A beautiful street in Old Corfu Town, Greece, on a wonderfully hot and sleepy afternoon in July of 2005. Looking closely, you can see the tourists heading our way from down the street.

Handheld image taken with the Olympus C-5000 zoom on July 27, 2005. Shutter 1/250, aperture f/5.6, exposure 0.00, iso 50. In other words, totally automatic and if I’d had to explain what a shutter speed was in those days, I couldn’t have done it!! This image was put through photoshop to remove distracting electrical lines, then popped into Photomatix, single image at +/- 2 eval.

    A stunning shot, Lois. Thank you so much for explaining how you achieved this. I am just getting started on photoshop and haven’t even tries Photomatix yet. I am inspired!!! This is gorgeous!

  • Oh, Marjie, you sweetheart!!!!!! Photoshop is SO MUCH FUN!!! Don’t be afraid of it!!! Just stick a shot in there and start playing around!!!!! I love it!!! The Photomatix is fun too … but it is tricky!!!! Sometimes I get it right, sometimes I THINK I get it right, and sometimes … not at all, lolol!!!!!
