MacAulay - Scottish Clan and Tartan

The MacAulay Tartan, watercolor version

MacAulay Scottish Clan History on left. Motto: Danger is Sweet. This brass running dog paperweight is one of my favorite things.

Very cool post.
I love the watercolor :)

Love the way it turned out, and your choice of "preset." Seems to highlight the fun design of the dog. The table in the background turned into a really interesting abstract design element.
Still not tired of this yet. I think your pictures are better than the examples on their site. Why MacAuley, if I might ask? Not so keen on their motto.

Rosemary, this looks great. I purchased the app. Do you use a particular style setting or play around with each photo.

WHERE...did you find that wonderful paperweight? What a delight!

Anon....My grandmother was a McCauley and she was the most cautious person in the world. Also, this was the center of the book and the easiest to hold flat. Plus I liked the tartan pattern. Thanks for your kind words about my images.

Karen....I play around with each photo. Some presets I never use like "Soaked" -- too blurry. My favorites are Natural, Luminous, It's Technical, Travelogue, and Fashionable. Sometimes I use a border and sometimes I don't. Have fun.
