The thing I’m loving most about turning photographs into different images is that even the most imperfect, long-distance, sometimes out-of-focus photograph has the potential to become something quite visually pleasing.

Like most people who own a camera, I’m a sucker for sunsets.  More image play from original photos.

Through the window in my office, I have a good view of the garden and am able to see occasional visitors of note.

This morning it was this white-faced heron.  Because the glare was right behind him, all I was getting on the screen was a silhouette. It took a great deal of pushing the exposure and some other tweaks to get this image happening.
