Out and About - again...

We made the most of the sunshine today and headed for Stratford upon Avon, as we walked along the River Avon an obliging swan swam over to have his photo taken.  I thought he was going to have a go at my wide-angle lens but he just growled at it!

I've downloaded the free trial version of LightRoom 4 and am enjoying playing with it at the moment - I never thought I'd desert my old version of LR, but I'm loving being able to do curve adjustments for different colour channels, plus LR4 has an amazing ability to rescue blown highlights (not that I ever GET blown highlights of course :O)), so I think I may be swayed.  Have a great weekend everyone.

The second shot looks lovely! The first won't load for me at the moment, but I can see it as a thumbnail on my blogroll. Swans are such peculiar birds!

Thank you for visiting us and get well wishes. We love these photos especially the first one. Purrs!

Oh, my--that's really up close and personal with the swan! They can be a bit ornery, so this is so unexpected!

So pretty - I love the first shot- love the colors. I have been teetering on upgrading from LR3 to LR4.... i think you convinced me to give it a shot! :)
