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:
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.

Wow... those photos are breathtaking! I love the train station! Hey, I was going to read your family blog but now I'm locked out... Is it okay if we blog stalk you?? If it is, send me an invite! Thanks!

Thanks guys! It is fun to post process photographs to get varied results. I would love to add any and all friends and family to the locked family blog.
