I had a great Christmas! How about you?
I like this photo. The vignette looks nice on it. Did you add that, or was that from your lens?
Here's a new shot from this weekend. I'm trying so many variations on lighting and processing, and this is what I've come up with so far. Let me know what you think. I hope you all had a great Christmas weekend!
Thanks John. I tweaked and retweaked it in PS Elements. I tried doing the bracketting shot. I took one photo and my camera shot it in 24 various WB and ISO settings so I tried messing with layering and all that complicated stuff. It's my first attempt at that stuff.
Christmas was a blast for us as well, with the exception of me throwing my back out trying to exit a cave we were exploring.
God is Good through it all!
it sounds like many people on here are using Elements 7. Does anyone know how to successfully do the layering of mulitple shots, like for the HDR photos?

You might be better off if you post a thread in the Photoshop forum. I don't use Elements, so I'm not sure what you can do... Most people use Photomatix for HDR.Originally Posted by DCrutchfield
If you are on a super tight budget (and who's not), you might consider looking for PS 7 or higher on Craig's List or eBay. Although not as featured filled, you should be able to get most heavy lifting tasks done and save a bundle. There is so much to learn in PS and it doesn't matter too much what version you are using - as long as you have PS 7 or higher. The fundementals are mostly the same. Down the line when the time is right, you can upgrade to a more current version.
When I moved to digital photography from film, I got PS 3 on Craig's List for free (a big box of 5 inch floppies!) and then upgraded to PS CS. Since then I think Adobe changed the rules so you can't upgrade from that far back. ;)
Just be careful not to buy copied software.
cool - thanks for the insght!
Here's another shot I've been working on today- A Cottonwood Sunset.
I'm using the PS Elements the best I can. Let me hear your critiques and advise please!
