HDR Software Shoot-out soon!

I have ordered my CS5 upgrade. I will receive it next week. I am eager to try the NEW HDR Pro feature in CS5. I have HDR Photostudio but have yet to use it. I am a 3 yr. Photomatix Pro user.

Once I receive my CS5 upgrade, I plan to find some time and work some images, compare and come to a conclusion as to which one works best for me. I try to achieve the Painterly Look.

I will post the summary and results for you to decide as well.

Stay tuned!

It's Spring time at the CVNP Heron Rookery!

I stopped by the CVNP (Cuyahoga Valley National Park) Heron Rookery last evening (4/22/2010) briefly to check out the latest activity.

There are over 70 nests, lots of Great Blue Herons, nest building activity and some nests had babies but the baby boom is still a few weeks away.

Here are some images from my visit:
