Photographer's Note

Regendo a cascata
(directing the cascade)

First of all: thanx very much for your kind comments on my last pic. It was highly appreciated. A theme that some of you touched upon was my low posting speed. And now the speed has fallen again due to me travelling a lot lately. I shall try to pick up some extra posting speed again :-)

Displayed here is a detail of a much photographed element of the Parque das Nacoes in Lisboa: the big cascade. The kid is wearing a helmet. Lisbon parents seem to be very safety conscious – most kids engaged in skating, biking or other outdoor sports were wearing head protection.
I saw this kid running into the space behind the fountain and suddenly he stopped and started makin’ gestures as if directing the water. After a few seconds he was gone again. A park moment.

I added a pic of the cascade as a whole in a WS after the crit of Bertrand and changed the title after the one of Isabelle -i like a touch of Braz ;-)

I wish y’all a great weekend!

PCS3 tech: slightly cropped, altered the saturation, contrast, curves and levels for the whole pic and some elements separately, enhanced the edges, USM-ed, added a frame and resized and did a gentle USM again.
