Discussion in 'Landscape' started by Leslie Reid, Aug 22, 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.

    So I’m still exploring that harsh mid-day light, though it’s been foggy and smoky enough this week that I’m having to do the exploration vicariously by re-editing some images in my archives. This one is from 1:30 in the afternoon, at a spring pond that drains into Upper Klamath Lake. As with last week’s image, it’s the harsh-light sparkles that caught my attention.

  2. And while I'm at it, I couldn’t resist playing with Dieter’s suggestion of converting my image from last week to B&W. I am intrigued by the result, but I ran into an interesting issue: at a gut level, the composition no longer quite worked when I converted it. Here’s my best guess about why: without the blue, the island no longer has any competition as the center of attention, and that made the composition seem heavy on the left. I ended up recropping to move the island to the right, and that seems to have helped. Thanks for the suggestion, Dieter!

  13. Here's a picture I took at a local wetlands area on a glittery, sunny day with the camera metering set to "don't blow the highlights." It looks good in b&w, as well, but I like the hint of color suggesting evening instead of just gray.

  14. Old Faithful. Scanned from Tmax-100 negative, taken with a Mamiya C33 and 55mm lens and probably using a yellow or orange filter. If I remember correctly, it was taken in mid-day with a cloud passing overhead, shading most areas surrounding the geyser. old faithful B&W s.jpg .
