Garden Duty

Slipped over into my neighbor's yard to capture this picture; George has drawn water from this hand pump for many decades now. We occasionally chat about the latest birds we've seen in our yards or what flowers are blooming while he fills the watering can. He's a good neighbor.
A lovely still life moment captured perfectly. I like the processing, do you use a Lightroom preset and if so which one?

I can tell from this photo that George is a likeable fellow. Very classic.

I hope you gave George a copy of this image. It's beautiful. I love the idea of drawing water from a hand pump like this. Very special.

@nicolecampbell Thanks for the compliment. I did indeed use a LR preset on this — 2LilOwls "Celebration #3", with a little tweaking on highlights and detail.

@jackies365 Your description sums him up perfectly; he's definitely very likable!

@jamibann What a good idea to share a copy of this picture. He'd made me the neatest acorn-shaped wren nest a number of years back and when a wren family finally found and use it, I took a number of pictures of Mama Wren in the doorway and then shared the pics with George. He was really tickled to get the pics, so surely he'd enjoy this one as well.
