Beautiful pics hayleyscomet!  I also love the bridge and water one.  :thumleft:

I would hang your images as art work on my wall anytime. You should sell prints at some of those art-in-the-park days.

I love these two:

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

CS6 launch conference was amazing, they did a 10 week world tour with 3 of the developers as speakers, CPT was the last stop on the tour.

CS6 is amazing, one of the main features in Photoshop includes video editing too now.

Aaah at last....

some great pics there HayleysComet. HDR can be a great method of showing good photos.

I have been using photoshop for years, I think I first started off with version 7 and then carried on from there. I am currently running with CS4 extended. I would upgrade but have yet to find the cash for said upgrade.  :eek7:  I have tried Lightroom in the past, but I find photoshop is way better and can do a whole lot more stuff. As for plugins, I am running Color Efex pro and Silver Efex as well as Viveza but I dont use it as often as the other two. BUt in saying that, there is no substitute for a bad photo. you can tweak it all you like with any software on the market, but as far as I am concerned, a crap photo will remain just that!!

THen again, I will sometimes shoot a specific scene or subject with editing in mind, and other times I shoot to capture what i see in front of me. There are events I go to around  Africa where I have to shoot to capture the emotion of the people and scene. At those shoots i will mix my "shoot to edit" and "shoot to print" styles and for the most part I have had great success with that

for example, I shot this collection of human skulls and bones in eastern Europe. When I took the picture I already knew I wanted to do a black&white edit to it.



On the other hand, I shot these zebra in Kenya, I think the only edit I did was remove a dust spot from the sky, the rest is as I shot it...... Certainly one of my favourites




I have never been that good at doing HDR conversions, mine always end up looking like sh#t so I tend not to use this method in my work, but if done properly it can look amazing.... see haleyscomets work for a good example!
