It was raining pretty hard when I climbed into bed in the wee hours of the morning. Even though I knew the mercury was supposed to drop overnight, I was not expecting to find everything outdoors covered with snow when daylight returned.
This week’s photo challenge from The Daily Post is shadowed.
For this week’s Photo Challenge, find the shadows. You can choose a literal interpretation and shoot an actual shadow, or you can play with the light and dark, and create a moody scene, or capture your subject in a rich and interesting way.
I had taken this shot of my shadowy backyard about an hour before I saw the theme for this week’s photo challenge in my WordPress reader. Pretty neat coincidence, eh? To make my photo a little more dramatic, I used Lightroom to desaturated it, and then I tinkered with the exposure levels of the highlights and shadows in the snow.
For those of you who are still reading this post (in other words, those of you who didn’t stop by just to look at the picture) I want to let you know that I’m taking part in Blogging 101 and that I have started another blog called Snapshots, Snippets and Scribbles. So far I’ve been a really bad Blogging 101 “student”. I’ve only completed (well, sort of completed) two assignments this week. Oh well, there’s lots of time left to catch up. Anyway, that blog is going to have a much wider focus than this one. It’s going to be my catchall personal blog. If you’re interested, here’s the link.
