Mostly photography and some other musings.

+ high-res version


This peacock was a bit difficult to photograph.

I wanted a full frontal view, for later cropping in a square format. That was my initial idea. I ended with a lot of shots of the bird, and I found this to be the one I most liked. The issue I had was that I needed to crop a lot the picture, to get rid of the people who was around it. I think that affected a bit the sharpness of the feather patterns. The colours saturation is boosted on purpose. I’m very fond of this picture. It was my first accepted submission in the Pentax Photo Gallery. I forgot to mention, this was taken in Leeds Castle, a place  I visited a few years ago. I will post more pictures taken there some day.

      The guy didn’t stop moving, and only displayed his open feathers when he wanted, not when I told him to do it! 🙂
