Duck Pond by Davenit Duck Pond by Davenit
I'm always accused of never shooting anything happy, well in the continuing saga of the ducks I give you.....


The Duck Pond.

Enjoy.

wow! its a duck! I mean... I dont know what I mean. it has a sort of dark and sinister feeling about it. green's not normally a dark feeling color but compared tot eh normal yellow its just different enough to be unsettling. and thats the cool part.

The duck really is cute. I rather like the water droplets and puddles on the ground. I applaud you for wanting to shoot something happy and light. I have to say it only partially worked here though. As another viewer mentioned, I think the ominous feeling comes from the dark color of the water in the glass. Unfortunately it's just a given that in our subconscious light colors are happy and dark colors are ..... well ... dark. Now making dark colors evoke feelings of happy innocence. That would be a challenge. But bravo for another beautiful image.

Lighting is, as always, spot on Dave. The light seems to surround the ducky with a halo of light that serves to draw the eye EVEN more to the main subject. Ironic how you place a happy invoking object, the rubber ducky, in a glass with the color that is dark and invokes ideals of a swamp - far from a happy bright shiny place (but I am sure an interesting and moody place for a photo shoot:-) ) But then this is, at least I feel, mixing the happy & bright with the moody & dark; a juxtaposition of opposites.

On a side note, I could not help but notice this in my Devwatch (yes, tis been sitting for a bit as I have been exhausting myself with photo shoots) after two long exhausting photoshoots for the Ducky II challenge at DPChallenge during the first week of August. Your experience with lighting your subjects is excellent - I just wish I did not have to fight so much for perfection.

I saw the results on that one. Nice images. Most of the images on DPC leave me cold though. A lot of the same stuff over and over wins and that's a shame. It doesn't really help develop the artistic side of photography but more the commercial photography side of it. Still and all though, some great images produced there for sure.

Thanks for the kind words my friend. I swear I was really trying to make this a happy image. :rofl:

Heh, you may have been really trying to make a happy image but your gift of invoking thought provoking imagery managed to peak through;-)

Agreed there are good images in the bunch. To a degree I will agree with you on "Nothing New Under the Sun". The DPC standard that happens the majority of the time did marginally effect my celebrity duck choice of going with Blue Duck Group as opposed to Ducktor Who for the challenge.

The lighting in this picture actually gave me a creepy, menacing feeling...like the water on the table was the blood of another green duck that one just killed. It's like, "I'm coming for you next."
