Q: Why are some of the contest photos obviously photoshopped?

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

We were headed into Chicago, for a birthday weekend, which is an 8 hour drive. Flying down Lake Shore Drive (about 70 mph as I recall), I saw the storm cloud forming over Lake Michigan. However, I was acutely aware that there was no way Tom was going to stop until we pulled into the condo garage. Then there was unpacking and dinner and whatever else.

I wanted the shot really bad, so I rolled down the window, turned to face it, and held the button down. I didn't have to pray for rain. That was a given.

The result pleased me and proved a point. Go with what ya' got..

    Beautiful, Bailey. I did a double take, thinking it was a familiar area along the St. Lawrence. This is better.
