I really like the open field! Very pretty.
Gorgeous homes. Love the first shot.
Hey Alison, great pictures. By the way, what do you use to edit them in.
Hi Tom! I use Lightroom 3 for overall exposure and white balance correction, then edit them individually in Photoshop. I use a lot of actions and filters from various sources, but by favorites are the whole set from Topaz Labs. I can send you more details if you want! Oh, and the tutorials on Lynda.com are excellent!
