As I ventured deep into the paddy fields of Sungai Burung, I stumbled upon a rather strange sight. A scarecrow has been localised and beside it was a crow that appeared more infatuated than scared. The Julie Andrews pose, the tattered flag and the trampled rice stalks made up the bizarre scene.
As you can see with the previous picture, the camera’s colours jump out at you in good light. But you don’t want that all the time. If you choose to use filters, use a colour theme to drive the narrative or to set the mood and not just for style alone. Here I opted for muted colours to match the shift in reality.
