Project 52 – Entry #6
The photographic goal for this week was to capture a sunset. My plan went a little awry when I got to the pond not far from my home and came across a whole bunch of geese (I guess the correct term is a gaggle) and ducks and their respective families.
So forgetting about my original quest for the moment off I went chasing my fine feathered friends.
This duck was watching over its many ducklings as they were playing in a muddy patch on the side of the path. She was just in a perfect spot because the setting sun was coming through the bushes which gave this shot it’s golden glow.
As the geese were parading down the path I got down low and prepared to take a picture of them walking towards me when all of the sudden this little girl ran in front of me to see the babies. Perfect! Sometimes things happen for a reason. I desaturated the background a touch to get a more “vintage” look.
Finally what I came for. This is a 3 shot bracketed exposure processed as a HDR image (this post is getting lengthy so I’ll save the HDR conversation for next week’s post)
A Parting Shot…someone wasn’t so impressed with my picture taking abilities.
