The “D” stories went live yesterday

. . . and if you read them, you have an opportunity to vote for your favorite HERE. That’s also where you can find links to the stories so that — you know — you can read them before you vote.

Right, done with that.

This is a photo from last week . . .

For these posts, I like playing with the photos . . . or, in this case, photo.

PanosFx sketch action plus other stuff.

This next photo is the combination of the sketch photo and the original with the blending set on “difference”.

Of course, I’m also going to use Topaz Lab’s Glow and Impression plugins . . .

You can click on those for a larger version but I also put them in THIS SmugMug gallery. I’ll be adding to that gallery as I play with more heron photos.

Plus, here’s the gallery of the above versions.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
