Discussion in 'Landscape' started by Leslie Reid, May 2, 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 posed a challenge last week for anyone interested: how small of an area can you photograph and still make it look like a landscape? If you gave it a try, I’d love to see what you came up with—feel free to post the challenge photos in addition to whatever other landscape photos you want to post this week. If you didn’t, no worries; and if you still want to give it a try, there’s no time limit here.

    I decided to try for a tropical rainforest look, but it turned out to be hard to find something that looked verdant but didn’t have many clues for scale. I ended up settling on a moss-scape—the field of view here is about a foot and a half. It’s an image that wouldn’t be mistaken for a normal landscape, but I found that I was treating it very much like a regular landscape image both in the initial capture and in the post-processing.

  3. I was hoping to past this off as a miniature landscape, but in reality the scale is not fooling anyone.

  6. Leslie, I searched, and the image below is the closest to the image you posted. It captures the bottom right quadrant of a much larger one. fullsizeoutput_27f9.jpg

  9. The detail and texture is beyond amazing. I wish my medium format film camera could capture as much detail.

  10. Don't despair Jerry. Even MF cameras can yield excellent results. Good tripod is a key factor. A 16x16 print of this shot was sold to the energy company that owns most of the mills shown 2k15-033-012 cex bc.jpg . In this case, a Yashica 124, on a Husky IV, with Tmax 100 film in 510-Pyro.

  11. Also used during this outing was my Agfa Record III, a 6x9 folder from 1955. Same data. Bill 2k15-034-008 ce r10.5s3 x bc.jpg

  14. In Ireland, a region known as "The Burren" is composed of limestone, broken into rectangular blocks about a meter long, resembling paving stones. Here I used a wide lens (24 mm) to capture details in the foreground, with just enough background to establish a sense of place. The area was supposedly deforested by early Celt settlers in the Iron Age, and never recovered.
