Photo Phun

Along the country road that my husband and I take to church, there are a few things we drive by that I always think, "I need to get a picture of that some time." Today, since I was out that way mailing a few things, I brought my camera along so that I could finally stop thinking about it ;)

One of the gates at which I like to envision doing a photoshoot really isn't interesting on its own, so I didn't shoot that. Maybe when I have a human subject to work with. But without further ado, here are the shots I got.

I had never seen this tire before. I'm not sure if it was recently placed there or if I just never noticed it. I went a couple of different routes with the editing, but I like the second one better.
I LOVE the patina on this gate. I couldn't get out of the car to take a picture of it because the road was narrow at this point with nowhere to pull off. So I quickly shot this out the window with a very anxious person in the SUV behind me riding my tail. I happen to like the effect :)
I added an antique layer for funsies. I'm pretty happy with it.

I like the second pass on each of the photos. Very nice. ;)

They're not "passes;" they're just different versions :) Thanks.

Yeah, that tire has been there "forever"...I've thought the same thing over the years, but never have gotten a "good" camera. Good Job!

I wish I knew how to edit photos properly!
