My favorite part about this photo, other than the fact that it is my mother and brother-in-law who are in it, well, and the fact that there is mist coming off the water, and the fact that the light is shining and reflecting off the nearby water, and….okay. One thing I like a lot about this picture is whatever object in the water they are going towards. Is that another Elephant hiding out underneath there? Is it a Hippopotamus? Water ripples are coming off of that thing. So what is it? I honestly don’t know. I was so busy taking the picture I kind of missed what was happening there. So for me, anything is in play.
One thing that is actually kind of funny is that I went to bring the color of this image into Topaz Black and White2, but it crashed on me…again. Does anyone else have problems with Topaz BW2???? Mine crashes more than a 16year old kid tearing down a dirt road. So I just thought I’d give Topaz Adjust a whirl for fun and kind of accidentally stumbled into “Toned Collection” and wouldn’t you know it, the first option, “Black Rose,” was actually exactly what I was looking for. So, thank you BW2 for crashing. I probably would have ended up with something not as good as this and not what I was looking for.
