I guess it was just matter of time before I accidentally fired my camera at the same time a flash photographer fired theirs. Here are the results. Please let me know what you think of the flashed image and if I should experiment with that next year. Thanks.
Photographing at a game farm gives you not only the opportunity to get great photographs that would take years of work and cause undo hardship on wild animals, but it also gives you the chance to refine your wildlife photography skills by practicing various techniques that you can carry over into the field.
In the last batch of “streaming cloud” images the everyone seemed to prefer the B&W versions to the color versions and I tend to agree. I have found since most of these images are taken mid-day, unless there is a strong color foreground element, the B&W’s work better...
This time when I converted them I found in this first image, the color image evoked a more calming and soothing feeling then the B&W conversion, which is more ominous. What do you think?
Here are those images and several others. I am showing both the color versions and the B&W’s so you can think about how this may apply to your own images.
