Taking a good photograph is a strange business. Sometimes I can spend hours out on my own, concentrating on getting the best shots possible – and I'll come home with a series of disappointing images that never see the light of day. Yesterday, by comparison, I only went out for a short time, had to take most shots one-handed as I had Finley hanging from the other, and came back with five that I like (including yesterday's portrait of Fin). Of the remaining four, I like this one because it's a bit different, tomorrow's is Libby's favourite, the one after that is possibly the weakest of the four, and I'll post my favourite last (i.e. on Thursday).
As for this one, as you can see, the original is quite flat:
Normally I try to avoid clipping the highlight or shadow details in an image, but in this instance I think the end result is a lot more interesting. As always, let me know what you think.
