Playing with Topaz Suite

A quick post of me taking the Winter Scene from the December Calendar, and playing with some of the filters in the Topaz Suite.

Here is the original photo.

There are many, many filters . . . and each have sliders and options.  Lots of stuff to play with.  

I will probably start adding one or two with each set of photos I post.  Thanks for stopping by, and remember to check out the SmugMug gallery if interested in a better view of the details.

Please, if you are considering bestowing me some recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so.  I will decline nominations whereby one blogger bestows an award onto another blogger, or group of bloggers.   I appreciate the intent behind it, but I would much prefer a comment thanking me for turning you away from a life of crime, religion, or making you a better person in some other way.  That would actually mean something to me.

Should you still nominate me, I will strongly suspect you pulled my name at random, and that you are not, in fact, a reader of my blog.  If you wish to know more, please read below.
