Ok, inquiring minds want to know...was the camera on timer setting and autofocus?

Hi Tabor-

I was wondering if anyone was going to be curious about this shot.

Yes, the camera was on a 10 second timer in the auto mode and I just set it on the planks of the boardwalk.

And, you may have noticed that I use sun flare as an effect in many of my pictures.

But I did something here that I've not done before. The sun flare in this picture is a fake, added in Photoshop after the fact.

The sun was actually farther to the right, still behind the mountain, and the sky was just washed out in contrast to everything else, so I cheated and gave the shot another point of interest.

If you want to goof around with such silliness you can create sun flares and other lighting effects under the 'render' option of the filter section of Photoshop.

All the other pictures I've posted with sun flare were as they came from the camera.

Fun. I have Photoshop at work and PaintShop pro at home. The learning curve for Photoshop is so steep for me. I do, like, only two posters a year in the software...everything else I work on has nothing to do with photos and art!! (You guys are cute and so much in love that I visit your site...but with a little envy.)
