April Showers
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
April Showers
April Showers
F5.3, 1/40, 41mm, ISO 160, taken on an overcast day with Justin's Scooby Doo umbrella and Hershey's raincoat, "rainy window" action applied w/CS, original image layered over it but not sure of the opacity and then "rainy window" water drops were brought back in places using the history brush. Rain added in Photo Explosion Deluxe.
Justin is off on spring break and Ben took off too so we could do some things. Tomorrow Justin has a dentist appt and then we are planning to go fishing, so I am off to bed earlier than usual tonight. I will check back in tomorrow night! Happy "hump day!" I can't believe that spring break is almost half over already!

OMG! I just got online for the first time today and saw that several comments were in my email about a photo. I clicked on the link and found this is a winner! I didn't even know finalists were out!! I didn't see an email from BP either, although I really haven't had time to check all my mail. What a surprise! Thank you all so much for your congrats and kind comments! I am so thrilled! Justin will be so happy to see his puppy's photo with a gold medal!
