I decided I should start to use my 50mm – as the eye sees things – lens (I think it’s Bryan Peterson that raves about this lens) so, as I had a couple of hours this afternoon, I walked to the shores of Lake Ontario…everytime I use this lens I wonder why I don’t use it more often… fast, sharp and light-weight (bonus!)… if anyone reading this doesn’t own a 50mm go get one… they are really inexpensive.
Anyway, from the shores of Lake Ontario the Ring-billed Gulls (not “seagulls”) and the Canada Geese (not “Canadian Geese”), a giddy and active group this afternoon, say hello to all you Redbubblers… one guy even did a little dance for you all. I think he’s on the “Dancing with the Stars” line-up for next month. There’s also lots of gulls perched on the breakwater.
I de-saturated the image in ACR and fooled with the contrast to oomph the whole thing a bit… the light was quite interesting late this afternoon and just increasing the black point a bit resulted in something I liked – I hope you do too!
