Emerald Sparkles

Totally missed focus on this shot but still love how it turned out so I ran with a painterly effect and enhanced the stars. In the meantime I need to learn my A7s and FE28mm lens! :)

+Mark Goodman It's really cool, actually. I am legitimately impressed by the level of detail in them.

Introduction
Hello, I'm from Oakdale, MN and have been into photography for about 2 years now. I had an interest in photography since high school but never took a class or took the next step. 
 
What changed? I was tired of taking dark, motion blurred phtos of my dog Lucy and cats Calvin and Kyla. I decided to get a DSLR (actually a SLT) so I could get better shots in low light. The pictures turned out great.
 
Next I went to St. Paul one Saturday afternoon and took some shots of the city.  I was hooked! It was a lot of fun and it opened up all sorts of ideas and possibilities. Now I do all kinds of things and go all kinds of places I never would before. Like being a kid again.
 
Then came the interest in these fantastic looking HDR photos (yes I ended up at StuckInCustoms looking at Trey Ratcliff's work) and I had to try it. After learning the ins and outs of Photomatix and Lightroom I think I've gotten pretty good at it.
 
Now photography has become an obsession but one that is a very positive influence and brought much joy, accomplishment and engagement with the world around me.
Bragging rights
I now have 15 Photos of the Day on Capture Minnesota and 300+ followers and growing. Not only was I published in the 2nd Capture Minnesota book but my photo won the cover!! I've also had two Editor's Choice photos on HDR Spotting website. Another photo of mine was selected for Facebook Friday on HDR One magazine's weekly contest. Locally I received an honorable mention and the photo was printed in Bluefin Bay resorts calendar for 2013 (wish I had submitted the HDR version).

I recently bought a TLX from Buerkle Acura and was very happy with the experience. I worked with Lucas Doerer at Buerkle who was extremely helpful in not only working with my budget but also securing the car quickly. I wanted the Slate Silver color which has been in shorter supply and Lucas and the team at Buerkle were able to transfer a car from another dealer. I would have had to wait another couple weeks if they hadn't made that arrangement. When it was time to pick up the car I felt very welcomed and it was wonderful treatment to pick up a new car. The finance arrangements went very smooth and Lucas walked through setting up the car (phone connection, essential buttons, etc.) and answered any questions I had. Thanks again to Lucas Doerer and Buerkle Acura for the great experience!
