When the Night Comes


"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."
~ Andre Kertesz

Eric Cousineau from Sherwood Park, Canada

Wonderful lighting in this picture Mariana! The different textures of the water blend wonderfully with the scene. How long did it take you to get all the ducks up on one leg?? ;-))

24 Jun 2009 12:10pm

@Eric Cousineau: I did not have to wait for one-leg position at all. Tenths and tenths of them were standing like that :))

Marcie from United States

Extraordinary color and light. Love how you captured the geese in all of their different 'positions'.

An interesting peak at this wildlife community. I think they've made a wager on who can stand on one leg the longest. :-) Good shot here.

What beautiful hues of blues and greens you have captured in the water. Do you think it has anything to do with why the geese are all one-legged? ;-) Great composition!
