Flowers on the Cliff

I thought these were pretty overlooking the valley. Mouse over to see the before & straight out of the camera version. (Mouse over tutorial link at right.)



Shot with my Pentax K-7 & 18-55. Edited in Photoshop: Levels & saturation set. Added a little blur dodged & burnt clouds and mountains in background, cropped, added drop shadow & border to top layer.

Visit SkyWatch Friday for more photos of above!

OMGosh! You make me miss OR so. My late hubby and I lived in Corvallis for a couple years. Loved your original but your edit made it stunning! Thanks so much for your visit and awesome comment.
