About the Image(s)

Happy New Year.
Here is my photo for this month. It is titled, Engagement Present. It was taken at Wakodahatchee, a water preserve, in DelRay Beach, Fl with a Nikon D3s with a Nikon 200-400mm f/4.0 lens at 380 mm, f/6.7, 1/1000, ISO 200, in RAW, processed with Adobe CC and converted to bw. I used a curves adjustment and dodging and burning to give a high key look. I am also attaching the original.

Art your image reminded to me when we used to solarize pictures. I'm sure that you too as well remember that trick in the dark room. So I did a little adjustment, I'm sure that you don't like it, but I do. Good job.   Posted: 01/09/2021 08:37:09

Very Creative Art. I tried playing with it but nothing I did looked as good as what you did. I like the very light grays. You made a busy photo into a peaceful one.
Well done.

Very interesting , creative and elegant. I really like the way you processed this image . It is very delicate and looks like a graphite or charcoal drawing ... This is something I would hang on my wall for sure ...Congrats!   Posted: 01/13/2021 19:45:03
