Flat Lighting was the normal of the day with brief glimpses of sunlight so ideal for landscape it was not. However I did do a bit of practice with swampscape to varying degrees of success/failure.
A lot of the color from last Saturday was gone on this Saturday and the leaves were falling. This was one of the boardwalks leading down to an observation point.
This is a part of the park that overlooks the Cooper River . This is a 5 shot stitched Pano I like the colors but I honestly do not know how I feel about this image. I would like the background a bit darker and I may play with some dodging and burning to see if I can get it closer to what I like. This will be a rainy day project .
This was one of those I missed the mark shots but at the same time I got closer than I did with a few other shots. There were a few that I wanted to do in Monochrome but the tones and shades were too similar and everything ended up muddy. I think 99% of that was due to the lighting conditions.
I mentioned flat lighting with moments of Great light. This next shot was a brief moment of light . 1 frame it was there next frame it was gonzo.
This Little Blue Heron was a pleasant surprise and I think it was both suprised by the turtle that it almost landed on. If the Heron had landed even 2 meters to the right I would not have been able to get a shot of it due to the grass in this part of the swamp.
