Italy Art Prints Available

If you love Italy as much as I do, check out my recent additions to my print on demand website. I have six new images available, so there is plenty of options for adding a new splash of color to your walls. The one below is my favorite, and I'm sure you'll find one you love. Cheers, Wade 

Simplifying an Image

I was in Chicago over the weekend and just returned home. The image below as taken while on the Ferris wheel at Navy Pier. I normally bracket my shots and this one was bracketed then combined in Lightroom (image #1). I then played around with cropping the image to remove unwanted distractions (image #2). I tend to do this when creating the image, but since I was on the Ferris wheel, I didn't have time to frame each scene. I actually shot wide on purpose, so I'd have room to crop. Next, I took the image over to Topaz Studio, as I thought it might look good if it was a little more abstract. I applied the paint by number filter (at about 60%) and masked the riders so they would look like people. Once back in Lightroom, I cropped the image even more to highlight just the riders. I really like how this turned out and I may have to print it out and hang it up! Cheers, Wade
