Scavenger Hunt - 2

Here is my submission for item #13 - a fence:
This felt like a massive practice shot for everything I've been learning in Photo Style - framing the subject, capturing the light, playing with post-processing filters... and I'm in love with the very dappled bokeh behind my little fluffy-tailed subject.

But just in case you happen to think that is a photo of a squirrel, not a fence, here's another one to fit the bill:
This one was finished off with a RadLab action called "Sparta" and I love the way it warmed up the colors. It's a shame that more fences around here aren't as beautiful as this one!

And not on the Scavenger Hunt list, but included just because he was such a willing subject, this not-quite-timid-enough-for-his-own-good baby bunny:

Fabulous photos! I've read a lot of good things about the Rad Lab actions.

Those first two in particular are spectacular shots, but I am crazy in love with the second one. You could put a quote on it and make it into a poster or card, as well.

Love them all! gorgeous! Our bunnies aren't quite as cute as yours, and won't hang around for photos.

Love what you did with that second picture...and the squirrel and rabbit are just too cut!

I love the squirrel on the fence. The fence looks like it is just holding itself together and it makes me wonder if it will fall when he jumps! I love photos that make you think of a story.

They are all lovely artistic photos, great pics for the challenge. I need to go hunt out a fence! Hope I find one as lovely as yours.

Wow, you are doing a great job with your photo skills! I'm finally taking Mastering Manual Mode, starting this month, so hopefully I'll get better with my camera.

Oh, I think that top one more than qualifies ;). Your camerawork is lovely. So clear and sharp in the foreground.

Beautiful photos, Cheri! Love your four-legged subjects. :)
