This is one of the photos from our recent trip to Arizona. I took it through a window at the Desert Museum in Tucson. After "cleaning" and cropping, I added a texture by Jerry Jones of Shadowhouse Creations. Actually, I added it twice - the first time at soft light, the second time at multiply with reduced opacity. Then I did some dodging and burning to get his/her face to stand out. Cougars are beautiful animals, but I wouldn't want to meet up with one when there was no glass between us!

Cathedral Rock - Sedona, AZ

When we visited Sedona, Arizona, last month, one of the things on our "to do" list was to get a photo of Cathedral Rock with Oak Creek in the foreground. We stopped at a visitor center on the way into Sedona and asked for directions and got a map. Our first day there was sunny with lovely blue skies, so we followed the directions, but found ourselves on the wrong side of the creek. All was not lost though, we hiked on the Baldwin Trail and got lots of photos, although not the one we wanted. The following day we found the correct spot, but unfortunately it was one of the few days in Arizona that was overcast. We got our photo, and I went to work on it with Photoshop Elements. Isn't it amazing what computers can do!!!!

Arizona - Title page

This is the cover page for our Arizona trip album. It's going to take a while to get the pages done. We have about 700 digital photos and I'm waiting for 12 rolls of FILM to be developed. The hard part is going to be deciding which photos to print.
