When Suki and I went kayaking, I had my camera along but forgot to bring a waterproof bag large enough to put it in. I borrowed a small pocket camera, which fit in a ziplock baggie. When kayaking, it is always best to expect the worst.
This first pic isn’t bad. It’s clear and sharp from edge to edge and the color isn’t bad. I dinked around with it, but one must always start with a good photo. My regular camera would have been better but at least I had one!
Here’s another view of that same area. I climbed up on the island and took the photo from a slightly higher elevation.
This one had to be dodged on the left hand side; the colors there were dark and muddy. I’ve found a way to do this non-destructively, so the original isn’t screwed up. I wanted to bring out those whites, especially along that part of the shore. It almost glows, doesn’t it? And it adds interest to that part of the photo. I also love the white bubbles in the water there.
Suki is very small in this photo. I’m facing north and I noticed the camera lens blurred the photo slightly on the right. You can see it in the foreground leaves. I could have cropped them out, but I liked the deep green of the trees on that side, and the darkness below them.
This last photo again shows blurring on the right. I cropped out the worst of it but it’s still noticeable. Meh. It’s a Nikon Coolpix. I’m not impressed. I do like that falling drift of leaves just slightly left of center. Lovely.
Today was much like last Tuesday. It hit 70 and was sunny and warm with the wind from the south. I should have gone out and played but instead, I remained inside working. Sometimes I am a dull person indeed.
If another such day occurs this week, I will take the camera to the local zoo. 🙂
