Song of Spring
Celebrating Spring with this composite I made in photoshop!
There are only four layers: the hummingbird, dragonfly, and a digital art paper I made some time ago. I added texture as well.
You can turn your old jpgs into amazing backgrounds and overlays -- just play with textures and colors and add in various harmonious elements. Play with the blend modes along the way until you get to a point that your work resonates with you.

Thank you so kindly +George Haji. The good thing these days is all the free tutorials online! It won't (sadly) help with colorblindness. I couldn't do it without those videos though. You should try again!

Fire Breathing Dragon!
This was taken at Universal Studios, Florida. This is in Diagon Ally of Harry Potter fame.
Gringott's Dragon (more specifically part of the Ukrainian Ironbelly species) was used to guard several high-security vaults, including the Lestrange Vault, at Gringotts Wizarding Bank. It was encountered by Harry Potter and his friends when they infiltrated the bank in 1998, (in order to obtain a horcrux) although it is likely the dragon had been guarding the vaults for a long time prior to this.

The sun isolates this cypress tree with light
while Spanish Moss cascades like waterfalls from bright green leaves.

It actually did stand out from the other trees +George Marquardt and in lightroom I doused the highlights and made the shadows darker for those background trees.

Gaylord Palms Resort
This is inside the giant atrium of the hotel. The boat is part of the Moor restaurant. It is a beautiful place to stay!

Swimming with Sharks
I am pleased to introduce you to +Cristina Zenato! You will be awed and inspired by her beautiful underwater photography. Please go see her beautiful photos and comment on your favorites. This lady needs to be seen and her message is great as well:
"I have dedicated my life to the exploration of our water world, education of self and others and conservation of our Water Planet and Fresh water resources.
A passion and love for teaching about sharks, caves, and different kind of environments and diving, my experience and knowledge covers diving in five continents."

So happy that this and other images have made it all the way to China and have sparked a different appreciation for sharks in the audience.

Camouflaged Alligator
You might not be able to see him, but lurking under the watery grasses lurks a juvenile alligator. ; )
Angela Migliore and I got photos of him while visiting Mt. Dora in
Florida last month.

I'm here to listen, to talk, to think.
Introduction
I'm here because I enjoy seeing new points of view and learning about  most anything. I am interested in how people express themselves through words, art, and photography
I love a little bit of everything - perhaps too eclectic for my own good.

No one who knows me would call me shy but I am something of an introvert. For every hour around people I seem to need three hours to recharge. 
I think this is because I don't take people lightly. I find myself trying very hard to see, really see where a person is coming from. What I've discovered though, is how difficult I've made it for myself to really share myself. That's one of the reasons I signed onto G+ ... a place where I hope that after decades of really seeing other people, that some will see me in return.
