Sunset.

Walking home with the dogs late this evening I took this photo below. Now a days the camera means walking to the dogs, so when I take it out of the cupboard their joy knows no bounds.

Click to enlarge.


This photo above is as taken, no editing done to it.

I've also been experimenting with a photo editing program called "Photomatix", used to make HDR photos. (HDR high dynamic resolution). 


I took three photos of the scene above, one normal exposure, one under exposed by 2 stops, and one over exposed by 2 stops. Load the photo onto the program and you get the result below.


This is a trial version thus the Photomatix watermark on the photo. Cost of the licenced version is US $99, (+- R900 in SA money), next month is bonus month, (13th cheque) for me so maybe.

Amazing how quickly pets learn what humans do just before taking them on their outings. Believe it or not, our three cats know that when Grant walks in from work at 5.30,it's time for their outing. They jump off the bed where they've been asleep since 8.30am, and rush to the back door. They know that within a few minutes we'll all go outside into the garden! I love that first photo. Hope you get your Photomatix. Love Jo

With my farm dog it was a gun or a tool of some kind. Beautiful sunset.

The sunset would make awesome wallpaper on you desktop. Every so often I put one on mine just to keep things interesting.
