This was taken on a beautiful sunny evening in a nearby field where there was plenty of mud to enjoy. :)
Post-processing: Curves, curves, curves, selective color saturation/desaturation, color balance to bring up the highlights, fading and blending in soft light and multiply mode, sharpening faded to 100% in luminosity mode.
Still working on that tutorial for anyone who's been following along. :) It's quite a bit more complicated to write out than I thought it would be, and is probably getting too philosophical at this point, but I'm working on it! Thanks for your patience.
is this pic/reflection for real? If au naturel, it is fantastic!
Yes, the whole scene is real - I don't have the talent to fake something like this! Just another day of mud puddles in Durham Township.
Quelle belle symétrie !!
Le reflet dans l'eau , les couleurs , tout est très beau .
Very beautiful !
This is the most lovely photograph I have ever seen. It makes me feel very close to the person I was at five years old. I am saving up to order the print.
this is possibly my favorite of yours.
it's just perfect, well done
Timeless. I've been that kid. I've had that kid. I know that kid.
i like the subject, but this photo is ruined by what appears to be extremely cheesy photoshopping. lay off the wipes, and instead make judicial use of cropping to emphasize the boy.
Thinking about my 6 years old boy when he is walking with me, it seems to be very difficult , not to step in or even jump in to those very attractive mudpuddles.Also when he's not allowed to because of his still spotless cloth, and keep spotless. I have to smile while looking at this beautiful shot!
very nice photo and of course the moment is perfect
Very fine. Sensitive and nostalgic.
