Getting Water for the Village

    Did you all know I have a free Newsletter? You'll love it... all kinds of great photos and free tips!

    Here is a wonderful scene from India. I am sure that people here find these women to be rather commonplace and uninteresting, but I thought all their little movements were photo-worthy. I'm sure they thought I was a nut following them around, so I tried to remain fairly clandestine, so as to not to interrupt their natural behavior. I sort of felt like I was tracking wild animals in their native habitat. That sounds strange, I'm sure!

    Yes, I used a texture on this one from one of the texture tutorial packages. Note that I won't do this for everyone, but I wanted to point you to my friend Scotty Graham's blog in Indonesia, who is re-selling these textures. If you buy from there, he is donating his profits to children that suffered from the earthquakes in Sumatra. Anyway, as you can tell, he's a nice guy, and his site is certainly worth a visit!

      this is different from your usual HDRs - a great perspective!

      where you using the "I'm checking my photos" trick and thus the downward perspective:)?
