Surrealistic Christmas Tree.  For the first time ever since migrating to the Macintosh, I fired up Photoshop Elements using VMWare Fusion.  Photoshop Elements is a “pixel editor,” which lets you do funkier things than what is available in Aperture.  Now, most of the time, I’m not that interested in that kind of stuff, but really… who needs to see another normal picture of a Christmas tree?  This is the “Glowing Edges” filter.

Update 12/22/08: Improved photo- more glow, same low price!
