Another Cute Critter Candid

I’m still running across photographs that I’ve taken in the past and never processed, including the ones from our last camping trip.  I came across this shot of a little squirrel at Woods Canyon Lake (I kept calling them chipmunks, but I’ve since learned they are a species of squirrel).  Anyway, I liked the way the depth of field worked out on this one, especially after I played around with it in Paintshop Pro X3.  I was able to make some adjustments using Levels to really enhance the 3D effect.  He’s a cute little fellow, don’t you think?

And I have a special announcement–I’m self-publishing a calendar for 2011, featuring thirteen of my favorite nature photographs from the past year.  I’ll be posting details soon on how you can order your copy, so stay tuned!
