before and after

I love the before and after blog posts that I read online.  I just love to see what can be done after the picture is taken.

Don’t you just love what a little LightRoom can do for a photograph?  I do.  The drought has really dried up all the streams and rivers around our area, and I miss being able to take pictures of water.

When I shot this bridge in Natchitoches, I thought . . . “How sad is this? It’s practically dried up.”

I took this with my birthday present, Nikon D5100 with the 55mm-300mm lens and then I applied a 300 preset (that I love).  It’s called 300, because of the movie “300”, with that dark and edgy feel.  Except I used it here to cut through some of the haze and I think it really worked.

Also I am getting arrested today.  Pictures, hopefully tomorrow of all the action!

  1. I agree- it really did work! It's so much warmer and softer now. Enjoy your incarceration. LOL

  2. Arrested????? Now that is a cliff-hanger for sure. Hope they let you out in time to tell us all about it.
