This is all I got. A big ole magnolia tree in a full-throated shout of Spring blossoming, a mile from my house in the village of Barboursville, W.Va. The first is the straight-up shot in mid-afternoon yesterday, slightly saturated. The rest are some new filters that showed up in my latest version of Photoshop Elements. Reality — it’s good for awhile, until you fire up Photoshop. No, I don’ really believe that. I like reality. But I’m an ah-tist, in my daydreams. Or at least a filter-user. I don’t think those are always the same thing. Though sometimes they are. You be the judge. | douglas imbrogno

  1. I guess looking at trees with your third eye causes them to shift like that. PS: Go sit by your tree tonight about 8pm and you might be able to get a phot with the aurora behind it. That will get your third eye a going. You are just past the southern edge for viewing but, for once, Ohio down to the River is in a “good” viewing zone. Check my Facebook post for details.
