ONE FOUR CHALLENGE – DEC14-WK-4

My contribution for

Robyn’s

‘Captivate Me’ 

blog

One-Four-Challenge

This week I have applied Picasa’s

Duo Tone with brightness set at about 75%

on the original photo.

As previously stated, this is an excuse to try new things,

experiment, if you will, with Picasa.

I think this is ‘different’ but it is not my favourite.

The original photo

which was cropped from this one below…

DSC_1810-001

For the last image I have added some fill light

to make the objects clearly visible.

These photos were taken with Cee’s glass, or light challenge in mind.

Unfortunately, or fortunately, I did not have the

F Stop, ISO or Shutter speed set correctly and

the photos were much darker than expected.

My guess would be a slower shutter would have helped.

Still…there was a silver lining…

In keeping with Robin’s suggestion …

all feedback or comments are welcome.

Odd Ball

Week 42

~~~~~

The magpies were in our backyard this afternoon.

(First photo taken through fly-wire door…hence softness)

magpie_2333I decided to feed them some bread as  usual.

Mum, swooped in quickly to within a few feet

of the back door.

Then…we heard it.

The young one squawking for a feed…

and it would not come and feed of its own accord.

Note: bread visible in bottom left corner.

sparrow_2376In the meantime, while ‘mum’ was feeding her baby,

this little sparrow came and helped itself to several

pieces of bread and all the while

the young magpie squawked for food.

There may have been a young a sparrow around…

but somehow, I doubt it.
