    FEEL FREE TO USE THESE FOR WHATEVER ;)

    My wife and I decided to take a vacation to Montego Bay area in Jamaica this year, so I grabbed my camera gear to snap some pics.

    I'm not a professional photographer or anything, so I did end up touching up some of these pictures in Lightroom to bring the colors back a bit.

    Also, I have plenty more pictures and will upload them in full HD quality when I get back home from our vacation, since the internet here is slooooooow.

    Hey dude, looks great.
    espacially, for non-professional. :)
    With what program you stitched it together?
    Tip:
    If you can do retouch on PS, then you can straighten up them a little bit and clone sky a little bit more.

    I'll do that when I upload them in full-resolution. I'm not big on copyrighting things, so I'll put em up as a free-to-use license with attribution on the blog and maybe get a few backlinks ;) Either way, the originals are 3k pixels in height and varying in width (i.e. the 3rd one down is 17.4K x 3k)

    Yeah, unfortunately I don't have PS installed on this laptop, just on the one at home and on my desktop. I threw Lightroom on here just as an afterthought and am glad I did, since it opens up my .NEF files no problem :)

    Thanks! And yes, I touched up the pictures to bring them back to life a bit by toning down the shadows, darkening the blacks, and turning the vibrance up a bit. It really is this beautiful here, if it wasn't for the humidity, it would be an awesome place to live
