A great one day trip to a special place in Scotland.

A few weeks ago I went to Scotland for the day. Normally I would say that you need at least a week there to make it worth the journey from Manchester (as most of you live much further away I'd say two weeks). Anyway, a lifetime is not long enough to photograph the beauty of this great country. This time though the trip was organized by a friend and it turned out that one day was perfect. We went to one specific place: Ailsa Craig.

Nik Software and Me

Being a novice photographer still, my images need "saving" many times over. Whereas I see the subject and composition in my mind when shooting, I still have some good ole Photography 101 skills to learn to insure the best exposure and sharpness. For a couple of years I worked with Photoshop CS 3 and 4 to try to learn and master the subtle tools to improve my images. Although I had some success, it was frustrating taking the time and energy to get to the outcome I desired. I tried a few other plug-ins over the past couple of years, but not until I ran across Nik Software was I truly "liberated"!  I am not familiar with other contemporary tools in the market today, but I know with Nik Software, I can achieve pretty much what I want and I do it in about 90% of the time needed in other applications. Easy, fast and highly effective.

Below is my review of Nik Software. I encourage everyone to give it a try. You can download the demo at They also have excellent tutorials and videos to show how easy the products are to use. Although a bit pricey it pays for itself over and over again. It frees me to do more out in the field!! I hope you find this review useful.
