Learning New Stuff!

September 26, 2011

It's a lovely morning here in my little part of the world.  The sun is shining, and it looks like it will be a warm day.  Just what my soul needs!  Sunshine and warmth!  Tootsie and I will definitely get out for a little while today.  Maybe we'll take a ride to the park to see if our friendly commorant is still there.

The other night I worked on a photo lesson about HDR.  Because I don't have my HDR program installed in my laptop, I did it the long way in Photoshop.  It's not my best, but you can see the difference in the photos.  I'm also learning how to do a "mouseover."   Here's my first try.  Roll mouse on the picture to see the "BEFORE".  It's very subtle, mostly in the brightness of the greens.

I hope this thing worked.  You have to post the blog before you can click on it.   This opens up all sorts of new things that I can do.  This makes me happy because I just love learning new things.

I also have a couple of photos to share of a really interesting seed pod.  In it's heyday, this was a gorgeous white clematis climbing all around the mailbox. 

See, if you look you can find beauty just about anywhere!   I took photos of other pods, but I'll save them for another day.  This week I want to try more of the HDR.  I'll have to use my tripod though.  It makes it easier to get all the photos exactly the same.  Handheld does not do this.  At least for me.

Now I'm off to get Tootsie her morning meds.  She's already looking for a place to hide!  You just gotta love her!  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a magnificent day.

Hugs, Edna B.
