Travel - 'Twas the Season

For me, with the holiday season comes travel.  I did manage to sneak in a few shots during the trip from Gainesville up to Rochester (I was very excited to be home for both Thanksgiving and Christmas this year).  Thanks for looking and here's to a great 2012!



I recently worked up some images for a competition with the theme "Ice."  I decided to go with self-portraits, which was an experience.  It turns out I have a LOT of bad angles.  Fortunately, out of the 400 that I took, I managed to have four or five that were acceptable after extensive photoshopping. :)  The interesting thing is that I don't think they actually look like me, which made them much easier to work on in post.

The first three have an ice texture that I made and overlaid to the images, the last one looked better without the overlay, but I still haven't decided exactly what to do with the background.  Now accepting suggestions :)
