A Fishy Tail

A Fishy Tail by Rebecca MacDonald

The beauty of this fish tail in the pond at Ghetty Villa in Southern California really caught my attention. Typical of my travel photography style, I tend to shoot the things that catch my eye rather than your traditional tourist images.
Taken on my newly acquired travel camera, Olympus OMD M5 Mkii with a fstop 5, ISO 120 and 1/250 shutter. It has had an amount of post processing to remove the pond background, to enhance its light, textures, colour and beauty.
For me there is so much more to this image, from the location and time it was created to those who shared that trip with me and the memories it evokes.
