I don’t know why but this has become my favorite place to catch a sunset. This is the pig trail that I go on just about every day of the week, coming and going to work in Homer, GA.

This is dedicated to my friend Viv who is having a Sunset Challenge!

I took 3 photographs with varying exposures using my Canon Rebel XTi, and combined them using Photomatix Pro 4.0 with the Grunge settings tweaked a bit, then I took the photo to Picnik where I straightened it up a bit, added some vibrance, then a touch of the fake Lomo’ish effect – then I took it to PS4 where I changed the size of the photo, then took it back to Picnik where I smoothed the grain out of it.

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
