A quiet Autumn Lagoon, on a late afternoon. A young buck is looking back over his shoulder because of a noise that he heard. Who would dare disturb the quiet of this small spot.
Original image taken at River Bridge near Union Creek in Southern Oregon.
Image processed using various Topaz Software and Captain Kimo’s actions and layers in Photoshop CS6. The oil painting filter was applied to the final background image. The image of the young buck was added as a composite image. The birds were applied with a photoshop brush by Distressed Textures.

I’m a 66 year old retired grandmother that loves photography. I love being out in nature and love lots of color, so Autumn is my favorite time of year.
Forests and forest light, waterfalls, flowers and insects are also some of my favorite subjects to photograph.
