Two Kids in Action (1 of 2)


Lots of fun for children at the playground. Next post another activity.


TECH-INFO: I used the panning technique but with a pretty short shutter speed to freeze some action. Manual mode was not possible because the clouds and sun were fighting all time and none of them was winning. Aperture mode would be fine normally but the that would have changed the shutter speed too much, I needed some kind of combination of dropping the aperture and getting slower speeds.

After DxO Optics Pro conversion I darkened the background a bit and enhanced the colors with contrasts in Photoshop. Also cropping and some vignetting is added.
