Nashua Park, BOston
Stumbled upon a family of ducks on a long walk in Boston. They were swimming along the shore of the charles river over by the Nashua Street Park. The sky was very cloudy, making the Charles appear silver in color which to me really made the subjects colors stand out with vibrancy. The mother kept a watchful eye on me as I snapped this photograph, and as soon as it was taken. They are city ducks but still keep their distance from people as best as they can.
This photo has been cropped to square, the contrast has been made more pronounced, the sharpness has been increased around subjects, and decreased along the water lines. The saturation has been increased.
