Day 103 - Pussy Willows

While Peg was on bus duty after school she noticed some pussy willows just outside the gate. When she came in she told me she had found a possible photo for the day. When we were ready to go home I took out the camera and snapped a few pictures. It was pretty tricky as the wind was blowing making it difficult to get a picture that wasn't blurry. Since it was Peg's idea I had her help me choose today's photo. The one above was her favourite because it revealed the softness of pussy willows. I played with it a bit in Lightroom and Photoshop and the result is above.

I love the way you lit this! The accent around the pussywillow is quite effective!

The halo effect really captures the essence of the shot - nicely done! ;)

It does look soft! I love pussy willows and actually just went on a pussy willow hunt today with the kiddies. We spotted some but they were pretty sparse. Maybe we were a little early.
