    Kids took me to the safari park for Father's Day. I couldn't help but grab a few shots out the drivers window.

    OK - I will be out in So. Cal. in late July early August.

    Seriously though we could go up to Big Sur or some other interesting place on Fri/Sat (Meetings are always on Thursday for some reason)
    If you see me with a wrench, call 911

    I'm all for it. I'm almost certainly around, Europe will be later in August if all works as planned. Let me know when you have dates.
    Anyone else wants to join a west coast meetup?

    It would be interesting to see what this shot would be like if you allow only the eyes to have colour.
    Here's one from the same shoot (different daughter) where I did leave the eyes colored, except on this example I didn't amp up the contrast.

    I agree Mark, it's a little hot on the right side, but I guess I shouldn't expect much different as it was shot with high key in mind and a goal of sort of fading out the right side of her face into the background. Instead, I looked at it and then added the contrast back in post.

    bgood, I love the first daughter shot. Perhaps dial down the saturation on the second one's eyes? The sudden saturation coupled with the enormous pupil doesn't work to my eye.

    The eyes grab you, I have got to try this with a big girl.

    There was a writeup a while back on how to do a quick and dirty version of this in Lightroom. I'd link to it, but I can't seem to find it. (Maybe someone can help me find it.) The PP on this one took me like 90 seconds. Not nearly as good as bgood's images, but it was quick!

    This is my Portrait Entry.

    It's a Bluejay and somewhat ordinary but what struck me about this frame is that I saw a ghostly face in the trees immediately when I saw the image on the back of my camera. Does anyone else see the weird face in the background? It gave me the creeps!

    Good suggestion. I'll have to give it a try and see if it softens the eyes a bit.
