Cee’s Photo Challenge: Simplicity

Cee’s Photo Challenge: Simplicity

DSC_0073Here is my first shot (a very lucky one).  Single egret against a blue grey sky…I was even able to manage the rule of three (sort of).

DSC_0073 (4) Of course I had to play with the shot.  Some cropping, changed to black and white and using the vignette feature on the editing tool.

DSC_0153I took this shot this afternoon.  I was able to get fairly close to the egret.

DSC_0153 (2)Here is the same shot, cropped and converted to black and white.

DSC_0153 (3)Same shot with the edges darkened using the vignette tool again.  I thought it brought the focus in on the bird.

DSC_0170Here’s my final series….again taken this afternoon.  Pretty butterfly.

DSC_0170 (2)Here is a simple crop to focus in on the butterfly.

DSC_0170 (3)And the final version with the background softened to make it more “dreamlike”.

Let me know what you think.  Positive or Negative.  I welcome your comments, since they help me to improve.

I retired from a rule-driven profession and moved to the beach in Georgia with my husband. Now I spend my time doing fun and creative things and enjoying the warm weather and my beautiful surroundings.
