Although I finally figured out how to darken the background in a photo I would much rather let Nature do the work for me. A walk through the forest carefully searching out for a thin band of sunlight illuminating something of interest, well that is the enjoyment in the hunt for me.
Sometimes though the sunlight just isn't there and you make-do with what you have.
I'll not go in to how many pictures I took during this little walkabout only to accept these two somewhat worthy of display. I guess the most important thing is learning from your mistakes and to go back out there again the next day, which is what I am probably doing right now as you read this post.
Have a great weekend and get out there and shoot 41 pictures or more. One or two of them are bound to come out halfway decent.
The odds are in your favor.
