Lacy plumes of goldenrod bloom in the meadows of Yosemite Valley.  Processed in Photoshop Elements by adjusting levels and burning.  I also added just a touch of Topaz Simplify.

Took me a while to get this one right.  I used my tripod and a remote shutter release to capture these cherry tomatoes.  Overhead kitchen light, window light and flash were all used in this photo.   Processed in Photoshop Elements, the photo was cropped and a high pass filter applied.

Camera settings: Canon T1i, F/5, 1/60 sec., ISO 400, focal length 39 mm.  Flash fired.

A wildflower processed in Photoshop Elements with my own texture, Topaz Detail, adjusted levels and burning.   Hope you like it!  The texture was applied over the photo at 75% overlay.
