Daily Image - Sep 2017 Archive - sonofjohan
11 Sep 17	I got the video card issue(s) resolved and also elected to go with a more modern sized monitor, the one I've been using is over a decade in age. Installing it was a real joy in that the setup instructions, 18 languages on a single legal sized sheet of paper, neglected a few pertinent steps which I figured out after realizing that they had been "overlooked."  27 inch (diagonal of course) and curved, it does make working on images a lot easier.  Today's submission is the first from that new monitor/video card combo. Having installed the new stuff I again ran the new software, a work in progress, only to get basically the exact same speed results, and this time using a more than 10x faster video card. So me thinks my system was not the problem, but any excuse to upgrade the tool set is always appreciated. The shot I'm sharing is from the same visit I made in June to Fort Worden to see the tall ships and taken while waiting for them to arrive and do their thing. I learned a few days ago from one of our church friends that this"fleet" of vessels do this on a regular basis and you can purchase tickets to be on the ships while they perform.  May have to give that a go one of these days and get some close up shots of the "battle."

The day of the shoot the weather was a bit on the gloomy side so I have attempted to give it a little life. It looks very different on the screen of this mailbox than it does on the graphics box so I don't know how it will appear on your screen.     Nikon D500; 18 - 200; Aperture priority; ISO 500; 1/2500 sec @ f / 8.  

I pray that none of you are being unduly affected by any of these multiple hurricanes!
