Pinole Point

Point Pinole Regional Park

This is a picture of one of my favorite parks, Point Pinole Regional Park. I took this picture with my Canon 70-300mm f/4-5.6 L IS Lens and 5D Mark III. I enhanced it with Nik Software, which I just got over the week-end. I’m anxious to use it on more pictures and hope to get even better results.

So, why fight the traffic and stand in line when you can just order it, stay home, and wait for it to be delivered! It’s a bargain, too, at only $29.00. A number of enhancements allows the OS to tap into the processing power of multiple CPU and graphics processing cores to boost software performance. In other words, it’s not just cosmetic changes, but actual improvements “under the hood”, which should allow for greater improvement. I guess we’ll find out.
