As I have been saying, it was a bit windy at the Barnegat Jetty on Friday and Saturday. This image was created with the tiipod-mounted Canon EF 800mm f/5.6L IS USM Autofocus lens and the Canon EOS-1D X digital SLR . ISO 50. Evaluative metering +1 2/3 stops as framed: 1/10 sec. at f/14 in Manual mode. Central sensor/AI Servo Surround/Rear Focus AF on the nearest rock on our left and re-compose.

Yesterday was a rough day at BIRDS AS ART. Unbeknownst to us, all BIRDS AS ART sites including the blog and the website were the target of a malicious hacker attack that commenced on Sunday, 23 DEC at 6:10pm. With Peter Kes being Johnny on the spot and with great help from our web hosts, the folks from Empowering Media, everything was under control by midday on Christmas Eve.
Those of you who were mis-directed or received error or virus warnings can click here to safely view yesterday’s post, “Barnegat Miracle.” Apologies to all who were inconvenienced in any way.
Seasons greetings to all from Jennifer, Jim, Peter, and me. Enjoy family and friends, get out and make a few images, and don’t eat too much! Please accept our best wishes for a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2013.

As regular readers here know, Color Efex Pro has drastically changed my digital workflow and little by little I have begun using Viveza to solve sticky image optimization problems.
