Just a shot out the back door. Wish I could walk out in the yard without scaring him away,but I can't yet. I'll keep trying. Neal said I could use his deer blind and set out there and wait but I didn't like that

Red Knock Out Rose

I forgot that I promised to post the color version of this beauty. I can't wait to see if they all survive the winter. They have really bloomed pretty this summer.

Another Vignette

With the elliptical marquee click in center of image hold the control and ault keys as you drag the selection into the shape you want. Inverse....Feather ( I did 20 depends on size of image) on a new layer fill selection with black or color you want. You can also do a levels adjustment on the selection to make darker on the image layer. I tried that but I didn't like it.

Vignette my way

This is the only way I have done a vignette. Don't really use them much.
Select photo....Contract around 35.......Feather around 20......Inverse selection.....New layer above photo........Fill selection with black.......Select photo again.......On Vignette layer hit delete.......Lower opacity.
Another way I can't help you but I'm sure you will find something if you do a search.

Poor Man's HDR...LOL

Playing around love this image but not necessarily the processing...LOL..just liked how it made the fog look like blue smoke! Got to get off here...all for to be done!

My favorite image of the day...I'd like to have stayed and took a few more but it was early and the dogs were raising a ruckus! Didn't want anyone to call the cops on a prowler! LOL

And, yes, the sun is a bit blown....can't figure out how to avoid it.

Foggy Saturday Morning

Christmas lights are up, going to put on the finishing touches this am and then pick up the last of the leaves in the yard. It was 'smack in your face' foggy this morning and I got out with the camera again. I'm going to post a few that I do like. This one, I know the light is blown but I still like it.

After the Rain

A shot I got this morning. The fog lifted before I got out there, so this shot isn't as good as I imagined. I'm going to send it in for my assignment and if it gets a bad grade, I'm giving up and moving on. I'm tired of not getting images that are 'correct'...I'm going back to shooting images for my pleasure only!

Eastern Hemlock

At least I'm pretty sure it's an Eastern Hemlock. Took this one out front this afternoon while waiting on Zack to get off the bus.
Button, ribbon, and tags from DDE.

Last of the Fall Colors

One of the shots I got last week on my photo walk. I'm about ready to put my camera's up on Ebay....I get so frustrated and wish I'd stuck with my point and shoot and never read a single photo least then I was clueless as to how bad my shots were. Now, I continually critic my own photos and feel like I've lost the joy of my hobby. I want to get back to taking shots and loving them....just for myself! I'm just getting depressed now....winter is setting in and I'm not ready! LOL

Pioneer Women Cooks

This arrived last week and I'm still looking it over but its an awesome cook book! I love her writing and her recipes. She gives you insight into her life on the ranch and her family plus includes tons of photos of her recipes. Best cookbook I've ever purchased!

Stepping back in Time

Found this image on my last quest to take a B/W image that would qualify for the assignment. Didn't get anything else to send it but liked how this turned out.
