Sleeping Ducks (Two Photographs)

To view more of my photography please click on

I came across these two ducks sleeping in the water. The scene was a bit surreal given the color and reflections. I recalled being told that ducks sleep with one eye open to be wary of predators. They seemed unperturbed by my presence. The color is a bit painterly and I wanted to see what would happen in B&W. Both versions have their merits. With photographs like this I find myself doing a lot of adjustments to contrast. There is always the danger of a flat photograph without contrast but too much muddles the photograph. In the end contrast adjustments were the hardest part of these photos.
