Mandarin Duck

Most of New York City knows about the Mandarin Duck in the Pond at Central Park.
It was either released or it is an escapee. It’s very photogenic.
Photographed on November 4, 2018.

Bubbled Lanscape

Photographed by the Conservatory Water where people sail toy boats in Central Park. I like how the bubbles captured the landscape.

Central Park 10/28/2018

Photographed with a Nikon D750 and a Sigma 120-600 mm F5-6.3 DG OS Contemporary lens at 600 mm. Processed in Lightroom, On1 PhotoRaw 2018, and Photoshop. I did not like the green in the original. I wanted only reds, I removed distracting elements, and added a texture.

The trashed version before processing in the “darkroom”.
