This is a variation of the photo Twisted Trees that I made last year on Caudell Road in Homer Georgia – I wanted to take the HDR’d photo and experiment with some grungy stuff – just for fun! I took the photo(s) originally with my Canon Rebel XTi, -1, 0, +1 exposures and combined them into Photomatix Pro 4.1, then I desaturated it a bit and added the Texture from Joes Sistah. Please critique – I need it, and don’t go easy! Homer, GA

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

    I love the subtle color tones, a great variation on a wonderful image! Dee

  • Thank you Diane – I think everybody else’s grunge work is so good, but I think mine are just all messed up, so this was an experiment!

    WOW! I love this presentation Chelei. Congratulations on another feature.

  • Thank you – it’s one of my faves just because of those strange limbs – when it snows I’m going to get a shot with the snow on it!
