The Magnificent Peacock

I got lucky when this magnificent peacock decided to climb a dead tree stump in the morning light. I took these pics from quite far off from a Jeep during a Safari at Yala National Park in Sri Lanka.

The National Park is a must visit for nature lovers and photographers. I was not lucky enough to see a leopard but I got a lot of bird pics which I will be posting over the coming weeks.

Rise and Shine

Heres a shot from a trip i went last weekend. I did post a few shots highlighting the vastness of lake superior before. But what caught my attention in this shot is the sky. Dense clouds, sunrise, a tiny boat and a vast lake… makes one dramatic combination 🙂 Sometimes shots such as these remind me of how tiny we are when compared to elements of nature.

I am often confronted with the question of drawing a line between the amount of post-processing and showcasing an image as I saw it on location. For this one, I hardly did anything, except for a slight bump in brightness and contrast. Just to give you an idea of how much more dramatic the image can be, take a look at this edited version:HERE. I am sure some of you ask the same question to yourself before sharing, where do you draw a line? Do you like processing the shots or do you prefer to share images as shot, straight out of the camera? I would love to hear your opinions in the comments below! 🙂
