yosemite meaning tons of new pics to add to my ever growing backlog. Thankfully Seattle winter weather has arrived which gives me the time to catch up on all that picture processing.  Besides the upcoming star photography tutorial for Photoshop, I would love some ideas on other tutorials you guys/gals would find helpful? Leave your thoughts in the comments section or shoot me an email.
The Shot
Besides being a great place to take star photography, Ruby Beach Washington is also great for sunsets and rises as well as relaxing. This shot was taken an hour before sunset which allowed for some great light and amazing colors.

Photomatix was not used to process this shot believe it or not. It was done using my new Cross Process  presets then manually blended together in Photoshop… Gotta try different styles to keep it fresh. Keep an eye out for my new presets scheduled to hit shelves in the next few weeks.
I spent 2 weeks on the East Coast this past month, traveling through Philly, Maryland and then the Big Apple. Along the way I was able to catch 2 electronic music festivals and snap off 3000 or so pictures… Here is the first I have published from the Top of the Rock in NYC. I have also included some of the music I listened to while processing this shot…. Dear New York
