SKYSCAPES WITH ADDED EFFECTS FOR FUN! (A PICASA EDITING PHOTO BLOG)

Hi Everybody!!
Having some fun tonight.  I wanted to share with You some of the effects in Picasa Editing to inspire You to try some different things with your photos.  As You know, my posts are generally directed to the newbies and amateur nature photographers. I am sure the Professionals do not visit my blog! (Anyway, there are more substantial editing programs out there for the advanced Photographer). 
Picasa is our Focus tonight. 
It is a fun, one button, instant gratification program.
I shot some skyscapes in town yesterday and below I show the original before added effects. Then I show the image with the Picasa effect added. I hope You will check it out and have some fun too!
Enjoy!

Editing features

Picasa provides you with the editing tools you need to fix common problems and create unique effects in your photos. Double-click the photo you'd like to edit and use the editing tabs to the left:
Basic Fixes: Make simple fixes to your photos. Fixes range from removing red-eye to cropping photos to one-click fixes for color and contrast.
Tuning: Use these advanced editing features to fix contrast and remove color cast. Adjust shadows and highlights to add some dimension to your photos or brighten up the foreground with fill light to salvage otherwise dark photos.
Effects: Choose from over 30 effects, ranging from simple filters such as black and white coloring and sharpening to more advanced photographic filters.
