I love Taos. We used to go there a lot when we lived in the TX panhandle to ski. It was a nice weekend retreat. I like what you did with the pictures, but my favorite was the original. Have a great weekend. :)

Fun changes to your road. Looks like a road you need to travel slowly on :0)

Alice Audrey said...

Do you find all your pictures come out shifted dark? I have my setting for as light as I can get them and still have to do a color shift to make them look normal.

I love your dirt road. It makes me miss the Toas area, which I used to drive through for many years.

jam said...

Fantastic pics! I like the scenery along the countryside road.

crazy working mom said...

My favorite was the "glowing edges". Nice work!

Thanks for stopping by my place today. Happy Weekend!

Dianne said...

Great shot! Looks like you had fun photoshopping too.
Thanks for stopping by.

Joyce said...

Good Morning, Friend,
My favorite this time is Normal Color Dodge. That effect seems to just brighten up the colors in a natural way. :)

Mama Zen said...

As I keep saying, I have GOT to learn how to do this!

Annie said...

This is very cool! I love seeing the modifications to your photo. This is such a great theme this week, one of my favorites. Happy equinox!

Grandy said...

You're having fun with your pics, aren't you? Nice job.

me ann my camera said...

What fun photo shop is to play with. Nice choices. Nice road.

PastorMac's Ann said...

Great shot. Think I like the second shot - first effect. I do love New Mexico so your picture had me with the original one! Perfect choice for The Hunt.

Sammawow said...

Great shot for the road theme! Love the photo editing pictures - it's fun to see how different they can look!

Rebecca said...

I think the first shot is my favorite... the first "altered" shot is my second favorite. :)

To everyone – Thanks so much for visiting my 22nd Photo Hunt. I’ve enjoyed experimenting with ‘filters’ in PSE6 … sharing here at Sacred Ruminations … reading your supportive reactions & specific feedback … and believe I’m learning each time I put something out there to share. In addition, I enjoy visiting your blogs to see what you’ve published. I’m often amazed at the diversity of responses to a single prompt or theme, and it’s fun to meet new bloggers each week. I appreciate you so much!
Hugs and blessings,
