Hi,

I'm Ingunn. This blog is about learning to make photos instead of just taking them. This is where I collect and express ideas and thoughts, and sometimes I might get sidetracked, too! There is so much to be learned. I have an urge for making life better, simpler and tastier. My picture galleries are in the sections travel and portfolio. I write in English, but I am Norwegian, and comments are most welcome in both languages.

Project | Pond study, take two

I went back to the pond today to see if I could get any better captures than I already had. The aim was to capture the light, the mood, the colors of the place. I feel that today's best shot was this minimalist rendition of two straws bending towards the surface. It is late fall here, and the colors are fading quickly, most of the leaves are gone already. The pond feels empty and abandoned, waiting for frost to arrive. These straws are in their final stage, and yet they are bending over beautifully, creating mirror reflections in the wet surface.

I haven't done much post processing on this one, but I gave the colors and the contrast a little boost, and I darkened the edges a bit, too. 

I've entered this picture in a challenge on the blog Wonderland. It is called Earth Wonders. Pop over to check out her interesting themes, changing every wednesday!
