November 11th is Veterans day in the U.S.A. so when you see a veteran grab them, hug, them, kiss them and tell them thank you for putting your life on the line every day.
We send them off to war younger and younger,
We are so proud of them for what they do. We miss them and think of them everyday. We pray that we won't get the visit from the military telling us they proudly died for the country.
Our children look at them as we do, heroes, And when they grow up they take the place of the vets that made it ,and those that didn't.
They do it all for the love of their country.
Happy veterans day vets , thank you is not anywhere close but it,s all I got. Stay safe and God Bless.

One of my most enjoyable things to do is get together with a very close friend of mine for some photo shoots.
We often come up with a few ideas each and wait until we get together to try them out.
It's a weekend spent taking and talking about good times and stock photos.
The last time we were together I wanted to have a photo of an arrow in mid flight just before hitting the bulls eye on the target.
Of course the title would be on target.
It is really funny when we go through the lobby of the hotel with all our props and the looks we get are priceless.
But no matter of the weather, the season, or the location we always have fun and occasionally even get a photo or two that come out as planned.
so glad I could help.

I have learned a great deal from a lot of the Dreamstime folks that are willing to share information.
One thing I really struggled with was how to isolate a subject.
If you read the blogs you will find many ways to do this and I have tried most of them.
I really believe that every body will find what best works for them. I find using the sponge tool works the best for me.
But a tip I do have that seemed to turn the corner for me was to drastically crank up the magnification. I mean to over one thousand percent.
At this level your brush size is small even though to you it looks big. What this does is prevents bleeding the white into your subject.
After you make a complete circle around your subject you can start to decrease magnification and increase brush size...
Sounds like good advice. I will have to try it.
