    So I went out last night to meet with a client about some upgrades to his driveway lighting. It was a crappy night out but I thought the 4 main backyard trees looked really great while flowering white. I am no pro with a camera and I can guarantee you the place looks much better in person. The over exposed pics look a little better for the foreground but then and lights in the deep back look way over exposed. I dont know but I figured I would share a few... Feel free to beat me up :hammerhead:

    I am pretty sure most of know how nice that looks. Really cool. I thought snow storm and power failures at first but maybe I am just gun shy after our fall snowstorm.

    With the size of generator at that house all of Lawnsite could plug their homes in and be just fine. But one day I will get better at pictures. I took this with my new canon sx40. I have a few more I might throw up of the courtyard but they are bright and I do not have a photo editing software.

    Very beautiful. I suggest also getting some tight shots of flowers and branches - nice to intersperse these in your portfolio.

    Also - lose the date!

    It's easy with Photoshop. Just add a layer above the image, put your logo in that layer and adjust opacity to the desired transparency. There are probably many other programs that add watermarks (maybe one came with your camera), check the instructions.

    One of the easiest photo manipulation software packages I have found is picasa from google. http://picasa.google.com/ You can do a lot with it and all very easily, including water marks. I use it for 90% of my photos. I still use Photoshop too, but usually just for 'production photos' that are being printed in high res. ads, etc.
