Photography, isn't all about shooting and capturing objects, it needs a certain topic, even all of us, hobbyists, professionals, and photobloggers, do the same thing, capturing and making a topic out of the captured photo.

I've been doing research about photography, and it's not all about shooting, but editing it in a photo editor program, such as Adobe Photoshop CS, CS2, and CS3 (not to mention CS4). 70 percent of the time and effort of a shutterbug, would be spent alone in photoshoots, and the 30 percent of his or her time would be on the computer, editing the lightnings and enhancing the settings, but for a professional's point of view, editing is minimized in such ways, because they shoot photos accurately, and it would be expensive if a pro is using a filmed camera, not the digital one, capturing and scanning the hard copy into the computer for edit,a very expensive way, if you have multiple photos.

Using DSLR is an easy way to enhance your photos, you can directly transfer them into the computer by only using a cord.

Although I'm not very aware of the Photoshop's updates and new plug-ins, I still manage to enhance my photographs and make it into a more presentable look. Recently, I've learned an easy technique to enhance the "sky" backdrop in a photograph, that is, using gradients to divide the lightning in the sky.

SKYLINES: in this photo, I used a gradient of two colors, yellow, and blue, to emphasize the silhouette of a treePOSTAGE: the output of putting a gradient in this photo, made an older look on the photograph itself.
In addition, not all photos are applicable for a gradient effect, some would be crapped. It just depend on the lightning of the photo.
