Home, Home On the Range

I love Picnik.

Today we went for a drive through the beautiful Kansas praries. Here's the original I shot today out of the car:

Tv mode. ISO 100, f/3.5, 1/800 shutter speed.

Here's the same picture after 10 minutes on Picnik:

First of all, I decided to upgrade to the Premium account, cause I don't have Photoshop and it's only $5 a month. I used the Curves feature to lighten up the entire picture. Then I used the paintbrush to paint the sky/grass back to the original color. Then I ran it through the Vibrance feature, and used the paintbrush to paint the rearview mirror image back to the original (after being lightened) color. And, voila! Thank you, Picnik.
