365-230 Relax

After my vehicle fiasco yesterday and finding out what the monetary damage ($!!!) is today, I thought it best to take things in stride. After securing a rental vehicle and taking care of business with my employer, it was nice to visit a small park and enjoy the nature a little. A nice calming effect. With todays 365 photo I went a little wild in Photoshop with Nik Silver Efex and texture (SkeletalMess) overlays. I had no idea what my final image was going to be like going in but I am happy with the result. It looks like it should be on a wall at an old hunting lodge. I also did some digital magic to a coneflower shot. Both with Pentax K20D, Super-Takumar 50mm.

      Thanks. I try not to overdo the texture thing but sometimes they just work.
