A Day at the Beach

These photos were taken on Saltburn beach one late summer evening. As I was processing the raw files I was amazed at how dirty either the lens or the sensor were at the time of taking. One thing that Aperture does particularly well is ‘cleaning’ up photos of spots, dirt, people(!), or whatever maybe in the picture that you want removed.

In fact, I reckon that if I’d left the dots/spots in, I could have joined them together and made a picture which probably would have turned out as a lion or elephant just like the in the join the dots books you had as a child!

You’ll be pleased to know that since the photos were taken I have mastered the art of cleaning a sensor on a dSLR, although it is not a job I particularly like doing; I am always worried I’ll break the camera!!!
