A Bear Cub in a Tree

 

_DTR1078

 

I know you are thinking I must have made a mistake with this blog’s title.  I was recently editing my pictures from a tour of the Smoky Mountains this past spring and, after going through about 100 bear cub pictures, I came across this shot.  While shooting the bear I noticed the moon was out and this line of clouds went right across,  so I snapped a picture of the moon and went back to shooting the bear.

 

I have two points or perhaps suggestions to make.  First, don’t be afraid to put your subject in the middle of the frame.  Sometimes it works just fine.  Second, take the time to look around.  You might just be missing a better picture if you are only aware of what’s in front of you.

 

Sometimes it’s better in Black and White

 

Here is a slightly different take on the Palouse Barn from my prior post.  With the sweeping clouds above the barn, I think this one looks better in Black and White.  I had pretty much finished processing the color version when it occurred to me that it might look better in Black and White.
