This was totally a warmup shot that I took before shooting other images. I always like to get out and shoot some random items to get me into holding a camera again and looking around to see what there is to see before I go off and shoot what I think I am there for.
So when I saw this sculpture in the park near the farmers market my Mom was shopping at (I wandered off for pictures) I figured why not grab a capture real quick. I had my 24mm lens on the camera and fired off the shot. Once I dumped the images into Lightroom I saw this and was like it’s pretty freaking cool! You got the primary colors at work in with the red, green, blue and yellow and they are just contrasting with each other nicely.
One of the questions I have been asked is what are you doing to the skies. In Fort Myers the skies are this blue. I color correct somewhat and then add a polarizing filter but thats the real sky. When you mix in late morning/early afternoon Sun its bright and hotter than the surface of our sun. So thats why the skies are that vivid.
PS – Changed up the font in the watermark since I’m doing it manually for the time being. Kinda like it.
