Bubbles Unconventional

Bubbles Unconventional

I have tried shots like this many times…trying to catch the Bubbles from an unconventional angle. After all, I have hundreds of shots from the end of the pond. Somehow they just never have enough drama. This one is different. The play of light and shadow on the foreground rocks, echoed as it is by the cloud shadows on the slope behind, and the wisp of clouds overhead, make it a satisfying shot, and a worthy tribute to the Bubbles. Of course, from this angle they are much less bubble like, but we still know what they are.

Sony DSC H50 at full wide. F5.6 @ 1/400th @ ISO 100. Programed auto.

Recovery for the sky in Lightroom, then added Clarity and Vibrance and Landscape sharpen preset. I may have moved the blackpoint to the right a little.
