Wednesday Landscapes, 3 October 2018

Discussion in 'Landscape' started by Leslie Reid, Oct 3, 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.

    What attracted me here was the contrast between the purple and green seaweeds, set off against the blue sky reflection on the water. But what took the most effort was the issue that’s probably least noticeable here: the shape and size of the wave. It took 12 tries over a 5-minute period to finally catch a well-formed wave front in the right place, and moving slowly enough that motion blur wasn’t a problem.

    Last weekend was near the peak for fall colors in Teton Vally, Idaho. The Teton Mountain Range is in the background of this photograph.

    For a change, almost no editing was used for this photograph, no exposure adjustment or cropping, just a bit of tonal contrast increase in the sky. Not editing an image, or even using just a little editing, almost never happens, unless it is for documentation or a quick email attachment. I like to experiment and have a hard time leaving well enough alone.

  11. Not sure if this works but I couldn't resist the sun rays as I was moving through the bush and to see what the Canon 960 IS could make of them

  14. This is an out of the ordinary sort of image for me. This morning I was at a local lake playing with light, fog, and dewy spider webs. Fog obscures the forest behind the walkway and the linear quality with the muted colors made the scene interesting, to me at least.
