04-18-2015 "Tear Drops"  One of the blooms on my iris after a hard rain.  With the petals drooping and water droplets it made me think is was sad and crying.  I really appreciate you taking the time to comment on my photos.  They are always welcome. Donna

Painted Lady Butterfly...  This pretty butterfly was busy flying around our lemon tree and its blossoms a few days ago. As I was trying to get a shot, it landed on the bark near the tree. I was able to get a couple of shots, this is one of them. I particularly liked the shadow...  Thanks for your views and comments! Critiques always welcome...  April 18, 2015

I'm continuing my exploration of what is available in my various new photo-editing toys.  It would take a lifetime to learn all the capabilities, but as long as each day brings a new experience, I'm happy.  This is a rather ordinary scene of late-blooming zinnias and verbena rendered more dramatic with the application of one of the styles or effects or filters in the Topaz Labs Impression package.  The effect is 'Chiaroscuro', with some tweaking of the sliders and a blend mode change within that package, as opposed to being within Photoshop.  Back in PS, I added a tiny touch of poster edges, which brings up the brush strokes in the underlying filter.  For comparison, see the regular version here: http://smu.gs/1AsPCzc   DP061-2015  Posted Monday, March 2;  processed March 1  Taken at the Gateway Garden at the Matthaei Botanical Gardens, Ann Arbor, October 6, 2014  Title:  Chiaroscuro - Light and Shadow
April 5, 2009  4:28pm    Final game in Ice Breaker Tournament.  Taylor waited all day for this opportunity.  Up to bat - hit and ran to first.  Stole 2nd. Batter hits a ball infield - Taylor steals 3rd and home and got to do what she loves...sliding home...SAFE!  Played 3 games: won 2 and tied 1.  Overall a great weekend.    F/11.0, 1/250, 85mm, ISO 200, AV
