The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page. – St. Augustine
Hey there Flickr peeps, facebookers, and blog fans! Sorry I haven’t been round these here parts with the images lately, but the cup has been a bit full lately. Seems like we barely get one event finished and its time for the next one. Not complaining of course, just sayin’
For more on what I do in the season here in South Florida, check out this site:
So anyway, about the image…….my other passion in life……
I decided to post a couple this evening of the same scene. Taken in New England this fall as I was chasing the color, this scene called out to me as I slammed on the brakes and swerved off the road to get a quick capture.
I tortured it a bit in photomatix, photoshop, and topax to get this kind of “painterly” effect. I then used a couple of presets on the one below to get a completely different look. Not sure which one I like most, so I decided to share them both.
Incidentally, I originally started this post a few days ago but had a few problems uploading. Some mystery problems with the hosting server, but its all fixed for now. I won’t mention the company cause their customer service rocks and they fixed the problem pretty quick.
Its good to be back 🙂
