Edwin & Joe

By BertC  
Captured last month during a photoshoot with my two elder brothers Joe & Edwin.

It was quite a dull and 'wet' day and I particularly was enticed by the contrast of the drenched soil against the puddle and cloudy sky. To the right third of the frame lies a hunter's hide. You will also note the lovely colour of the fertile soil in this area (outskirts of Mellieha).

Some enhancements applied to the sky in PS to add punch & drama to the scene.

Shot late in the afternoon.

Thank you for viewing and as always larger is better.

Exposure :- 1/20s - @F13; + ND Grad.
ISO 200 - Raw
