I Found a New Toy!!!

And best of all it was free.....at least for now. 

I know some of you use Topaz plug-ins to edit and I was always a little envious of some of the effects. 
Well Topaz has created Topaz Studio and the download is free. 

Just head over to their WEBSITE and check it out.  They have alot of cool stuff within the Studio to play with. 

Here are some images using the HDR effect.  I may have overdone it on some, I have to learn how to use all the sliders, but it seems pretty easy. 










These images were made in the beautiful farm country of Union County just east of us.
i'm Thankful for the beauty that surrounds me and the eyesight God gave me to see it.

I had been looking at it but went ahead and downloaded last night but I have not tried it yet. Based on your examples it looks like it might be a great program. I have a few of their other software and they really make a quality product. They are pricey but worth it. This is too good a deal to pass up.

Great cloud cover.

Fine images! Yes, HDR tends to look overcooked sometimes, but I think you used it artfully.

You are a lucky girl to live with such beauty!
Sandra said…
I think they are stunning and perfect. and I can't decide if I want to thank you for the site or say OH NO... I have wanted that topaz thing but did not want to pay for it. so I will say thank you. and in return I got an email this week from a new web site www.canva.com. it said I see you use edit software a lot on your blog and we are new, 27 months old, please try us out. now I will be trying it and topaz over the week end.
I wouldn't say you overdid anything

What fabulous farm photos! They're all just stunning. And I too have so often thanked God for giving me sight to see the beauty of His Creation. xo

looks great. not overworked as many other softwares. Have to check it out. And hope it is not free for only 30 days as they often are. :(

Stunning farm shots! Thanks for the info...I think I'll go have a look-see. And speaking of see, it is because of restored vision that I am blogging today and I will always be grateful to God :)

Beautiful photos. I hope the Topaz is truly free because it seems too good to be true. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

Your images are always wonderful! I downloaded it, but I already have PS and all of the Topaz plug ins, so I will probably not use it much.
Love the sky and your entire scene here - beautiful.

Thanks for the link, Felicia. I'll have a play with it this afternoon although I am always a bit reluctant to use the HDR effect. It requires a gentle touch, which you appear to have. Your photos are lovely.
Paul said…
All of these came out really nice, I think you overdone them just the right amount!

And thank you for the Topaz link too by the way!
Rajesh said…
Beautiful work.
Beautiful and even more so because you get to see these scenes all the time living near there.
GreenComotion said…
Gorgeous work, made further gorgeous by the tool.
But, the most important work of finding the scene to photograph is still done by you my friend.
You do such a good job of it!!
Always outstanding!!

Happy 4th, Felicia!

Have a Happy Week!!
Peace :)

First you live in a very picturesque part of the country. Loved the barn shots and they had great fences in them as well. Thanks for the link, I'll check it out.
Patti said…
What fun! It looks like you've figured Topaz out rather quickly. Nice painterly effects.
Helma said…
Hi Felicia,
I do not know the program what you mean. I know HDR, but it's also in my camera. Your pictures; s are really beautiful to see. Nice to make the differences :-)

Greetings, Helma
