A New Look

This is another crop from the Cookie Cutter Tool in Photoshop Elements. I love to play around and experiment like this. You may recognize this photo from my collage for Mosaic Monday. Here is a new and closer look for you. This stream is just off route 6 in Andover, CT. There is an old stone dam and the stream has detoured around the side of the dam.  Don't you love the lichen and colors on this large rock? I was very satisfied with the look of the water in the photo. My goal was to learn how to get that smoothly flowing look to the water.

You seem to be doing a good job with your photography. I am rather new to using my camera and haven't really started Photoshop yet. Seems there is so much to learn!

Thank you for leaving me the nice comment on my blog earlier this week. If you have anything (including your photography) that you'd like to showcase on the "Your Cozy Home" party, feel free to check my blog for details.
