Pond, Swan, Fall

We seem to be getting a lot of these moody fall days. I manage at least two falls each year. One in Maine, one in New Jersey, and one in New Mexico: mid-October, late-October, and mid-November. This year I will be in Germany in mid-November. I am not sure if that is fall there or not. We shall see.

This is a little pond on the back side of Lighthouse State Park in Cape May, New Jersey. I have never seen as may Mute Swans as there are this year. They are everywhere there is fresh water. A touch of fall in the foliage on the far side and the cat-tails  in the foreground give the image some depth.

Sony DSC H50 at 31mm equivalent. F4.0 @ 1/250th @ ISO 100. Programmed Auto.

Recovery in Lightroom for the sky. A touch of Fill Light for the foliage. Blackpoint slightly right. Added Clarity and Vibrance. Sharpen Landscapes preset.

From Cape May 10/09.
