This image is also available at Lois Bryan at fine art america in an exciting variety of framing and matting options.

Image taken in the early morning of April 25, 2008 with the Nikon D40x, the 18-135mm Nikon lens and the (evil old) tripod. Shutter 1/640, aperture f/6.3, exp. -0.33, iso 400. Various steps in Photoshop including blending a fully “vintaged” version with the original and adding a gradient overlay layer.

My apologies for those of you who may recall a similar image that I posted some time ago and which I’ve since removed. Have learned a thing or two in the interim. The beauty of the ’Bub in action once again!!!!

    great shot Lois. great use of light. And you didn’t even need your D300 :-)

  • thanks so much, Dave!!!! This experience actually lasted three mornings … I was a madwoman to get it right. The D40x works beautifully … especially on a tripod … I still have it and still love it!!
