The rotating tree - please view it large

No B&W today, sorry :P I just read about the new Technique Challenge of ICM and clicked on the link that was given... and after that I HAD to try it.
This is my first attempt, before I didn't even know something like that existed, so please have that in mind while watching it!
Feedback is much appreicated.

Edited in Lightroom 5 (but not the blur, just colours/contrast/exposure...)

... I think I can use this for theme-speed as well, can't I?


Top 5 for theme-speed! *-*
Aaaand I won the Technique challenge with that, woohoo! :)
wunderschön, schaut aus wie gemalt! fav

Willkomen aus 365! OK, that's the extent of my German unless I'm ordering schnitzel! LOL! I read your profile after seeing the comment above in German. We lived in Germany for 4 years in the 1990s (Aschaffenburg and Wuerzburg). Had the time of our life travelling there. Would love to go back again some day.

Wonderfully done. Great colors and contrast, too. :)

So... After a few days with it, how do you like Lightroom?
November 22nd, 2013  
Great effect. Love it.

@homeschoolmom Thanks!
Haha, that's cool! Yes me, Kandis and a few other German 365ers usually talk in German bc.. why shouldn't we use our native language? :P
That's cool. Never been to those two cities but I guess they're cool! I'll think of you if I ever come there!

@pennyp Thanks :)

@xtrmntr2k Thank you too :D
It's pretty cool and helps a lot to get the best out of my pics :)
But it's really complicated since I only used Picmonkey, Paint :-P, PhotoScape and stuff like that before.. I once used the test version of PS CC but I didn't really get it haha :D

@justaspark Yeah, Adobe software isn't really known for being intuitive; although, compared to Photoshop or Premiere I think Lightroom is pretty much straight-forward. Plus, it helps that it is designed in such a way that the workflow in the development module starts at the top and ends at the bottom.

In any case, if you are finding yourself with nothing to do one of these days it might be a good idea to watch some tutorial videos. There are some great ones out there :)

Da wird mir ja schon beim Hinsehen schwindelig! :D Aber sehr cool! :)

Hi - I'm your get pushed partner for this week. My challenge is a photo that tell us something about you - could be a selfie - doesn't have to be your face. Hope that's okay.
