Little waterfall

This is one I had completely forgotten about.  I took it back in January at the Umlauf Sculpture Garden in Austin.  I was walking around trying some different camera tricks and when I saw this little stream and waterfall I just knew I had to get the shot.  Waterfalls are really fun to shoot, especially in HDR, and with a couple of the exposures using that slow shutter the result is that silky smooth water motion thing - you know what I'm talking about.  I am gonna have to go find some more waterfalls - I'm all fired up now!

The rhino and I know...

Using software to fix or enhance an image is standard practice.  In this case, I didn't fix anything and you can argue that I didn't enhance anything either.  But, I sure as heck made this shot look a whole lot different, and that's all this is about.  It's fun to take something and make it look entirely different, especially when the initial image is bland, boring and uninteresting.  So, I gave into the temptation of a few software programs, and this is the result.  For the record, the rhino likes his new look...
