Wednesday Landscapes, 11 July 2018

Discussion in 'Landscape' started by Leslie Reid, Jul 11, 2018.

  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.

    I’d been going through my files to see what I’d posted before and realized that Wednesday Landscapes has now been active for 15 months, and that gives me a good excuse to thank you all for your participation. I’m inspired every week by the terrific photos that regularly show up here, and you’ve provoked me to try new things and to think differently about how I approach landscape photography. You’ve also given me standards to strive for, making me enjoy photography even more than I did when we started this adventure together. Thanks, all of you! And I’m hoping you’re having as much fun with this as I am.

    I’d mentioned in my post a few days ago that the B&Ws posted in last week’s thread were inspiring me to dive back into B&W, and I did. But rather than working on new conversions, I dipped back into my archive of scanned photos from when B&W was pretty much all I did. Unfortunately, that was also before I found a good way to store negatives, so there’s a heroic amount of dust-spot-healing on this image (listening to up-tempo Bach helps). The Sierra Nevada’s Mt. Ritter is on the left, Mt. Banner on the right, and Garnet Lake is in the foreground. The graininess is from the Tri-X film, and it didn’t help that the camera was an Olympus pen-FT half-frame, which was the perfect backpacking camera.

  2. Leslie, even though it's an oldie, the image is still a goodie. The rugged qualities of the Sierra high country come across loud and clear. It has a Frank Hurley feel to it.

    No black and white for me, but rather the subdued hues from a morning on the Ma-le'l Dunes in Humboldt County, CA. We had been out to the area the prior evening and were driven into the interior by wind. In the morning we returned to calm overcast conditions. The dunes were in bloom with flowers everywhere in all colors. We had the place pretty much to ourselves. Ma-le'l Dunes 1500.jpg
  3. I love film but this image is from my Canon IXUS 960 IS digital. The scene is in Mid-Western New South Wales Australia. A very foggy morning with only a little of the mist remaining at the time of taking this shot

  9. Starting with the image you, Leslie, I feel somewhat humbled. I am awed by all the other posted, as well. I shot this in the NE area of Georgia, along Waters Creek. The closest municipality is Cleveland. 18277218-orig.jpg
  10. Unlike you Leslie, I never had the sense to use a 35 or MF camera when hiking the Sierra Range in the 70's. . . only my 4x5 would do ! In my dotage, I am very glad I did. Aloha from the Mainland, Bill 2k17-4x5-514-003 r9.0k s13 ce bc x.jpg
