A Dreamy Fantasy Pathway
The scene above shows the entranceway at Five Ridge Prairie Preserve. I took the picture from the inside while I was leaving. The original picture is nothing special. You can see it below. I take some pictures just to mark my place. But I learned a little technique to turn my ordinary picture into a dreamy fantasy scene.
I won't bore you with the details. I just thought it was a nice little effect. I was doing similar things before, but I have more control over things with this new way. It's kind of fun playing around with my photos like this. It gives the computer nerd in me some needed excitement.
Oh, by the way, the photo editor I used is called Gimp. It's free, and a simple Google search will find it for you. I won't say too much more because I think Rob was planning on writing a whole article about it one of these times. I just thought I'd share a bit of fun.
