My first shot (pun intended) at HDR. I downloaded the trial version of Photomatix to see if I liked it (see watermarks for proof of being cheapish). Love it to death. Tried so many freeware HDR programs that were absolute crap. When finances change I will make the purchase.
These shots are from a country themed restaurant/bar down the road from us. Lots of good subject matter to shoot.
Feel free to comment, good or bad. I’m looking for the input.
Peace and Happy Mothers Day!

Bush and Dick Cheney. Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello, (a close friend of Young’s), shared his thoughts on the letter. “I think that letter is the most effective piece of anti-war literature written in 50 years,” he told us.
She misses him so much, her best friend. He’s only been gone a day. It’s going to be a long dark road. I feel so bad for her.
My best friend is still here, and we can offer support. But her days will turn to night without the care of it.

A great simulator - move the sliders to see how aperture iso, shutter speed, etc. enhance or destroy the photo. If you’re unsure about manual mode this will be a big help!
So I’m puttzin’ around o Google+ trying to find tips to sharpen my amateur photography skills. Here are some good tips for those that are like me with this hobby…
But #8 really made me laugh.
“8. Go outside & shoot photos rather than spending hours a day on photography forums.” ha!
