'Mother Goose'

Post by davechinn »

This is another image taken at the Old Mill while in North Little Rock.

The squawking goose was waddling aggressively toward my wife until she backed away. That's when I lowered myself to capture the event. I wish I had gotten lower for the shot but now days have to be a little cautious of the getting back up process, so this is all I have for the goose that eventually wandered back to her nest?

A change in style of processing to see how it is received, so comments are welcomed with anything concerning this image. I couldn't decide on color or B&W, so here is both.

It is mysterious, and wonderful. Mother Goose is out for an adventure, or a day at market, or just celebrating having chased Sharon from her pastoral scene. By far I like the black and white. It plays on the mystery and fantasy component. I love it.

I could also imagine this in pale bright pastels similar to children's nursery rhyme book illustrations from the early 1900s would be like.

minniev makes interesting points...as you know I am a b/w fan most of the time..I prefer the color here as the b/w doesn't seem to hold the crispness and detail of the color...not sure about what processing changes have been attempted here, it has a Chinn feel to me.

Thanks Minnie !!! Good idea with the bright pastels. May give it a try, but I'm sure your abilities would look ever so much better. I'm still torn between the two, color vs b&w. Of course for different reasons.

Thanks Frank !!! I'm with you, I prefer B&W in most cases, but there are times, like this, that makes it so difficult to choose one over the other. I suppose it all depends on where the image will be used. I am surprised that you never mentioned a different crop, This was Sharon's suggestion concerning a crop but in color, of course.
