What would a picture blog be without the obligatory picture of a lonely horse? Well here it is. Found this lonely guy in the middle of the rice paddies. I think he needs a friend. Amber surely wanted to be that friend being from Idaho and possessing two X chromosomes and all. She absolutely loves horses.
I have been playing around with the Nik Software Suite trial and this is another one of the results, the first being the previous picture in my blog. I am really enjoying this software.. A lot! I use a lot of layers to experiment with my pictures before moving on to the next step, and now I basically just scroll through a ton of filters that automatically show me what it will look like. The best part is that is applies the filters as a layer, so you can adjust the blending to your hearts content using this method. The sharpening plug in is so far the best sharpener I have used yet. Definitely expensive, but I think this is going to be worth it.
