Cee’s Photo Challenge: Simplicity
Here 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).
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.
I took this shot this afternoon. I was able to get fairly close to the egret.
Here is the same shot, cropped and converted to black and white.
Same shot with the edges darkened using the vignette tool again. I thought it brought the focus in on the bird.
Here’s my final series….again taken this afternoon. Pretty butterfly.
Here is a simple crop to focus in on the butterfly.
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.
Here are two photos for you today. Last fall we were invaded by the butterflies and I took some close up shots.
The second is a sunset shot. Not sure that it is my all time favorite, but it is orange. : )
Yellow isn’t a color that I normally associate with the beach. I thought I would have difficulties finding even one photo for this challenge, but I found several. Let me know your favorite. : )
