Space Shuttle Discovery

Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center
Smithsonian Air and Space Museum
Chantilly, Virginia

Our little group spent a day wandering around this place. This shot has its flaws, most especially camera shake, but at this size it looks decent enough, I guess. I used the method #Topaz gave a bit of publicity last week, using a high pass filter and #TopazDenoise to sharpen a noisy photo, and it also helped to disguise some of the camera shake, if you don't look too closely.

I also clone-stamped a couple of people out of the scene, as their presence didn't advance the story in the photo. Also used were #Lightroom5 and Adobe Camera Raw as a filter in #PhotoshopCC . For all the improvements, I still had to do size reduction to hide the very apparent problems- even if you know about them now for having read this far!

Get Your Kids Vaccinated!

A Public Service Announcement

It's done with humor, but the problem they are addressing is very real. I especially like the line, "Remember when you got polio? No. You don't. Because your parents had you vaccinated."
