Show {Off} Your Shot - Beauty and The Beast



Today starts a new week of Show {Off} Your Shot hosted by and then, she {snapped}. It's hard to decided what pictures to post because I have been shooting so many different things lately. So I decided to go with "the beauty and the beast".

The bird of paradise I shot upon sunrise while walking my daughter to school. I saw the way the sun was coming through the "feathers" and loved the bright colours. I processed it in Photomatix (LOVE this program thanks to Trey from Stuck In Customs) using the "painterly enhancement" and played with the adjustments until I got the desired textures. Then I did a little more adjusting in Picasa and there you go.



This is a "7 Ton" from my husbands motor pool. While I was visiting this office the other day I noticed the sign which normally is not on the truck so I wanted to capture it. I used Picnik for the selective black and white and then loaded it into my Photomatix for texture around the tires, tread and grill.
