While the band was playing at the Tiki Hut I made myself at home wandering around taking shots of the Marina and the dock area. I found these folks in a boat and this young lady fishing off the dock made interesting subjects…..

Taken July 3, 2011 at lake Keowee in Seneca, South Carolina, with my Canon Rebel XTi, 3 photographs with different exposures, combined in Photomatix Pro 4.0 using the Painterly settings, medium smoothing, and a few other tweaks.

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
