I have great news to share! Our friends at Topaz will be releasing the brand new CLARITY sometime late next week. I have an advance copy and WOW, Topaz has done it again. So, what does it do? It adds POP (contrast) to your image in a VERY NATURAL way with abundant control. Different than Detail and more refined than Adjust. It also has an HSL (Hue Saturation Luminosity) tab which allows tight control of the color in your image. Lots of presets too. Trust me on this, CLARITY will become your go to program for adding color and POP (contrast pop) to your images moving forward. Why, because of the new proprietary algorithm written just for this program. It is what makes the adjustments look so natural. No halo’s or over-affected look. Check back later next week for details about the price and release here or on the TOPAZ LABS WEBSITE.
BALL-HEADS FOR SALE A friend has asked me to sell two back-up ball-heads. I have both in my possession and they are both in brand new condition. One is the Really Right Stuff BH-55 LR, the other the coveted Arca Swill B-1 which is hard to find. The price for the BH-55 LR (lever release) is $360.00 plus $15.00 for shipping. For the Arca Swiss with screw type plate (not quick release) $300 plus shipping. Two great ball-heads for about $100 less than new and in new condition.
The first image here is processed with CLARITY and finished with Detail. The image below this one is the before image with just RAW processing applied.
