Driving the back roads of Rockbridge Country Monday afternoon after school, I spied these ducks in a beautiful privately owned pond. As always, I has hesitant to get up in the face of the ducks, so I had to shoot with my telephoto from across the road.
I have always loved pen and ink drawings, so today I tried to process my pictures using textures and grandient maps to get a black and white which looked similar to an actual drawing. This is what I did. As you know, I am always experimenting.
“Always behave like a duck - keep calm and unruffled on the surface but paddle like the devil underneath.”
