JUST DREAMY...

Yes...I'm still playing with my Picasa !!!...and loving it. These photos were taken at different times of the day... the first is a Ruby Meadowhawk dragonfly that insisted on following me around on my entire walk around the pond... everywhere I went. We played hide and seek around the hydrangea tree, that was pretty amusing! I do have photos of that. I had quite a treat when I returned home today. We don't have a garage, just a stoned parking area. As I was putting my truck in park, I looked up and a Ruby Meadowhawk was hovering in front of my windshield looking straight at me. I got out of the truck and it was within two feet of my face! Honest to God truth!! Now that was a warm welcome home!! (should've had the old camera!). On the top photo I adjusted the color, added glow and soft edges...hoping for that dreamy look. Of course, that's the look I was going for in all the photos. The next two photos I added just glow and soft edges. I love the starry effect on the edges of the lily pads from the suns' reflection. The last one is a dragonfly in flight as well...only I just softened the edges. Both of the dragonfly photos were too blurry to crop any closer to be honest. So, I figured that you can't waste otherwise beautiful photos of a magnificent creature.

Your photo's are beautiful. I have Picasa but have never taken the time to play with the program. After seeing your beauties I must make it a point to experiment.
