Wednesday Landscapes, 13 December 2017

Discussion in 'Landscape' started by Leslie Reid, Dec 13, 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.

    Within an hour of when Glenn was walking his dog and making his beautiful photograph the moon last Wednesday (link), I was also walking my dog and photographing the moon. The major challenges with this image were finding a good composition in the sand ripples, persuading the moon to pose in the right place, persuading the dog not to pose in the same place, and timing the shot so the wave water had receded to the point that the water surface was smooth but there was still enough draining water to provide a clear reflection. And then there was the issue of depth of field. This was about 20 minutes before sunrise, so it was dark enough that I couldn’t get both the moon and the sand in focus without using an inordinately high ISO. I’ve been shooting a lot of macro recently, which involves a fair bit of focus-stacking, and that’s what I did here.

    Norman 202 i am the light

    it was a beautiful sunny, cloudless day where the sky met the sea so i took the first photo with an altered white balance.


    the second shot i converted to b& w

  3. Statue of Liberty from below the Brooklyn Heights Promenade . . .

  4. I am an early riser (0500) & "usually" go to the beach when in Hawaii to greet the sunrise. While concentrating on the sunrise in front of me, I only saw this when I turn around to leave the beach. Three frames & the bow vanished. Just a bit of darkening & contrast increase to get the colors. Aloha, Bill Fuji S-9400 @ 90mm 2k17-dp-2017-12-12-DSCF0245 ces2 11x14.JPG
  5. Here is another photo from an early morning dog walk, with the full moon setting about the same time as the sun rising. This is a single exposure photo, with selective dodging and burning, and sharpening of the moon's face. sunrise-moonset s.jpg
  6. I never get up early unless I have to work! All my landscape photos are typically afternoon/evening. Here's one of the moon, done before I went digital. 4x5 negative with an ancient 90mm Schneider angulon, uncoated. (I may have posted this one before at some time) 16x20 crosby with 90mm 4by5.jpg
