Right now I have a favorite subject as well as a favorite effect. I'm sort of stuck on nature photos, namely the woods that surround those of us that are lucky (cursed?) enough to live in Calhoun County WV. I'm also loving taking photos of any water that shows reflections of it's surroundings.
Anyway, here are a few of the many photos that I have taken recently. Hope you enjoy looking at them, and please, if you get some pleasure from viewing these photos, leave me a comment and let me know. (It gets really depressing when I go to all of the trouble of posting this stuff and no one seems to notice.)
The following pictures were taken in a hollow close to my friend Esther's home. We went for a walk and I saw some things that I thought were beautiful, so I took the pictures.
The first picture in each set is the original picture. The second picture is the one that I have added the effects. I personally like the "soft" look of these pictures, I find them much more interesting than the originals.
