April Squares: Bright Spots

For the April Squares challenge this month, Becky has chosen the theme “Bright”. My entries this month will all be called Bright Spots. My photos in this series are selected from a project I am currently working on. I have received a digital photo frame as a gift, and I have been going through my archives for photos to include. What fun it has been to do that, a bright spot in my life for sure. I’ll include a bit about each photo entry. Here is today’s entry:

My original file looked like this:

ISO 200 f/7.1 105mm 1/100sec

For the square edit, I have added the LUT, Bakersfield, and also a vignette:

ISO 200 f/7.1 105mm 1/100sec

I chose that LUT because it was very similar to the tones of the original image but emphasized the soft feel of the scene. The crop took care of the distracting wire.

Added to Day 8 of the April Squares challenge.

  1. Seeing a wildlife photo with such a fine composition (and such sharp focus on the robin’s head and prey) should put a bright spot in anybody’s day.

    So glad the wire was cropped out and that the dark gray pipe was there to be a contrasting background for the light brown insect.
