HDR, Tilt-Shift and Family Blog is Locked

Well, I finally did it. I locked my family blog. If you want an invite, send me an e-mail or leave a message.

Just for fun, I had some time last night to play with some of my pictures in Photoshop. Here is a picture I took while in Seattle:
Seattle-Tilt-Shift
It is taken from the Space Needle. I applied a "Tilt-Shift" technique to it so that it looks like a model city. Pretty cool huh?

I really like this one. I took this on a hike up a canyon.

Last year, I had the opportunity to go to Chicago. We had many opportunities to ride the trains while we were there. One night, I had my camera and I shot a whole bunch of pictures on the trains and waiting for trains.

I thought this one turned out pretty cool. Looks like a station on my little model train set. It isn't. It is a real train station.

This is my family's cabin. Pretty cool isn't it? We visit it every once in a while. It needs a little work, but there are lots of memories here!

OK, one last Photoshopped picture:

It is the Salt Lake Temple. I applied some HDR effects to this one and did some tone mapping.

Let me know what you think!

The pictures look great! It's amazing that a slight skew can disguise reality.
