This is a photo I took during the 2009 World Wide Photowalk, and at the time I wasn’t terribly happy with the original. Between the time I took that shot and today, I have probably shot around 18,000 photographs, upgraded from a kit lens to much better gear, and moved from a Canon 40D to the 50D with an eye to eventually going full frame with at least a 5D.
I really wish I’d understood the power of raw when I was out last year! Even without a raw file to start from though, what I’ve learned about post-processing (like better cropping, the rule of thirds and so on) has made a big difference. What was an ok shot last year, is a lot better now that I’ve learned more.
Cute. Yellow. Fluffy. Yep, it’s spring time in Calgary!
