I belong to a large camera club that is awesome, except for when it isn’t 🙂 Like when my photo gets a good review from the judge but then passed in the first round. This was the fate of my entry last night:
A bit frustrating. I like to go though, because there is always something new to be learned and I find that exciting.
Next week’s theme is architecture. I am entering the photo below, but I know the competition will be tough. I have seen some of the past winning images, and they are really something else.
This image was taken with my point and shoot in jpeg. So, I didn’t have a heck of a lot to work with in post editing. It is the Steam Clock in Vancouver. Can you believe that my Canon 50D broke on a train ride across the Rockies to Vancouver? I was too stunned to be heartbroken.
Anyway, about the post editing. I use GIMP. I really don’t have the whole dodge/burn thing down. I have been trolling youtube for GIMP tutorials, but haven’t come across one yet on this particular topic that speaks to me. If anyone else has a GIMP tutorial that they love, I would love the link.
