Discussion in 'Landscape' started by Leslie Reid, Jun 26, 2019.

  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’ve photographed this fallen log in Redwood National Park’s Fern Canyon many times, but last month the light was particularly compelling. I suppose it’s not actually possible to photograph the same scene twice—which is all the excuse I need to keep revisiting my favorite sites.

  2. Taken at one of the entrances to the Devil's Punchbowl on the Oregon coast at low tide. I left Rick in the shot for scale.

  3. Once again I seem to have missed light. I remember the day more like ..
  4. not sure if hand of man is permissible. if not, delete

  5. "I suppose it’s not actually possible to photograph the same scene twice." Leslie, you must be studied in Greek philosophy, since this sentence is analogous to "One cannot step in the same river twice."
  6. "Hand of man" adds interest, IMHO.
  7. Fort Lauderdale beach

  8. This one has some dust on it (besides what's in the scene}. I shot this in 2004 with my then-new Canon 300D, my first "real" digital camera. I was never happy with the result. Then I stumbled on the shot again recently and decided to work it over, and here's the result. The shot is of Harcuvar Mountain in northwest Arizona, between Hope and Salome.

    My son and I were dtriving on county roads through Jo Davies County, northern Illinois. It's fun to stop and explore interesting scenes, especially in places you've never visited before. It helps to do it with someone also interested in photography, willing to oblige. This is in the "Drift Free" area, untouched in the last glaciation, with steep hills and eroded canyons. You can still see the weather a long way off. The prairies resume a few miles to the east, where you can see company coming three hours before they arrive. Ultimately the rain passed to the south, and the hot air balloon rally, our main objective, went as planned.
  11. This is not exactly the same photo taken again but it is the same church revisited. The location is within walking distance of home so I do have a few pictures taken in the area. Dunstall rural Staffordshire UK.

  13. Thunderhead, with Leica M262 and 135mm f3.4 APO Telyt-M.

  14. That's in the Nature forum, particularly the Monday in Nature threads.

    Here's the (final?) version of Irrigation from the Seeking Critique forum:
  15. Like everything about that image, from the snaking of the water to the truck and light coming from the upper right-hand edge to the field that transitions from the green in the foreground to golden at the bad of the scene.
    michaellinder and DavidTriplett like this.
  16. A day of incoming storm weather had me down at the marina for several hours. G filter was good, the 25A (red) a bit "inky". Fed-3 / N-61, G filter, UFX100, Pyrocat HDC & V800 scan. Enjoy, Bill 2k19-070-026 ces10 bc bm 4x6.jpg
