I had the distinct pleasure of being sick again for the last several days. I sort of half way enjoyed it the first time around, not so much the second. Since I'm still recovering I'm just going to make this a quick picture post of one of my favorite recent photos. Roll over the image with your mouse to see the unedited version.
As you can see I had to do a bit more editing than normal with this shot, but I'm very happy with the results. When shooting it I had been waiting for Clara to get in just the right position relative to the ducks and at the last second Elizabeth lunged into the picture, trying to be a good big sister and keep her little sister from running off. I was pleased that I was able to successfully edit her out. (That sounds awfully harsh, doesn't it? Poor Elizabeth removed for the sake of photographic composition.)
I also applied a texture to this photo which gave some nice, subtle variation of tone to the grass color that I particularly like. I really had a lot of fun with this one, both in the shooting and in the editing.
Now, time to head off to bed early. Enjoy the rest of your week!
