First, my 365 Project (take a photo every day) Elesa talked me in to doing a bit over a month ago. It forces me to think of, and take, at least one photo every day. We've had a lot of gray days lately and as I was going out to the car (camera in tow in case a photo opportunity arose) I noticed the tree's reflection on the windshield.
Second, I uploaded the new GIMP, which blew away the raw converter I had linked to GIMP...which got me looking more and more into the various menus and possibilities with GIMP. Unfortunately, working with the JPEG for now.
