Like I said yesterday, I found a bunch of CR2 files, when I update my photo program. Over 100! They didn't show up on my drive until I updated the system. There were photos in there that I had forgotten about!
A whole series of western saddles and horses, etc. Photos of Hurricane Ike and many others.
I also got my 220mm film back yesterday and so I have a ton of processing to do! Next weekend I shoot a conference...so I will be busy busy!!
For this shot I just opened the CR2 file, clarified 20 points and saturated a bit more and reduced to TL consumption!

Hi Linda,
What a wonderful shot. I like the strong contrast and colors and the super shard details. it reminds me of my series of rodeo photos I made in Montanna. (good times)
I am just wonderful if the a less central comp would've been better. But in camera.

Hi Linda,
What a nice find! Oh how I miss the west. This is a beautiful shot. So full of details (right down to the notches in the buckle). and nice strong colors.
Have a great weekend- and stay away from the Shark Tanks ! Julie

Hi Linda,
Perfect picture showing perfectly sharp the details of this horse saddle. Great contrast and saturation. A perfect close up!

A very nice, sharp and well lit photo with good contrast and colour. Nice close in crop too!
looking forward to seeing some of the 220mm film shots...

Nice detail shot!!
