Tiny ripples run across the top of this quiet stream. Processed in Photoshop Elements by burning a layer and then multiplying that layer over the original. Kind of different.

Found this old dead tree in a meadow in Yosemite. I decided to shoot up and try to capture some of the sky that showed that day. Fortunately the clouds were cooperating. Processed in Photoshop Elements by adjusting levels and saturation as well as burning and dodging.
One of many stone bridges in Yosemite Valley that cross the streams that run into the Merced river. Processed in Photoshop Elements with adjusted levels and Topaz Simplify buz sim.
I was taking some shots of ferns in complete shade when I came upon this stump in partial shade. Thought it had a lot of character so I am using it for the shade theme. Processed in Photoshop Elements with adjusted levels, high pass filter and burning. Still taken in Yosemite.
I downloaded a free trial of Photomatix and ran three exposures through it to get the following composite HDR-like result. I really liked the way it came out. Great, now there’s another plug-in that I want!
Caught this one in a meadow in Yosemite. This dandelion-type flower was about three feet tall. I loved the seed pods and the seed head on this one. Processed in Photoshop Elements by adjusting levels, high pass filter and burning.
Took this while wandering through one of the many meadows on the valley floor of Yosemite. It’s pretty dry this time of year and the falls were pretty low . Anyway, the poor lighting (around 12:30 pm) still allowed us to get some decent shots. This one of Half Dome I decided to process in b/w. Processed in Photoshop Elements by adjusting levels and extensive dodging and burning again.
Taken today on a trip to Yosemite. I hadn’t been there in quite a few years. This shot was taken as we left the valley floor about 1:30 pm or so. Would have liked it to be later but oh well. There were clouds moving overhead and the valley was dotted with cloud shadows. I processed this in Photoshop Elements by adjusting levels and then extensively dodging and burning. The sky is a little blown but I liked the clouds anyway. Hope you like it.
