2019 365 Photographs: Photo 18

This is one of the shots you just decide to take because it is there.

I was sitting outside having a red wine, as I often did, and I spotted this Smith’s Barbecue chip bad on the lawn over by the limestone wall. The colours on the bag, the silver inside of the bag, with the limestone wall in the background catching the golden rays of the setting sun, and the green lawn at the front all caught my eye.

So I went inside and got my camera.

It was actually a harder picture to capture than I first expected. Mainly due to the harsh reflections from the shiny bag. I ended up calming down the reflections by putting on my polarising filter.

Using the polarising filter has also given additional depth to the colours.

This picture has actually done very well in a number of competitions on Gurushots.
