Wednesday Landscapes, 20 December 2017

Discussion in 'Landscape' started by Leslie Reid, Dec 20, 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.

    I was upgrading a Lightroom catalog from an old Canon point & shoot camera—my first tentative steps into the digital camera world—and came across some images I’d forgotten about. This is a winter dawn in the hills above Walnut Creek, California; made while walking my dog, of course. It being a jpg, it didn’t allow for much editing. I very slightly lightened the grass on top of the near hill to pull it away from the background, and I very slightly darkened the center bottom clump of grass to reduce its distractive power.

  2. Continuing the tree theme, here's one of three bicyclists riding through Central Park at dusk, taken from in front of the Guggenheim Museum on 5th Avenue.

  10. I've probably used this one in other threads, but I love the tree theme. This is the very first photo I took with a 4x5 camera. It was a park in Santa Barbara, 1972. I had a used 10 inch Caltar lens and a new Gitzo tripod (which is still the only tripod I use today). I was there for the Books Institute of Photography, where I took a couple of classes, then dropped out. Taking classes on "glassware" and "school portraits" just didn't interest me at the time at age 22. 16x20 chaotic forest.jpg

  12. Sally, that's got to be one of the most perfectly placed set of ripples I've seen--beautiful!
