Discussion in 'Landscape' started by Leslie Reid, Nov 1, 2017.

  1. You are invited to upload one or more of your landscape photos and, if you’d like, to accompany your image with some commentary: challenges you faced in making the image? your intent for the image? settings? post-processing decisions? why you did what you did? the place and time? or an aspect you’d like feedback on? And please feel free to ask questions of others who have posted images or to join the discussion. If you don’t feel like using words, that’s OK too—unaccompanied images (or unaccompanied words, for that matter) are also very much welcomed. As for the technicalities, the usual forum guidelines apply: files < 1 MB; image size <1000 px maximum dimension.

    There’s currently about an hour between when the sun comes up and when the wind picks up on these coastal dunes; but conveniently, the shadows disappear at right about the same time as the wind arrives. The only post-processing I did on this one was to increase the contrast in several ways and to slightly increase the vibrance.

  2. Skimming rocks on the Merced River, Yosemite Valley

    The only issue here is whether a person belongs in a landscape photo. Some may prefer to leave people out and I respect that. It's their choice. I figure since I'm there with my camera, a kid is entitled to be enjoying the river his way . . . and pictured doing so.

  3. In my opinion, not only does the kid belong in the photo, but he's a really important contributor to the composition. And besides that, he's wearing the perfect color of t-shirt.

  6. I sat a couple of hours, hoping that a bald eagle would fish in front of me, but had no such luck; however, as the sun got low in the sky, the American white pelicans, sleeping on a stump looked better and better, so I took this image, aided by the last bit of fall colors:

    It's handheld at 274mm, with a 100-400mm zoom.

  9. 2k17-118-OK 004ces10.JPG A mountain ridge of 4200 feet, several miles to the right of this barn, creates a "2nd" sunrise. My Agfa Record was being "cranky", so grabbed the digi. Bill

  10. My goof. I posted this picture in last weeks thread. . . I should have put this one in. Down the road about 15miles & 30 minutes. Again, the high mountain is allowing a "2nd" sunrise to illuminate the subjects. The Fuji is a s9400. . just got it last week after the 8yo 4500 "died".
    Is trump tweet storming the site?? All I get is "error code this or that"... Later with the pic.
     
  11. And now,. . . The Pic! (I hope) 2k17-118-OK 028 ces3.JPG

    My wife and I were driving up to Rochester, NY, during a fairly intense, continuous, rain storm. Around Bradford, PA, the clouds broke momentarily and rays of sunlight lit up the view above. The light was changing so quickly that I left my Nikon in the back seat and grabbed this shot with my iphone 5s. I have made a large print of this and amazed at the detail, from foreground to far distance.
