I could not resist this lone tree in the midst of the Canola.

This photo was taken in Lavonia, Georgia with my Canon Rebel XTi, and processed with Photomatix Pro – Tonemapped, Grunge (tweaked).

I am The Accidental Photographer – anything you see here that you like is a product of my curiosity and creative mind, and the photography I have very much learned by trial and error. Please feel to critique as I have no other way to learn otherwise!

I’ve had my very own “real” camera for 1 year – and I’ve loved every day of them

    Beautiful composition,Chelei♥ the colors are all so bright and vivid, I don’t know how to do all the editing you mentioned,but you sure do a great job! fav.:o)) God Bless,Mae

  • If you ever want to do any HDR work I recommend the Photomatix Pro – it is simple AND affordable! You put your camera’s settings to take 3 photos at one time, with different spacing – usually -1, 0, +1 and it picks up the lights and darks and midtones in all the photos, then combined it brings out the best in all of them.

    Have you ever seen 2 photos taken about the same time, different angles or whatever, and one had a beautiful sky, but the scenery was blah, and vice-versa? This gets the best of the different exposures. I think that’s how it works!
