Running... Again?

  If you know me you know there was a time about 10 years ago or so where I was running. A lot. At least 5 days a week and at least 5 miles a run. I wasn’t training, I wasn’t preparing for a race or a marathon. I just found myself enjoying the time spent running. I wasn’t obsessed with numbers, but I kept track of them all and liked seeing improvements in time and distances. It was good physical health and mental health. Then I tweaked my knee. Not bad enough that I couldn’t walk on it, just a tweak that told me I needed to back off of running for a little bit. So I decided on 2 weeks. At the end of 2 weeks I aborted a run very early as the pain was still there. 2 weeks became 3, became a month, became 5 years. 

Last of the Waterfalls

One of the things I struggle with as a photographer is trying new things. I find something that works and stick to it. Or, I have a tendency to only shoot 1 way. Such as when I was first trying out HDR. Everything I was shooting was for HDR. Problem is that not all shots lent themselves to good HDR shots. Plus, especially at the beginning, I wasn't sure what made a good HDR shot. Seriously, you should see my Aperture library, it's filled with crappy HDR shots that I keep around solely to remind me what works and what doesn't.

I did one thing different with this shot, I flipped the camera over on the tripod. No big deal, right? But I think it changes the entire picture. Then I thought I'd change it up a little more with a border from onOne's PhotoFrame 4.6. This is one of their many Acid Burn frames/borders available. I'm kind of up in the air about it. I like that it changes to photo feel up, but honestly I'm not sure I want to spend as much time figuring out a border for a shot. So what do you think? Border or border free? And of the 3 waterfalls shots which do you like?
