We have returned to that treasure trove in Virginia of funky, whimsical and interesting finds for gardens and of course, photography. Our @WineChics travel allows us to hit the country back roads, antique villages, historical markets in history-rich areas of Virginia Wine Country so it doubles our fun so much so that we plan a wine treasure hunt over the summer with photog friends. Like our Vintage Shack HDR post, there is so much happening here that the Canons gobble them up and Photomatix is in raptures. Next trip will be early morning sunrise or sunset — you can just imagine that in your creative mind. Fun and funky stuff – a break from the serious landscapes and portraits. These images were perfect candidates for Color Efex Pro and texture overlay just to give them pure whimsy.
