Reflections Weekend--goose on the Sava

This is for James's Reflections Weekend, and I' hope you'll pop over there to see what others have posted. Here I am fiddling with the HDR program I was sent by my fellow Belgrade blogger,Vlada, who posted a similar one a few days ago. I truly think we must have taken the photos within hours of each other, although it's not the same boat..... (see his photo.)

This one's a keeper. Nice shot.

Beautiful photo! It has an almost surrealistic feel to it that really appeals to me.

Nice, serene image.

Jacob said...

It's a beautiful photo in its own right...and I do like the effect. Have a great weekend!

I thought this was an HDR when I saw it on the portal. Very good work, especially for an early effort. The light and color tonality is attractive. HDRs are tricky, though - if you push the effect too far it can get grainy and you have some of that in the sky. Let's see more of these.

It's beautiful! I wish I knew how to make a picture like this.

Tash said...

Aha! Looks like you've been painting again, Beebs. Fabulous image. How did you get the goose in that perfect position too.
Last Friday, I spent a good while searching for more info on the RR posts and tracks you posted. I think that image is wonderful too. I located it on Google maps (gotta love Google!) and then found some other photographs on the net of the site, but no luck on the origin of the beautiful columns.
But I sure enjoyed my virtual walk along the banks of Sava and Dunav.

Oh, I love all the colors and the softness of the background.

Although I appreciate photography in its own right, this photo reminds me of a very serene watercolor. It is beautiful.

Sharon Creech said...

Yes, very beautiful and painterly. I don't know what HDR is but will go find out right now. . .

Thanks for your notes to me!

Joanne said...

Looks like a painting! Beautiful:)

Daryl said...

WOW .. love this and that duck .. the perfect touch .. LOL .. I like HDR .. Picnik.com offers an HDR-ish effect ..

Rebecca said...

Agree with Joanne. I could see this one as a puzzle. That goose is just a perfect addition. How nice of him to comply.

Gaelyn said...

I really like the affect you got.

Vlada Jablanov said...

Great choice for HDR....and great result :-))

I love the picture. The filter adds much as well. It has such a painted feel and adds a sense of mystery.
