The original shot for "Chasm" (7-5-14 015v4) above, was just taken today. I wasn't expecting to get any usable realistic pix as I was trying out new camera settings I discovered. I finally read through the entire manual for my Samsung and wanted to see how they effected the issues I've had with shots I've taken before. And voila! the "backlit" setting is very helpful. Though, of course, it didn't address some of the other problems with this particular shot. So I Photoshopped it to my heart's content. In this other version, "Sun Salutation" (7-5-14 015v5) below, you can see just what the pic was of (that tree really is that shape; years of pruning I'd guess):
Of the two of these, I much prefer "Chasm." In fact, I really only share "Sun Salutation" to give some idea of how far afield I went from the original shot in "Chasm." And with great glee, I'll add.
