    • Funny you say that, I’m sure we’ve discussed this before. All digital photos need some post-processing. The technology is not able to truly capture what our eye sees. I also prefer how to keep things more natural though. These overly silky images, along with HDR that is over the top isn’t my cup of tea. I was playing around with the Lightroom software to learn more features of it. It truly is an amazing software and so much easier to use than Photoshop Elements or CS6

      • Well, no film camera can capture what our eyes see exactly either. But, that never stops me from trying. πŸ˜‰

        You and I approach what we photograph differently, and that’s OK, it’s part of the beauty of photography. I do love and respect your work, even though it is outside of what I do. I have decided that I am looking at too many other “photography” blogs that are having a negative effect on me, and I’m going to leave it at that. Keep up the fantastic work!

    • You have such a creative nature that looks for true meaning in life, that photography really helps you stop and truly see what you’re looking at. BTW…the idea of the Project 365? Take a new photo each day. The result – by the end of the year you’re a better photographer. πŸ™‚
      Now you may not like me so much…I’ve given you a homework assignment.
