On or In Water – Cee’s Black and White Challenge

Cee’s B & W Challenge: In or On WaterDSC_0056 (3)

DSC_0133 (2)Tybee Tabby has moved…so there probably will be fewer seaside pictures.  Considering how bad I have been about posting lately, you are probably surprised to see any pictures.  I’ll try to improve.

We do have a lake nearby and that is where the second picture was taken.  The first is from my back yard.  I have a pretty little sun porch and can see the birds and squirrels from my couch.

As always, I hope you enjoy.

Cee’s Photo Challenge: Leading Lines

Cee’s Photo Challenge: Leading Lines

Here are my photos for Cee’s Leading Lines Challenge.  I hope you enjoy…

DSC_0227 (6) (Almost) straight line of the railing supporting my two friends, the wood storks.

DSC_0212

The horizon makes a nice line on this photo, but perhaps more prominent are the supports for the nets radiating off the boat.

DSC_0226

Lots of lines in this one.  The edge of the bookshelf gets the lead in my mind.  P.S. Say hi to Swampy, our new kitten, who has at least tripled in size since this photo was taken.

DSC_0028 (2)From horizontal to vertical…this post provides a strong linear element.

…And finally for bonus points

DSC_0041 (2)The curve of the shore moving into the oyster bed draws the eye in this evening shot.

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.
