Lens Artists: Light and Shadow

Patti’s Lens-Artist’s challenge reminds us of how light and shadow work together in our photos.

I love the early morning at my nearby lake. I think this little duckling is just perfect for this challenge. The early sun highlights his soft feathers. I also love how the water rings and the light sparkles around him.

This slideshow below shows how different edits can change the effects of lights and shadows:

Lights and shadows can really change the mood of a photo. Thank you for the challenge, Patti!

    The backlighting on the duckling really shows off his fluffiness! And I love your edits on that monochrome flower shot, especially the second and third (can’t choose between those two!)

    That is an interesting photo of the duck with the white feathers. It must be fun to experiment with the lighting.
