At the risk of getting shot down in flames I am going to declare that I am pretty pleased with this picture.
For me it totally captures the beauty and elegance of Moreno, and the stunning nature of the view. Our apartment block is 4 floors tall and we are on the 4th floor with a stunning view. Each morning Moreno likes to watch the marina wake up from this vantage point, and there is nothing better than to sit and have a cup of tea and watch him enjoy his life.
From an artistic perspective I think the blurring in the background works well. In terms of my own photoshop skills and ‘eye’ for a picture, I reckon I am heading in the right direction.
Sometimes I just think it is important to take a picture that captures something uniquely personally. Each morning I feel really lucky to wake up to these two views – Moreno so content with his life, and the view of Almerimar which I never get fed up with seeing.
And now, over to you to burst my bubble!
Photographing Moreno is a challenge at the best of times. Not only is he active most of the time, but being black he is really hard to focus on correctly, as his coat picks up all kinds of reflections and shades.
I took about 5 or 6 pictures in order to get the one that I could work with.
