40. Shot In HDR

I’m afraid I have slipped a few weeks behind in my 52 week challenge. I have spent part of my day revisiting photos that I have taken over the last few months. I have been looking  to see if any that will fit some of my unused themes. I found this one and applied some HDR effects but then also used some new sharpening technics I learned last week at a workshop in Tampa. I think it’s fun, especially with HDR, to not process all your photos at the time you take them. It’s fun to go back later and try new things!

47. The S Curve

On one of my recent trips with Mary Nell I grabbed this photo while on a walk near a local Chattanooga landmark.  I was bringing up the rear of the group, of course, because every couple steps I would find something so beautiful I felt compelled to take another photo.

27. Lost/Forgotten Items

While visiting Mary Nell in Chattanooga, TN we  explored an old barn with our cameras. I saw these old bottles sitting along the wall and loved how the light made the liquid inside seem to glow.  We managed to snap off quite a few photos considering both Mr. Impatiences were waiting for us in the car!

8. Distortion

I spent this past weekend kicking around Chattanooga, TN with my friend and fellow blogger Mary Nell. We both had some really fun and creative ideas that we collected photos for.  I have been wanting to try this fun technic I learned about recently at a photoshop workshop. It’s called Polar Planets. To start you need a nice panoramic photo that you can match up really nice on the ends. I thought this barn photo would be a good candidate. It’s only my second attempt so it isn’t perfect.

I thought you might like to see the original image as well. You can see just how much distortion I added!
