Day 14—A Little Sheepish

Well, I’m feeling a little sheepish. None of the photos I took today were remotely satisfactory but, I took another look at the sheep I’d photographed earlier, when I pointed my camera directly into the setting sun. I liked the silhouette created by the sun behind the wool, but the photo was, overall, lackluster because the bright setting sun colored the entire photo, a pale yellow with white highlights. Then, in Aperture, I applied the curves auto setting and a preset called Intensify. Et voilà! A photo of the day! I don’t think the people at Recording Images would approve, but technically it meets the “backlighting” challenge that is still on until midnight. Hmmmm. Maybe I should submit it and brace myself for another honest critique.
