Improving My Photoshop Skills

It is quite amazing to look back at photographs taken many, many years ago and really like the way they looked back in the film era.  Yes, I know there are many people who will not go into the digital world.  But for me it opened a whole new world and yes also an addiction.  I can shoot as much as I want, experiment to my heart's content and I don't have to pay for all that awful processing of the film and the wait to see the if anything turned out.  And the big bonus is the playing with the images in the computer.
So here I am in the land of Digital and looking at what I've done within the last few years. I find myself thinking I must have been blind.  So with CS5 and some additional software I think I'm getting better at this.
Do you agree?

Lipizzans of White Horse Vale

Here is a slideshow of the beautiful Lipizzans at White Horse Vale in Goldendale Washington.  These horses are stunning as is the ranch and people that own it and reside there.
We have visited here twice, once in July 2010 and again with our photo club, Portland Photographic Society in October 2010.  Both visits were glorious with the owner, June and her two foreign exchange students, Janne & Eirin showing us a wonderful time.  And also Arne who greeted us on our first visit with some very tasty watermelon that we ate in the yard.  What wonderful memories.
Sit back and enjoy the slideshow by clicking on the link below  (first time I've tried this so hopefully it's successful)  And I can learn some more from the experience.
