A few more pictures from yesterday’s jaunt. Some post-processing (cropping, rotation, and color correction/B&W).

I love the color mixture of the featured image and it was one of the few where I utilized the wide-angle option of the camera. Most of the pictures I took are done with a “linear” focal range, meaning that they tend to not have the curvature of the wide-angle. I took several others of that picnic table with the linear angle on the camera and they just lacked that sense of huge that works with this picture in my opinion.

I was walking past a church yesterday and really started grooving on the interplay of the angles of the shadows cast by the railing onto stairs. While it “works” as a color photo, I think the B&W with a high contrast (to accentuate the boldness of the shadows) feels best and makes it feel otherworldly.

I’m less pleased with how the above waterfall came out. I think it would have turned out better if the sun had been behind me instead of as a background light source. Everything feels a bit washed out as a result, even for pre-green spring. I think the water and the balls would have had more “pop” to them later on in the day, when the sun would have been behind me.

Remember I don’t know what the hell I am doing when it comes to photography. I’m just trying to figure it out.
