The Duck Experiment (Three Photographs)

This photograph was one I set aside mostly because of the background. However I thought it might be good for an experiment. The first shot is Lightroom/Photoshop standard processing, cropping, exposure, sharpening, and levels. The second shot with the original changes was taken into Aurora HDR 2017 and minor adjustments were made to bring out color and detail. The third shot (again building on the basic edit) was converted to B&W, and essentially under exposed to get the effect you see here. Certainly the second shot improves on the first and the B&W stands alone. This was not in my view over-the-top processing; it’s a simple matter of bringing out from the file what was there all along.
