There are lots of third-party filters you can install for PSE that will turn your photos into watercolors, pencil drawings, oil paintings, etc.  My personal favorite is Topaz Simplify - I used it to turn this into this But you can also get some pretty neat effects using the tools already built in...

As a real estate photographer (in addition to being a real estate agent), I love using photos to show off properties to their best advantage.  This one wasn't even a challenge ... all I had to do was point my camera in any direction and be rewarded with a beautiful picture.  It's a small (8 acres...

Well, almost free ... you do have to buy the domain name ($6.99 at www.1and1.com).  I recently had a request from a FSBO seller in Maryland to take photos of her home; since I'm only licensed in Virginia, I couldn't try to convince her to list with me :-)  In addition to photos, she also wanted a...

We went to Meadows Farms nursery today to start our herb garden - while we were there, we found Herbert the Frog and had to bring him home.  (By the way, his tag said his name was Herbert but, considering we were shopping for herbs, he was pretty aptly named!)  After considering several locations...

Meticulously maintained and absolutely immaculate!  Gleaming hardwoods on the main level and upper hallway, ceramic tile in the kitchen, new flooring in all baths.  Master bedroom has a walk-in closet with window and a luxury master bath.  It's been freshly painted with new carpeting in the bedro...

Well, we're poised for round 2 of the epic snowfall.  We already have over 2 feet on the ground, huge piles of snow moved by plows and (sore) muscles, and we're about to get another foot or more.  It's just getting silly ... To keep my sanity, I've been snapping away at the birds that visit our f...

I just got off the phone with a gentleman who is considering relocating from South Carolina to Herndon, Virginia.  He knows he can't buy the kind of house he has in SC for a similar price here in Northern Virginia, but he also wants to avoid the "bad" areas.  I tried to explain to him that, becau...

They were forecasting it for days:  "An Epic Snowstorm!", "Massive February Snowstorm!", "Snowmageddon!"  Well, they finally got one right.  Snowfall totals of 2 to 3 feet, trees down, 10's of thousands without power, roofs collapsing (including a hangar at Dulles Airport housing private jets).  ...

I recently did a photo shoot at a nursing home and met Harley the Cocker Spaniel.  He's a therapy dog who often visits with the residents.  As I was trying to get a shot of him with his owner, he came walking straight up to the camera - I snapped quickly and here's the result: Could he be any cut...

Photoshop Elements, actually.  I love to take photos of the birds that come to our bird feeder, but the sliding glass door has broken seals which make it hard to shoot through.  And, for some reason, it's especially hard to get pictures of the Blue Jays - they're very skittish and fly away as soo...
