The Oregon Coast.
From Mexico to Canada, the drive along the Pacific Ocean is one of the longest scenic drives in the country. The highway doesn’t, however, hug the coast as there are several places where it moves inland and you wouldn’t know there’s an ocean not too far away.
In an earlier post here, I featured another view from just south of the point in the photo above. We are about 10 minutes drive north of the Oregon viewpoint featured in that Cellpic Sunday post. There are plenty of places along the way to stop and grab a photo or two of the ocean.
About this photo: Well, actually, I captured two images at this pull-off. I used Lightroom to stitch them into a panoramic image and then processed an image that was over 21000 x 9000 pixels. Once I sent it off to Luminar Neo, the program took quite some time to do the processing. At one point, I clicked on AI Masking to mask the terrain. Neo crashed. That’s the first time I’ve seen Neo fail to complete an operation. I reloaded the image from Lightroom and this time Neo handled the tweaks I wanted to make. Exporting the file back into Lightroom took an amazing amount of time. I used it wisely as I had a phone call to make. By the time I was done on the phone, the image was back in Lightroom and ready for me to upload here and to my Flickr site in 2K HD. If you click on the image above, you can see it full scale on Flickr.
One other thing I’ve noticed about Lightroom is that when exporting larger images, even though I’ve selected to have the image watermark in the lower left corner, Lightroom doesn’t apply the watermark. You’ll notice that this is the case with this image. Note: I think this bug is fixed by the time you read this.
I encourage fellow bloggers to create their own Cellpic Sunday posts. I never have a specific topic for this feature, and the only rules are that the photo must be captured with a cell phone, iPad, or another mobile device… If you have an image from a drone or even a dashcam, that’s acceptable as well. The second rule is to link your challenge response to this post or leave a comment here with a link to your post in the comment.

That would be a great drive 🙂
John, is there an advantage of stitching two photos together rather than using the panoramic feature on the phone camera? The Oregon coastline is magnificent and your image captured it beautifully.
Good question, Suzanne. I think stitching gives a more geometric perspective than some of the early panoramic tools in cell phones. The phones have improved, though, so I doubt there is a big advantage to stitching in post production. Just a guess on my part.
I think that with stitching there can be less distortion than a panoramic original. In any case your photo is wonderful, and those beautiful clouds converge nicely with those rocks.

Looks like a gorgeous area of the OR coast, John. Marsha and I visited a bit of it when we visited Tillamook last month. Got a nice pic of the Cape Meares Lighthouse. https://secondwindleisure.com/2022/10/23/sunday-stills-through-a-glass-darkly/
I haven’t been to the Oregon coast for many, many years, but I still remember its beauty. Thanks for the reminder. Here’s my contribution. (I actually remembered in advance.) 🙂
It is, indeed!!

That sky was simply stunning for you. Gorgeous photos stitched together 😀 😀
Here is my entry for this week.
It was a beautiful sky, for sure! Thanks, Cee!
Fantastic photo! You’ve done a great job with putting two pictures together! It looks amazing.
Thank you, Linda!
It is a lovely spot!
What a beautiful, long drive! Incredible image of the coastline.
Thanks, Amy. It’s a wonderfully photogenic drive.
Thank you for your thoughts on Lightroom in this situation.
It’s of great help.

Definitely a great stopping point. It was a nice day for you.
A beautiful drive along the coast, for sure, Donna!

Great vista, John 👏 The phone has done well to pick up the vastness of the Ocean & sky above 😃
[…] Hi all 😃 This is my latest post for John’s Cellpic Sunday. […]
Gorgeous, John 🙂
How much time it actually took to get transferred back to lightroom?
With the help of my saved presets, the entire process took maybe 5 minutes or a bit more.
That’s not bad.

I notice that on either Bridge or Lightroom I can’t put a watermark. I go on and off about watermarks. Sometimes I’m gung-ho because I had a blogger friend design me a beautiful one. Then I get tired of taking the extra step to use it and just use the automatic one that comes when you save the picture. Sometimes I do nothing. I’m moody or maybe it’s fickle! I usually don’t worry that someone might copy me, then I had someone copy my post and post it as their own, and felt violated, so I guess I do care. Sorry for the ramble here, John. My post is coming out tomorrow. I’ve got it linked. 🙂
I had problems with large pixel files in Lightroom for quite a while, and I started using Luminar’s layers to superimpose my watermark, but it is more work.
At some point, I discovered Lightroom’s latest updates seem to be working with watermarks again.
As they say, your mileage may vary. >grin<
I haven’t used Luminar, so I’m limited in that respect. Terri uses Pic Monkey and likes it a lot. When I do use a watermark, I place it in Canva, which is another process and website. So, is it worth the trouble?
It is a lot of trouble, but I do it anyway.
OK, I might have to quit being so lazy, but you haven’t quite sold me yet. 🙂 I like my lazy life. 🙂 Have fun in your last day in Italy. I hope you get home ok. I miss having you guys living so close! 🙂
