Welcome Home folk art doll and sign outside an antique store in downtown Baird, Callahan County, Texas. Raw conversion and post processing in ACDSee Ultimate 9. Additional post processing in PhotoLine 19, Topaz Adjust 5 (Retro Style IV) and Alien Skin Exposure 7.
Part of a backyard patio series of decorations for the autumn season. From ORF raw with processing in Photo Ninja, Perfect Photo Suite 8 beta, Topaz Adjust and PhotoLine. The challenge here was dealing with the bright sky and most of the image in the shade. In this single exposure, the highlights were blown out, but Photo Ninja automatically recovered those blown highilights in the sky.
