Day 13

What if I can't decide which photo to put up for day 13? I liked them both, and everyone (in my family) I asked, was divided. So, here I am posting 2! Is that even allowed? Will beat 365 come and give me a ticket? Oh well. I'm doing it! I've tried to be so good.. it's not working. At least (for now..never say never) I am taking each photo on the day it is supposed to be done. Those are the rules, right?

I froze at the park today, but only for a few minutes. There were so many cool things up for grabs.. here are a couple, then I can't decide between the last two.

Hey, if I'm not "following" you and your blog, please post your site address in a comment so I can find you. Sometimes when I click on the name/photo of someone who commented, I don't see their site, only those they are following or sometimes nothing. Thanks! And, I SO appreciate the support from all of you. You're the best!

 Just for fun
ISO 200, ss 1/150, f/5.6, 300 mm, no flash
added a little color pop

 Can't decide Day 13?
ISO 200, ss 1/100, f/4.5, 75 mm, no flash
I used the saturate sponge to bring out a little more color.

I darkened up the trees and creek bed with the burn tool.

I looove the duck! #2 made me think of a floral arrangement. Very cool. And the perspective of the creek pic is great!

Wow! I couldn't choose either. They are all great!

And are the 365 rules that strict? If so, I'm in big trouble! I think we can post ahead a few days if we need to, which means we can't possibly take a new picture to post each and every day.

Hard to choose, but I think the second one is my pick.

Michelle said...

It would be hard to choose, but my favorite is the last one. I like that it's a vertical shot and the creek is right down the middle. Very nice!

Beautiful set!

You don't have to choose. At least for our project, you can pre post pictures. We want you shooting every day but we understand if you get busy and post ahead.

Love them all, but I think #2 is my fav.

I don't know if you are following me or not... I use google reader and I'm a wordpress girl, so don't have the follow button on our blogs.

WOW...they are all stunning! Such great color and sharpness to them. I love the duck and creek the best!!

Beautiful! They're all so wonderful; personally I love the middle on the best. :)

Melissa said...

I love them all, no wonder you couldn't decide. There's something about winter that makes pictures look so peaceful. I want our snow back! haha

Carrie said...

These are so beautiful!. The color of the duck definitely pops. I'm glad you posted them all to share.

Marcie said...

I wouldn't have been able to choose either! I am glad you posted them all! The more to look at the better! They are all gorgeous!

Katherine said...

I'm a duck girl. . .but I can see why it was hard to choose!

Anita said...

All three are amazing, I understand why you had a hard time choosing.

Kara said...

Thank you! They were such different shots. I hate that I am doing just one. I should train myself to do just one, but maybe an "official" one and post some honorable mentions. :)

Oh, I wouldn't have been able to decide either, but I must say #2 jumped out and grabbed me, I love it. Love the duck and the stream also.
