48/365 song lyrics

Route 66 has probably had more songs written about it than any other road and there are so many photo opportunities along it that this was a tough choice for this photo edit. The painted desert can be disappointing for photographs because they just don't catch what you have seen with your eye. That's why I think it's perfect material for a good edit. Time of day also makes a huge difference here and since the sun is almost invariably strong, late afternoon low in the sky sun works much better with the palette of colours.

The original shot was RAW canon 10-22mm lens, f22,

After cropping and onone preset HDR everything is a lot more defined (but unreal!) I guess you love it or hate it.

Tilting and aperture black and white edit gives an uninspiring shot, I think.

…and finally a perfect photo suite8 grunge edit, which I do like

It's my first time entering this challenge. Would love to hear any feedback.

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla https://vannillarock.wordpress.com If you have come as a baker my blog is http://vannillarock.com i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

i'd love to hear from you...
