My Little World

Posted by
Lee (Fort Frances Ontario, Canada) on 13 March 2009 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

It is the mid March, and I like you am tired of winter. We have just recently received over a foot of snow. It is so cold here the thermometer has migrated to the tropics. Animals are still in hibernation. And spring is still one month away. I was reviewing some shots from last summer looking for ideas and found these. Yes this shot has 14 images in it. I loaded all 14 and let CS2 work it's wonders in Photomerge. I then cropped it and performed a few alterations. The end result was better than I expected. This is My World, Welcome to it. This is a different view of the lake I live beside, Rainy Lake. I think I will feature this shot in an upcoming exhibition. I thought you might enjoy a glimpse of it. This is definately much warmer than what I currently see outside my window. I am so looking forward to summer.

Thank you for visiting my site. I consider myself to be lucky living where I do. Everyday I wake up to a wealth of interesting visual scenarios. Most of my pictures are Wildlife and Nature taken from around the area. The area specifically being Fort Frances Ontario on beautiful Rainy Lake. Feel free to comment on what you see. I look forward to hearing from you. If you like what you see, please rate it. Better yet, bookmark the site and drop back often. I will be posting daily.

Your world is realy nice and surprising.
You're a magician .
Very good idea !

13 Mar 2009 9:14pm

@Ca†≈: I'm not sure if I'm a magician or not. Photoshop CS2 did the amazing stuff. All I did was take the pictures. The idea came from the crew at Photoshop Creative a while back. I just adapted it to suit my needs. They are the ones that are magicians. However, Thank you for the compliment.
