I have learned that even the most ordinary picture can be rescued with a little tweakage. The software available to work with digital photography provides a wide range of settings. With lots of experimentation, a little patience, I made this interesting image out of grey skies November shot.
This late November weekend, the weather was unusually warm, so I left the housework and yard work behind to take a little drive. I enjoy local hikes and have heard of the Huyck Preserve many times. What a treat to be outside wearing just a light sweatshirt instead of being bundled up in hats and mittens. I spent so much time taking different shots of this waterfall, there were some folks lined up behind me waiting their turn…lots of people had the same idea to get out and enjoy it while we can….
After many months of using free photo editing software, I finally purchased Photoshop Elements. Many of the features are the same, but there is so much more…I can’t stop editing! Pictures that were just average, can be transformed. I love creating panoramic files as a truer reminder of the beautiful landscape views I’ve experienced.
I have never seen the side door to a “house” look so impressive. The grounds of the Vanderbilt Mansion are beautifully maintained with a huge variety of trees and formal gardens. A visit in late Spring is something to look forward to. I am sure the owners wanted to get out and enjoy them in any direction.
