"I Caught You a Delicious Bass"

When we were at the lake, I had a good deal going. Allen and Paso would catch all the fish, and I would eat them. Oh, I tried fishing, but it turns out I suck at it. The other guys, however, were fortunate enough to catch me a meal. The fish were trout, not bass, but Mr. Dynamite's immortal quote was too good to pass up.

This is the first image of this series that has undergone any significant processing, and it wasn't that significant. I was looking at Paso's photos of our trip when I saw a really cool silhouette of Allen by the water. I was instantly annoyed at myself for not having taken a similar photo. I looked through my archives to find an image that I could make into a silhouette.

Admittedly, this is not the way I would have taken this photo if I had the idea in mind from the start, but I'm determined to learn from my mistakes. I modified this picture by adding a blue filter and playing with the levels. It wasn't exactly a highly technical procedure, but I think it worked.

Canon PowerShot S2 IS, 52mm, f/4.5, 1/100 sec, ISO 50

Hi Timmybomb,

Still looking (see Paso shot).

I think I like this one, but I am not sure! The composition is surely excellent.

I am also unsure of "Flora Lake Done Right" - I think I like it, but I am uneasy with the foreground triangle.

Keep up the good work!!

Beautiful shot. It has all the right stuff for me at least. Simple, subtle, and it just feels good to look at it.

I like this one. Nice colors, nice job on the silhouette. It almost looks though like he's standing on part of the tree. (I know he's not, but it kinda looks that way). That's really the only thing that I find somewhat distracting. You did a great job on the composition too. Very nice.

You made a fine silhouette out of whatever you started with. The color looks effective picture.
