Nice picture! I'm curios if this was done with multiple images or some sort of HDR filter in post. I do a little photography myself and have always been interested in getting into HDR. On a side note, do you have any advice on editing software cheaper than a photoshop subscription. I'm currently using GIMP, but I'm always interested in learning about something new. It sounds like you post most of your photos other places like FB, but feel free to post here more often. We like your work!
Well, he's got a nice camera.
I was waiting for it.


And I have no idea on cheaper editing software. I'm running the entire Adobe suite.

I didn't use the video software last year (my bad), but the full suite also comes with all the Acrobat stuff, which rocks for the tutoring biz.

Oh Well. On a side note, I appreciate the photos that list the camera/lens settings under the photos. Hope to see more of your work :)
