    Unfortunately, I don't think I'll get out until this weekend....
    It's starting to get dark way early now!

    By the way Jim, you will most likely have to subscribe to the Creative Cloud if you buy one.

    Ugh.... Oh yeah....hmmmm.... That kind of puts a dimmer on the idea of getting the D850. I am totally happy with plain old CS6.

    It's funny Adobe is maintaining a stand alone Lightroom, but they won't maintain a stand alone Photoshop.

    I will have to think of some alternatives, I really don't want to buy the cloud version.

    If you don't do any raw processing in Photoshop, you can open and edit the files in Nikon Capture NX-D and then open from there into Photoshop.

    Photoshop as part of the Creative Cloud offering does not require you to use the cloud for storage nor does it even require that you be on the internet in order to use it. I have the CC version of Lightroom/Photoshop and don't store anything on Adobe at all. All the hooks for cloud uploads are in the software but I simply use the programs as standalone anyway.

    Copy that! And I use only the Lightroom 'Classic' of the newest update. Haven't updated PS yet as I want to see how to keep the Nik filter family intact. Now that DxO has taken over Nik, there is hope!

    Yep, that's worth mentioning. Or a discussion of the pros and cons.

    The software gets downloaded to your computer, you just pay the subscription, either annually or monthly and use just like CS6.

    If you stop paying, then it will get disabled at some point.

    Hey Alan, it's the monthly fee that gets me. I prefer to pay for my software once and use it as long as I want. To my knowledge, the CC versions periodically (every few months or so, not sure exactly) also does attempt to connect from your computer back to Adobe to verify your account.

    If people want to pay a monthly subscription, that's fine. I just prefer to pay once for software. So that's my main sticking point. Now I might have to just get over it I guess at some point. But for now CS6 still does everything I need, and I have yet to read about any CC upgrades for it that I feel I have missed something. For those who use LR, it's a different case, Adobe has added a lot of upgrades over the last 2 or 3 years to LR, but for Photoshop, unless someone can tell me something they are using in CC that isn't in CS6, there has not been any significant upgrades to it.

    I was rather reluctant to make the jump to begin with but since I was upgrading both Lightroom and Photoshop regularly anyway I decided to do some quick math on what I spend/year ($120) for the subscription vs. slightly more for the upgrades to the two programs and took the plunge. I have not kept track of specific features added since I moved to CC since I get all of them whenever they come out. The only time I don't like CC is if I forget to turn off auto-updates when I go on a road trip and discover my Verizon hotspot bandwidth is being consumed by new versions of the CC apps. With a marginal connection at some locations the CC update will choke the life out of your internet link.

    Picture number one (camera said 4) with the 85mm PC-E. Unfortunately, I had a 24mm on and the sun was casting long shadows of me so I switched. And in the three minutes to switch, the sun went behind the mountain... So it's dull and dreary. Also, very basic processing using Capture NX-D. I'm going to have to get Adobe Creative Cloud rolling...

    Alright Craig.... glad to see that you got one of these. I really like mine, I need to buy another one one in six months or so for my portrait photography business that I hope to start up soon. I’m ready to see your incredible landscape shots with this.

    I think it's time. I may need to let my last D810 go...
