I recently went to a flea market, and as I was walking around, I snapped a few pictures of anything that caught my eye. I really liked the colors and textures of this string. I was interested in learning how to make an hdr, or high dynamic range, image in Photoshop Elements. I looked it up online and after tweaking various the lighting, this is the image that I came up with. I lightened the shadows while darkening the highlights at the same time. While it is not a true hdr image, it gives the colors a glowing and eye-popping effect.

It is very interesting to see how much a photograph can change when the lighting is changed. Photoshop, or even Photoshop Elements, allows you to alter a photo in so many different ways.  Next time you take a photograph, play around with it in Photoshop. You may be surprised at what you create! It could be even cooler than the original image!
