I accidently posted two pictures today, so act surprised tommorrow if you already saw the other one. On another note check out my recent post on my blog and let me know what you think. I’m reading a biography on Ansel Adams and read an interesting statement.
Ok, I need your opinions again. Color or Black and white I did a bunch of cleaning up on this one because it had a bunch of powerlines and junk that I found disctracting. Here’s the original if you are curious. The truck isn’t in focus as much as I had hoped for, but that’s what happens when you hold the camera out the top of a moving car through a sun roof. :)
I took my kids to a park the other night and between them and their cousins they scared off every goose, duck or other type of bird around this pond. It was interesting to watch them as they floated along. Most of them tended to stay in little groups, but this one duck I noticed seemed to go to each group and each time the group would swim away. I guess we’ll never know what made this guy an outcast but it was kinda sad watching him swimming all alone.
I’m not really so vain as to think you want to look this close at me. I have been wanting to experiment with up close shots and for a lack of willing subjects I used myself. Just messin around. And, I’m not normally quite this serious! :)
Here’s a little color…From a couple of weeks ago during a early morning walk.
It’s a little more centered than I intended, but oh well. Oh, and I lied when I said one more black and white yesturday. Here’s another. :)
Ok, one more black and white. Nothing special, just messing around just after sunset. Process: Slight crop, gradient map adjustment layer with black and white gradient. Clone tool to clean up the leaves on the top and bottom edge. Two passes through Neat Image to remove noise. I’ll get back to color stuff some time…or maybe not. :) Here is the original if you are curious.
