I HDR’d my little buddy! He’s over 20 feet up in that pine tree and his Mama might be used to it, but I’m not!!

Dedicated to all you Mothers that are raising rambunctious little boys!!

2 photos taken with -1, 0 exposures (the 3rd one was too fuzzy) and combined in Photomatix Pro 4.0 using the Grunge setting with High Smoothing. Smoothed more in Picnik. Taken with my Canon Rebel XTi and the 55-250 lens.

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

    How cute. I use to do this to my mom when I was a kid and give her heart attacks. I raised 2 boys and that is why I’m gray now!!!

  • He was showing me everything that afternoon – and as he went up that tree I was holding my breath with my hand over my mouth going “oh no, oh no” THEN I said, “HOLD IT” – then I ran and got the camera!! LOL

    Yep, those boys can sure give you LOTS of gray hairs!!
