Looking Down

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 31 August 2019 in Animal & Insect.

There is a tree in my yard that I sometimes sit under. The other day, this squirrel was sitting right above me on a branch looking down. The bright sun through the leaves made the image harsh. I fooled around with the posterize effect to see what I could come up with.

I think the squirrel, was making sure that Scout was not hanging around. A very nice result with this image Elaine. 5*

You are lucky with your garden Elaine, beautiful squirrel and photo.

@Willem: I spend a lot of time in the garden because I have difficulty walking. So I watch the birds and the squirrels. They make me happy!

These guys are always figuring out how to get a nut or seed. I guess he was trying to impose his will on you. ;-)

@Steve Rice: Probably because I bought some nuts. He knows that I am the nut lady!

nice close-up. your image manipulation works well on the squirrel and the branches and softens the background with almost a bokeh effect
