Created as a companion piece to Swan Song.
The swan in this image was captured in April of 2010 at the Presqui’le Provincial Park, Brighton, ON, Canada with fellow Bubblers Beve Brown-Clark, Renee Dawson and Lynda McDonald. I was using the Nikon D300 with the 18-200mm vr Nikon lens and the UV filter. Shutter was 1/800, aperture was f/14.0, exp. -0.33, spot metering, iso 320. The clouds were shot from my backyard in Maryland with the Nikon D300 and the 18-200mm vr Nikon lens as well … shutter 1/1600, aperture f/10.0, exp. 0.00, pattern metering, iso 320.
The images were combined and textures from Florabella added in Photoshop CS4. A flood filter from Flaming Pear was soft-light blended over the natural marsh water to pick up the shades from the clouds and sky.
