Here is another shot of the onions. When we first saw this crop we wondered if Yuma was now growing poppies!
And yes, this is the same farm land as in the previous photo… just shows how changing your point of view can change the shot.
I used Topaz Detail Desaturate Blush Detail with adjustments.
I am starting to feel a bit more comfortable with the new job and finally am starting to get out a bit on the weekends. Yesterday we drove down to Algadones, Mexico to get my teeth cleaned. To get there we pass through Yuma, AZ. One of our favorite activities driving into Yuma or even into Blythe, California is to see what vegetables are being grown. The Colorado River allows these communities to farm the desert.
These are onions plants in nice neat rows. Below you can see the trick to how these rows are maintained.
The top photo was processed in Topaz Adjust – color pop setting with some adjustments done in Aperture before and after. The bottom photo is processed in Aperture alone.
I am disappointed in myself … I forgot to look at my camera settings and just started to shoot when Carl pulled over to the side of the road. Thus the aperture was only at f/4 for the top photo. The Canon Powershot SX10 has limited aperture range and the best I could have done was f/8.. but still.

Topaz DeNoise cleaned up this noisy jpeg image amazingly well.

Bread half gone so quickly! Used Topaz DeNoise… this time I turned on the debanding… in Aperture, I cropped, painted definition on the bow in the background and parts of the bread and fine tuned the exposure.
