TODAY’S THEME…………………..REFLECTIONS

18 Mar

These pictures were taken today….with my ‘almost’ new SD card…..from my other camera and I really DON’T like playing “musical cards”.

Not wanting to put ALL my eggs in 1 basket I ordered a 3 X 8 gig QUALITY SD cards from Amazon.ca……couldn’t believe the great price AND free shipping.

Sorry…..not intended to be am Amazon ad there but PRETTY excited.

These were both taken with the 60 D and at the little creek that crosses my property.

I think the different coloration in them is due mostly to the background enviornment as I did no colour modification aside from crop, reduce size and sharpen a tad.

Each has it’s own appeal and the second one looks as if it is clouds in the sky reflecting on the water…..in fact it was a PURE blue sky and what you see is residual ice under the water….made much more clear in the upper picture.

Just a few feet apart they are, I think radically different and I really like the ‘watercolourish’ rippling of the reed reflections of the lower one…..wish I had had the skill to do them that well when I was painting watercolours…..sigh.

 

I hope you enjoy them both and if you have a preference….SHOUT out!

    the delicate reflections of the fluffy reeds are cool, I really like the colouring of the second however they both do have their own qualities and am glad I don’t have to pick between them

    I hate to choose, but if forced I like the coloring in the 2nd photo. Cool photos, and glad you got new cards for your camera.

    I like the colours and reflections in the second one – but the first has good clarity and maybe would be nice in B&W…

    I prefer the bottom one: the water is the whole “canvas.”

    The second image is so complex with its combo of reflections and patterns…lots to study here.
