License: No Re-Use (What does this mean?)



At home, Ipswich
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

Evelyn being a bird in the freshly-cleaned bird bath. After we told her not to drink from it, she spent a lot of time splashing around in it instead.

The camera & lens:

Camera: iPhone 4
Exposure: 1/320" @ f/2.8, ISO 80

Post processing:

Instagram - I took the traditional route with this photo as well - taken on iPhone and processed in Instagram. I used the Brannan filter, which takes a desaturated look and accentuated green which suits the backyard environment and Evelyn's jacket. Big note: I upgraded to Instagram 2.0 (articles Gizmodo, Dpreview) which has some new filters, and most importantly outputs much higher resolution pictures. Hooray!

The wash-up:

I tried to get a different angle that didn't include the clothes line, but this earlier shot was more fun. Not too worried, it still works.
