An unexpected object of beauty
2 photos for you and I’m going to ask you to choose again…. I do like to make you work !!
They were taken at my local lake at just after 10 this morning. At last we have some frosty weather and ice.
I used my tripod 🙂 however did I manage without one before? The first was just taken in the normal way; manually focused. The light was bright so just as an experiment I thought I’d see what would happen if I used the Scene -Sunrise setting on my D5100 and lo and behold it came out blueish..which I rather like.
The golden glow is because the plastic milk bottle is used to keep straw floating just below the surface to help prevent blue algae and the bright sun was making it glow..
So I wonder which one you prefer?
Thanks for all the comments – bananabatman suggested B&W so I’ve taken out all the colour and added one. I’m afraid I am more of an artist than a technician ( I have soooo much to learn !) and with my primitive Microsoft Office Picture Manager I have tried to tone down the blue but can’t seem to get the gold warmed up grrr… ..here they are anyway.
I thought I liked the 2nd bluest one best but the more I look at these the more I like the 1st one – the original golden one which is the way it was when it first caught my eye…
