p.1 #1 · In Flights + Caravaggio styled portrait!


I happened to like Caravaggio paintings A LOT (so dramatic). He often uses dark bgs and upper corners lighting, so the other day I noticed that my downtown pond is full of REALLY DARK spots as the midway sun works it's way through the branches.
I thought I'd give it a try NO FLASH
1.
Note: NO shadows deepened on these shot. Shadows slider to 0 in Raw. CS4 used ONLY for web resize/resharp!





Another shot...this was just a spot-light on the water NO FLASH again :
2.






On to IFs now..the husband prefers light it appears
3.






This one shot from Mini Cooper John Works car while goin' to work
i'll call it the Italian Job
4. Egret fly over





5. Osprey from US this summer:

I thought Caravaggio was some sort of salumi

I do like the dramatic ducks Nello, something a bit different from you. Mr D flying past the mottled background is a nice shot. Hey was some hot chick driving the Works Mini while you were shooting I'm loving both the Egret and the Osprey

Great shots all around buddy, it's been a while since you posted, I was getting worried

Drive by shootings in broad daylight OK, my picks are the last two. I might put more sky in front of the osprey than behind it.

Excellent job, Nello. Love the lighting in the first two images especially in the very first one
Lovely bg in the third shot. Good job with the two IF shots, but the sky in the last one looks better on my monitor Well done!

Nello, the dark places and dark lights in your pond with the ducks have resulted in excellent and unusual images...and that unusual makes them doubly excellent.
The mallard in a full throttle takeoff is also done very nicely......boy, how I love BIF shots against such warm coloured and varied background.
The egret and the osprey are pretty much spot on, although the fish hawk placement in the frame could be a subject of some discussion.

A really nice set Nello. The first two are quite attractive, with a bit of a different look. The IFs are good too.

What is everybody looking at. #1 is the pick. It could be "worked" a bit to produce something extra special. It's ready for the wall. Don

Hey Nello, that Mrs. Mallard is looking pretty artsy-fartsy! Chiaroscuro/ Caravaggio-esque. I missed your Eye-talian take on birds when I was on my, er, "hiatus," and from what Tim says sounds like you were AWOL from FM for a bit, too. So, glad we decided to come back at the same time!

Best Wishes,
Steve

Wooow I turn my back for half a day and a crowd showz up

Salumi?
No hot chick drivin' our toyz...in fact no chick period In Italy we say: " Donna al volante = pericolo costante!" meaning "Woman behind the wheel = constant danger!"
Now that I posted it I see the osprey is too close to the left side of the frame

Drive by shooting not my speciality (all the cars i'm drivin' r too damn loud ) but I can see it has an appeal
You're right on the osprey...I guess I hadn't had my espresso when I PP that shot
The more I look at it the more it bugs me

Thx David! wasn't quite sure how this experiment will work out but i'm glad I gave it a try

2 thumbs up from the Maestro
Nothing can escape your eyez...yes the sky in the egret was "worked" on in PP because it was a rather dull blue-greysh colour
