Red Rocker

(Nikon D700, 70-300mm at 300mm, ISO 500, Exposure 1/1000 sec @f/5.6)

My wife and I are taking a short vacation in northern lower Michigan. We just spent a couple of days on Mackinac Island, a place with no cars and limited internet. The island has a wonderful collection of Victorian ‘cottages’, some of which are larger that most people’s houses. I took this shot on a short walk I took one late afternoon. I noticed this red rocking chair on the porch and I liked how it looked against the primarily white and black background.

You may be wondering if this image was done with selective coloring. The answer is not really. I did reduce the saturation of some of the colors reflected in the window, but in reality the image didn’t have much color, as you can see below:
