Photo of the Day: November 14

November 14 textured
ISO 800, f/7.1, 1/200s, 18-55mm lens on Nikon D3100 w/10x macro filter
Some days are so busy it is all I can do to get my photo of the day posted.  Today was one of those days.  And looking ahead at this week's calendar, there will not be much down time again.  *sigh*  I'm really longing for simpler days.  It is all good stuff I'm busy with, but I prefer to have some time to just relax and read a book or visit blogs or perhaps watch a movie without feeling guilty about something else I should be doing.  So if I don't visit you or participate in many link ups this week, you'll know why.


Anyway, enough boo hooing.  I took this photo this afternoon while searching outside for something, anything to photograph.  :)  I placed a lone acorn on our picnic table and played around with my macro filter.  Some photos I was really close; some, like this, I zoomed out and left more blank space.  I preferred this shot.  But it needed some texture, so I added two layers of Kim Klassen's Phoebe texture (one with a multiply blend mode and one with a soft light blend mode) and one layer of Aurora (soft light).  Mouse over to see the non-textured version.


And with that, I am going to bed.  Tomorrow is another busy day.
