Second Chances

Back in September of 2007, I went to Oxbow Park in Byron, MN on a Photo Safari with Community Ed. If you go back to that set, I took a picture very similar to this one, but this time, the lighting was very much different. I've also changed how look through my lens.

Not sure I nailed it this time, but I do like second chances. Thoughts?

I like the new one better. We should all go on another Safari some time!

I like the second one better, but the first one is great too, just different.

I prefer the new one-- the light is gorgeous and the slight change in angle makes it seem more complete and interesting. Nice!

I think the second one is too cold. The discolouration on the front is great in the new one, but the edge of the wheel has a distinct blue tone to it.

These are great, Captain! I love rusty old metal things.

Do you adjust your white balance? Making the proper adjustments can cause/prevent the blue or orange cast that you can see in each of these photos.

When I shoot rusty machinery and such, I like to carry a spray bottle with me, as it can really make the colors deep and rich. But of course, you have to walk around with a spray bottle and (trust me) answer some weird questions.
