I often take photos from the moving car as seen by reflection in the passenger side mirror and how the image is partially framed from the Prius roof.

Although much of this photo is as taken, I did make a few enhancements… I worked with the contrast to make my image in the mirror more visible.  In Photoshop Elements I added the birds from another photo. After I ran it through Topaz Clean, Crisp Edge.

We were driving along the top of the mountain ridge outside Santa Barbara last May when I took this photo.

Happiness Is…. a ride in the desert in a Pinzagauer with a crazy driver who makes it feel like a roller coaster.  That’s me, screaming with joy on our December desert ride.

Processed in both Aperture and Topaz Adjust Buz Sim.  (Happiness is also having great photo software to play with.)
