Corona Del Mar, CA (HDR) & Instagram

Corona Del Mar Volleyball_Talke
From a visit one day to Corona Del Mar Beach in Orange County….a lovely sunset at the Volleyball Court. If you are on Instagram….you can find me at “Peter Talke”….I always put my posts here on Instagram as well….as well as IPhone shots. When I do…my fav filter is XPro II. For some reason it makes pics look cool!! Adds a vignette & some toning that I enjoy. I set out to find if there were any actions for Photoshop? I did find one…but it needed a little extra to get that look….tweaked a tad! Here is my Photoshop Instagram Version.

Laguna Beach, CA – Lifeguard Tower (HDR)

Laguna beach Lifeguard Tower_talke
I took a cruise to Laguna on Thursday nite to grab a few HDR’s and walked around downtown and headed back to my car after sunset. At Main Beach you can find a basketball court, volleyball courts, a cute little wood (boardwalk style) pathway, beautiful beach, restaurants, shops, hotels….you name it is there! Blue hour was happening during my walk back and I took this shot. Laguna rocks!
