Day 207 - Flying Into the Sunset
I did something new and completely out of my "Element" (pun intended - you'll get that in a sec) today.
There is a small airport near my home and I wanted to get some planes flying in around sunset. A few nights ago we were driving home from church and the sunset was so gorgeous and seeing the planes fly over gave me the idea to get my camera one of these days and go take some shots of it. Well, tonight the sky was not that impressive. Kinda dull actually. I was taking some practice shots while I was waiting on the planes to come and took a picture of the sun just as it was beginning to set. It set pretty fast and by the time the planes came the sky was lit up but just a dull orange color. So....I decided to experiment a bit and take the two pictures I liked and combine them in PE. This is only my 2nd time ever using PE and I had to watch a tutorial on how to do it, but I must say, I am pretty pleased with the results. Sure was time consuming though. Hopefully one of these days I will be able to capture these planes with a gorgeous sky backdrop.
Here are the two pictures I combined.
On a side note, Branson over at My Reflection of Something wrote up a great post today with some VERY useful information for bloggers. I know, I know...you are going to skip right past my link and click the "Next" button at the top of your browser to read the next blog but WAIT! FIRST you HAVE to go read Branson's post today. She wrote about some important issues a lot of bloggers need to be aware of, so before you click "Next" to read the next blog, read hers first. (Well actually, leave a nice comment for me and THEN go read her post:) Thanks, guys! Have a great day.
