What fun I had with this ride-by capture of the main homeplace and the little barn building just down the hill. First I started with iPhoto, then I went to PSE10, to RadLab, and finally I ended up with iPiccy...I LOVE that free program. The texture from iPiccy in the first shot makes me think of Van Gogh and his skies with their circular movement. It took an awful lot of time, but it surely was fun. I did not take out the big, bold power lines because I think of them as a part of the "picture of life." Without them we would not be enjoying many of the comforts upon which we have come to depend. Therefore, I leave them and actually like the linear aspect they add to my pictures. I am amazed at the 3 different sizes of the lines. My watermarks were almost washed out, but I will watch out for that in the future.
I love experimenting with different frames.
This is the main house up on the hill.

Please consider doing away with word verification. Those of us who are older with eyesight not what it was when we were younger, have real difficulty identifying the words and numerals. I blow them up at least three times, and I still have to click for a new one 3 or 4 times. After I have written a comment and type in the wrong verification numerous times, I finally give up and move on. I am so sorry not to be able to share my thoughts with you. I have had not one problem since I said "No" to word verification.
