Not all African Violets are violet. :o) Here is a very attractive pink one.

Wet Beetle

Armed with my spray bottle, this awesome beetle got a shower on a chunk of exotic wood.  Using three different exposures, it was also given the HDR treatment.

Baby Squirrel

We found this baby squirrel last thursday hurt and with a bloody nose.  We nursed him back to health and watched a couple days later as he climbed back up a large tree.

Old Drawyers Church

HDR stands for high dynamic range in photography.  It allows for a greater range between the lightest and darkest areas of a photograph than standard imaging methods.  This HDR photo of Old Drawyers Church in Odessa, Delaware was taken at 3 different exposures that were merged and run through HDR processing.  The intensity was juiced up a little further before saving.

This second photo shows the same scene, further altered with a Topaz filter.

Watch Guts

These are the first photos using my new macro lens.  They were edited using Topaz filters.
