About Light's Destiny

I love photography and I love talking about it and learning about it even more. My pictures have been sitting in a virtual box forever. It is time to get them out and talk about them. I hope you like what you see and please comment if you have something to add.

Fountain – Heard Museum

Fountain at the Herd Museum

This is a fountain in the courtyard of the Heard Museum in Phoenix, AZ. I was at the museum for The 2011 World Hoop-dancing Finals. This shot was taken on Sunday afternoon near the end of the competition and a worker was hosing off the ground and cleaning up. The fountain was framed nicely by the archway. I wish I could go back with a ladder to shoot it again from just a little higher perspective.

In this photo I did some perspective correction. I removed a length of red rubber hose that was lying in the foreground and I removed some people that were wandering about in the background. I added a little sharpening to the trees to add some life to the limbs and leaves. A little burn in on the tables, chairs and middle-ground. Finished it with a very slight vignette around the edges.
