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……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… 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.
