Road Trips and Photoshop

I was out driving the other day, camera in tow, and came across these beautiful work horses. I did a little research, and I think they are Suffolk Draft horses. I love their blonde manes.
That one in the middle was looking right at me! This grazing field is right in front of a GE or Corning plant, so I took some liberties with the background to morph it right out of there, and make it look pastoral instead. Not bad, eh? I love photographing horses.
...and maybe some day I'll be a little less heavy-handed with the Photoshop. You'll just have to bear with me as I experiment, OK?
You'll all be happy to hear that I accomplished yesterday's goals of showering (!) and making the cranberry upside-down cake to bring to BF's mother's house. It was SO yummy! I also managed to get three estimates and one bill out yesterday as well. The biggest job is a "go" as of this morning, so I can breathe a sigh of relief for January. :) I just love it when that whole "working" thing pays off!
Next on my list is a huge window seat cushion and two chair cushions that I need to cover. I need to get on that, and get that cushion OUT of my sewing room.

Using Photoshop is like being an artist; experimenting with different looks, textures, feelings, constantly evolving your own personal style with the tool to help you explore. Very cool stuff.

Kudos on getting the tasks done AND on scoring the big job!

Ahhh, the magic of Photoshop! Lovely images (being a bona fide horse person, myself). I think you could be very close on the breed, if not strictly correct. They're clearly draft horses, and they could be Suffolk Punch, but I'm thinking more likely they are Belgians. (A friend had a handsome chestnut Belgian gelding with a flaxen mane and tail very much like the ones in your photos.) Love how they're so fuzzy-bear furry in their winter coats!

Congrats on knocking off the items on your task list, too. The linen-velvet pillows are very cool. Well done!
