Hi friends, I started playing with a few other recent shots ... I'm a bit addicted to the rich colors you get with HDR. The first picture makes me think it should go with an article about train accidents. The truth is, the area around railroad tracks are littered with all sorts of spooky things, as though it's some post-apocalyptic landscape. While the top pictures were taken earlier this week, the bottom one was taken today. Yep, we went from Spring back to Winter.

You know when you drive by a place several times that seems intriguing, each time vowing the next time you're going to stop? Well, that was my attitude to a new HDR function in PhotoShop CS5, and I finally stopped and played with it. It takes experimenting, but I'm a little excited that you can take an absolutely boring picture and turn it into something interesting. If you want to get into even more, try listening to a train song while you're working on it.
