The Green Mile

Likely not a mile. In fact, about 50 meters tops but Green Mile sounds better than Green 50 Meters. Plus, it’s one of those images that I should not publish but I like it so I am.

I shot this at the National Zoo near the Panda area. The green is bamboo and the light and stuff was coming through and I thought it would look cool. I was using my 70-200 for the first time and hand holding it so the image didn’t come out exactly the way I anticipated but again, I liked it. Shooting the zoo was an adventure and I’ll get to editing cohesive sets of cute animals in the future.

Editing wise, I went HDR for this but toned it down by masking it in. The image is more about feel than photographic perfection. I just liked making the image what I envisioned versus what the camera captured. Sometimes it’s nice to play with reality and make it what you want.

Enjoy.

  1. I like the photo of the shaded walk through at the National Zoo. The green arbor is lovely. Haven’t been to that zoo for years. Our family would visit it at least once a year. It was a lovely day trip. I kept a copy. I enjoyed.
