Only two defining forces have ever committed to die for you:
Jesus Christ for your soul and
The American G.I. for your freedom.

Potoshop CS5 Content Repair

The top photo is from Ric Hunter, taken in Florida on a recent trip to escape from Burnsville, NC while his wife was in Italy.
I have to specify that Ric lacks timing. I would have waited until he could have taken a photo without the gator dragging the distracting stick on its nose.
Having performed editing miracles for Rick on some of his previous wildlife photos, this was a piece-of-cake for Photoshop CS5's content aware repair capabilities.
The challenge was to remove the stick and other distracting elements from the photograph. Other enhancements not evident were added, i.e. sharpening, white balance, and adding a sparkle to the visible right eye of the gator

Mission accomplished!

Sunrise in Whitestone, VA

This is an HDR image taken on the front lawn of our dear friends, Clyde and Hazel Lee Kizer during our visit last October (2009). My wife, Caroline alerted me to the sunrise that was revealing itself.
Luckily, I happened to be cleaning my D90, 18-200 mm lens and getting my tripod attachment onto the camera.
I have since added the photo matte using colors selected for the inner and outer matte directly from the photo. Click on the photo to fill your screen.
