Lens Babies and Blossoms
It was such a beautiful weekend that I pulled out the lensbaby and went out back to take a few shots of my apple tree in full blossom. The deer have started their official countdown waiting for the apples at the end of the summer. I have yet to get to eat one but maybe the tree will be tall enough one day to keep a few out of their reach.

This is what comes of sitting around the house on a cold and rainy Saturday. I saw someone do something similar to this in Boston so I thought I would play with the basic technique. This is what I came up with. I'm still undecided on whether or not I like it yet. You tell me.

I spent last week at the Photoshop World Conference in Boston. As always, it was an extraordinary few days of learning from some of the best and brightest in the industry. My friend Scott Kelby and his associates put on a fabulous curriculum and I highly recommend it for anyone that uses Photoshop or Lightroom. The pic below was processed in Lightroom and I picked up the titling from two of Scott's sessions. I even used some Smart Object tips that I got from attending one of Dave Cross' classes. By the way, if you are even thinking of investing in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom for your workflow, I highly recommend Scott's newest book, The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Book for Digital Photographers. It is the definitive soup to nuts book on how to work with this great new program. You can find out more info here at Amazon.
