I had been lost here before, but this time I had the camera! This was taken on the west side of Toccoa, Georgia somewhat off of the beaten path. I took 3 photos with my Canon Rebel, XTi -1, 0, +2 exposure settings, and combined them in Photomatix Pro 4.0 using the Painterly settings tweaked a bit. Then I took it to this new program called The Smart Photo editor and took out a power line, then literally looked at 84 pages of effects with the photo. I don’t know exactly which one this is – I believe it’s a combination of the Sunset setting and one more that I can’t remember. Then I took it to Picnic where I straightened it up and used the Dodge Tool to get some of the overly HDR’d sky toned down, then I took it to PS4 where I changed the image size.

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
