Artist's Description

After a storm it’s often possible to see great distances from the hilltop park at Signal Hill, a California town that occupies a large hill entirely surrounded by Long Beach. The view here is north to downtown Los Angeles (about eighteen miles away) and beyond. It was so clear on this day that you can even see the Griffith Observatory (left of the high-rise buildings and built into the mountainside, an additional six miles distant). The commercial jet near the top of the frame was not added in Photoshop; the Long Beach Airport is just out of view to the right. (Olympus E-300 & Zuiko 40-150mm kit lens at 150mm, f/4.5, 1/200 sec, ISO 100, late afternoon sun after a storm, handheld; RAW image processed in Photoshop CS6 with Levels and Curves adjustment layers to cut through distant haze and bring out details; further fine-tuning of details and color balance via Topaz Clarity, Detail and ReStyle on separate layers at reduced opacity)
