Thanks for all your interest and the kind reviews. The second picture was a happy accident; I was about to delete a failed night shot of a raccoon when I spotted those Impressionistic landscaped poppies in the background. I blew them up and increased the color saturation level a bit (I use freeware PS clone PhotoPlus 5.5), et voila! The third one is not a walrus on a bike, nor Krang of Ninja Turtle infamy, but a huge and fugly fish that was staring rudely at me from one of a local restaurant's 150 saltwater aquariums. I shoved my camera in his leering face and he finally lost his curiosity. The next to last is just a multi-second exposure of a house party dance floor with the color boosted to look like a psychedelic poster. I'm by no means a wiz at either photography or photo manipulation. I just like to think that I have an eye for things that look uniquely eye-catching in one way or another. Stay tuned for my upcoming exposé on road worker butt crack!
