Pier 39 is a waterfront complex on the wharf right on San Francisco Bay with outstanding view of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and the Bay Bridge. One of the attractions on the pier is the San Francisco Carousel. The carousel was handcrafted in Italy and has hand paintings of famous San Francisco landmarks such as Lombard Street, Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge.
TOPAZ LENS EFFECTS PROMOTION
Because I was away last week I didn’t have time to prepare a proper review for Topaz Lens Effects but I wanted to let you know of a promotion that Topaz Labs is running right now. Until July 31st you can get 50% off Lens Effects ($79.99 to $39.99). Use PROMO CODE julylens. If you want to get an idea of what this wonderful plug-in does check out one of Topaz Labs upcoming webinars dedicated to Lens Effects. You can check a couple of my previous posts where I’ve processed images using Lens Effect here and here.
Lens Effects highlights include:
- Bokeh (blur) to minimize undesired backgrounds and foregrounds
