BELINDA GROVER PHOTOGRAPHY

STOPS ALONG THE WAY

MALLARD IN BLACK AND WHITE

14 Comments

Duck in BWI featured a version of this photo several years ago. When I look back at some of my older photographs, I see what I might try differently. I converted the photo to black and white, reduced the clarity and saturation and removed a bit of vegetation that overlapped the mallard’s bill. I think it makes for a better photograph. My style and skill have developed over the years and it’s nice to see the progression.  Of course when you have a subject like this you can’t go too far wrong 😊.

  5. It’s fun to play with photos and see what you can turn out. Of course it helps to have a good photo to start with, and you have no problem there.
