Photoshop learning curve

As I am taking more and more photos, I am looking for other ways to make them different. So, I spend a good amount of time in Photoshop trying to learn new effects, coloring and so forth. I do prefer the real pictures and those that are barely altered if at all, but sometimes a different effect can bring out a different aspect of the photo or give you a new perspective of it. Here are some of my favorites as I am learning new things...

Jut another Labor Day weekend...

So, for Labor Day I went out to visit my friend Dan and his wife Courtney. When Dan and I get together there is no normal, I just don't think it is possible. Luckily, Courtney is ok with that. So, we spent the weekend on a boat and blowing up soda cans. Needless to say, it made for quite the entertaining weekend!
We don't play games here. Soda Pop Derby is a serious thing...
...Until you get splattered in the face by so much soda that your eyelids are almost stuck closed. But hey, it makes for a VERY enjoyable time and some cool looking pictures.

Courtney was a great driver, and fearless too. At one point I thought she might tip the boat, but she did a good job of getting people off the tube...
...Here is the proof of her skill. I would have sworn Dan did a belly-flop.
Dan decided he would take me through the middle of a wave, luckily I stayed on...
...Then he decided it was time to bounce me over the top.

These types of weekend are definitely the moments in time that take your breathe away, figuratively and literally. I wouldn't have it any other way.
