Adobe Photoshop USM Eliminating The Halo Technique
Text & Photographs By Philip Tulin  © All rights reserved.

When the Unsharp Mask is applied to the entire photograph, there is a possibility of color shifts, halos and other unforgiving results. Using this very easy technique will add more sharpness without leaving the nasty halos. Try it, it really works.

Gorgeous Skies At The Salt Pond In Eastham On Cape Cod.

The skies were magnificent as we hiked the Salt Pond Trail, also known as Nauset Marsh Trail, the other day.  I took a horizontal photograph and thought that it looked pretty. The sky and clouds were spectacular.  And then I took a vertical one. Wow! What do you think?

Loved This Great Blue Heron Stalking His Next Meal On Cape Cod.

The Great Blue Heron is my very favorite bird! I love its features and the majestic way it moves. We were walking the Salt Pond Trail and saw this Great Blue looking for his next meal. Beautiful bird, don’t you think?

Gorgeous Sunset Over Cape Cod Bay At Boat Meadow

Last night’s sunset was just beautiful! I was heading out to the post office when I saw the colorful hues on the horizon and made a detour to Boat Meadow Beach. The sun was just setting on the horizon. Maybe this is the beginning of those spectacular winter sunsets! So pretty, don’t you think?
