Security Detail

Two ducks keeping watch while the other sleeps. This photo was taken on the banks of the Waikato River in Hamilton. The duck on the right is just about to take off, hence the slight blur.

Sadly, all of the shots I took in Hamilton are almost useless as for some reason my D70 was stuck at 1600ISO which, for the type of shots I was taking makes them pretty messy, even though I shot them all in RAW. My foo is so lacking right now.

B&W, USM, Vignette, Duplicate layer set to 60% opacity on Overlay blend, Gaussian Blur, Levels.
