Hemi is one of my grand puppies. She went to Washington with use for Thanksgiving and was a great companion on the long drive.
This is a computer enhanced photo. I love playing with Photoshop.

Missy girl is usually camera shy, but she had been doing her morning cleanup when I got this one.

I wanted to show how fun it is to change a very poor photo into a painting.

After using several filters and adjustments I got the picture with the rainbow, no telephone pole and brighter color.

The original image and the completed image are placed close together for comparison. I use photos like the original to Photoshop because, well, look at it. Telephone pole, uninteresting color, poor exposure, etc.
