Portrait in Mop Water

Uploaded: October 05, 2004 12:43:32


f-5.6 @ 1/160sec, 70-300mm lens @ 300mm in macro mode, 8:48AM at work in Effingham, SC. Foggy morning and sun was just starting to burn off the fog. Mop water had just been poured out and the bubbles had some nice swirls and just couldn't resist a shot.

Cathy and Debra, thank you for your comments. I didn't have to do much post processing on this one. Just tweaked levels and adding small amount of un-sharp mask. I work for a rescue mission and a couple of residents were watching and asking questions and then wanted to look 'though the lens' at what I was seeing. Of course I obliged. Thanks again for the comments. #825615
