With a bit of tweaking, it could be Escher-esque ;)

I'm not very good at landscape shots. I've never really been interested in them but when I went to Serpentine Bridge in London I thought i'll attempt it today.

Here's a shot.

Thank you everyone!

Summer in the middle of Texas is like a snowy winter elsewhere -- hibernation from the heat has left me extremely uninspired so this photo was a surprise. My husband mentioned the Escher-ness as well.

I'm pretty light with my PP for the most part but am open to suggestions for experimentation. I recently made the switch to LR3 and am kicking myself for not having done so sooner.

So I went for a drive around 7:30pm today just before we had to break our fast for ramadhan. I was starting to get extremely hungry and thought i'd pass some time before we could eat and ended up in the middle of nowhere taking random photos.

I don't normally take landscape shots because quite frankly i'm crap at it. I must admit if it wasn't for a couple of lightroom presets I have these photos probably wouldn't have turned out that great.

Anyhow here are the few I thought looked nice (after the PP).

I used my Canon 450d along with my Tamron 17-50mm 2.8 which I must say is fantastic considering how cheap it is.

I have a really pretty Qur'an and after I read it I thought i'd take a few photos of it. I've always been amazed by the calligraphy and art work in the Qur'an and we had a few roses out in the garden my mum let me borrow (lol).

For a while I stopped using watermarks because they are hideous and distracting but i'm having to use them again because I caught a few people using my photos on social networking sites that p'd me off, so apologies in advance if the photos look messy with the watermarks but it's got to be done.

I used my Canon 450d and 60mm macro lens. PP done in Adobe Photoshop CS5 and Lightroom.

Here are the results. (I have loads more of these on my flickr)

CC always welcome.
