BIRDS 75 – MALLARD
July 15, 2015 12 Comments
A Minimalist image – some ripples and a silhouetted duck.
The up-curled tail feathers show this to be a male (drake) Mallard, a very common and often tame waterbird here in the UK.
This is a colour image, albeit one with little colour in it. And I’ve used CEP4‘s Cross Balance filter to give the effect of Tungsten (i.e. artificial light) film that has been used in daylight, which has resulted in the image’s cool, faintly bluish tints.
The previous image in this Birds category also showed Mallards at Herons Green, but in a very different style.
D700 with 70-300 Nikkor at 300mm; 200 ISO; Color Efex Pro 4, using the Cross Balance filter.
