Wednesday Landscapes, 18 July 2018

Discussion in 'Landscape' started by Leslie Reid, Jul 18, 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 had such a good time going through my photo archives last week that I decided to do it again. Here’s another monochrome, but not a B&W. It’s from a period when I was shooting primarily color negative film with a point-and-shoot—my gear had been stolen, digital had pretty much taken over, and I wasn’t ready to commit to the change. The challenge here was in the scanning. I still haven’t quite gotten the bugs worked out for scanning color negatives using Vuescan and a Plustek, but this one came pretty close to where I wanted it.

  2. This offering is from my completely tired and worn out Koni Omega Rapid, everything that could go wrong went wrong, underexposed, frame overlapping, rangefinder out of adjustment, you name it. Fortunately I can easily visit this lookout again and do the shoot all over again, probably with one of my Mamiya 6x9s

    The underexposure was my fault but somehow it gave the pic a more dramatic look which I'm not unhappy about Net scape 18:7:18.jpg

    Lake Conway I took it about a year ago. It,s one of my first landscapes.

  6. While Leslie was looking back I looked in a different direction...up. I have a wide angle skyscape this week to compliment the landscapes. It looked like we were under water as a seemingly monochromatic thunderstorm rolled over with an alarming belt of green flowing through the wave. One side of the brain said "get indoors NOW!" while the side with the camera said, "whoooaaaaaa, look at that!" The internal argument went on until lightening struck close by. OK, don't want to damage a lens.

  8. M4, Wide angle Tri-Elmar, Tri-X, D76. Coming down from Hahn's Peak near Steamboat Lake, trying to keep perspective of the mountains in the distance, while being at an angle on the mountain. The path was sloped, but I did the best I could to keep it relatively straight. Compromise, compromise.

  9. Another kind of landscape, bamboo re-growth after a fire.
