A day of canoeing on Ladybird Lake

As you canoe under the bridges you get closer and closer to downtown.

And then all of a sudden you can see the skyline. Isn't it great?







I love that my Mom wore her yellow life jacket the entire time...always the cautious one. :)




After we went canoeing we headed over the The Oasis, a cool restaurants overlooking Lake Travis. I wanted to show you the magic of editing a picture. Below is a picture straight out of my camera, no editing. It's not too bad but a little blah, if you ask me.



This is after I applied some effects in Lightroom. Better, huh?


To learn more about editing and making your pictures "pop" check out my photography book!
I've included my entire editing process along with some of my favorite free Lightroom "presets". (which are "actions" to those of you who know Photoshop! Still don't know what the heck I'm talking about? ...get my book, I explain it all!) :)
