Far from Home

Playing with Topaz Adjust and loving it! Applied HDR Pop, reduced the opacity and used the multiply blend. The frame was created in Essentials 3. This should be my last photo from our trip out west this past year – at least for blogging purposes!

Innocence

Converted this to black & white in Lightroom 3 (my gift to myself). Used a Canon S3 so I had to blur the background a little. The frame was created in Essentials 3.

Winter

This was our first significant snow of the winter. It was (and still is) a nasty one. Cold, snow and a howling wind that won”t quit.  I confess I have yet to go outside. I took this from the warmth of my kitchen. I was fascinated by the snow on the screen on the right. The wind currently is blowing from the left to right as I look outside.

Large – Holiday Large

Yesterday my DH took off from work and we went to NYC. At this time of year New York is alive and exciting. We went to a show, had some dinner and walked around. The tree in Rockefeller Center is always something very special. I think the hundreds of people who were there would say the same thing! Of course I couldn’t go into the city without a camera. I took my old Canon S3 – easier to carry, especially given the crowds. Here is my photo of the tree. I did have to boost the color of the lights. There was no way I could have used a tripod or taken a long exposure. Consequently the lights on the tree needed a little boost!

Looking Up

After Thanksgiving we went to a Train show. My granddaughter loves trains! If she wasn’t being held, she was forced to look up to see them. I applied Topaz Simplify – Watercolor to this photo.
