This is a combination of 2 of my favorite photos. The original photo was taken of the mill, 3 images -1, 0 +1 exposures, and processed in Photomatix using the Grunge settings with high smoothing – then I noticed that it was the same general coloring of another image that I processed of a fence and hydrangeas on the lake road, so just for fun I put both photos in PS4 and made sure they were the same size, then clone stamped the hydrangea fence into the Mill photo. THEN I took it to Picnik where I bumped up the colors on the hydrangeas – Just for fun…..

The original photos were all taken with my Canon Rebel XTi in 2 neighboring counties, Habersham and Rabun Georgia.

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
