Re: Landscape 2015

Wow. Fantastic. Love the time lapse sequence. May I ask how you achieved it? The shot is (obviously) a composite, and one of the most difficult/involved post processing project I've ever undertaken. I set up two cameras (on tripods) to shoot at 10 min intervals. I had 1 with a wide lens (approx 17 ...

Re: Landscape 2015

I woke up at 2:50 AM to catch Saturday's Lunar Eclipse. I sat in the cold and dark for 3.5 hours watching the magic. Totally worth it (no pun intended). Here are the results... http://www.LANDSHAPEPHOTOGRAPHY.com/img/s10/v114/p1094654021-5.jpg http://www.LANDSHAPEPHOTOGRAPHY.com/img/s12/v170/p109375...

Re: Exhibit your B&W shots

Thanks Lonnie. Your explanation is a good lesson for me in terms of handling flat light versus good light. I never paid attention to what kind of light I have to work with, in the past, other than the Golden hour and I learned something valuable. With best regards, Sury If you haven't done so, I hi...

Re: Exhibit your B&W shots

Thanks for the kind words folks. As for the flat light comment, flat light provides a nice even light that compliments this type of shot. I guess what I was really trying to convey is that the lighting conditions influenced my decision to shoot a micro-landscape vs a grand landscape vista. Our camps...

Went on a family camping trip this weekend. I got out to shoot for just about an hour under flat light. While I came back with this shot... http://www.LANDSHAPEPHOTOGRAPHY.com/img/s6/v151/p598270999-4.jpg What I didn't come back with was the lens hood to my Zeiss 24-70mm f/2.8. Pricing them on the S...

It's wildflower season

Should hit it's peak later this week. My guesstimation is we're at about 80% right now.

Re: The Golden Arches

The one thing that this image has going for it is nice pleasing colors. The primary colors of this photograph, the greens, oranges and blues both compliment and contrast to each other nicely. Something else I really like about this image, is it shows a lot of depth, which is something I usually stri...

The Golden Arches

I have shot and returned to this location many times, as it's one of the better sunrise locations in Arches. I've never really been thrilled with any image I've gotten in this area of the park (at sunrise anyway). This photo was no different.  I wasn't thrilled about it when I shot it, nor when I pr...

I was there for another shot which didn't pan out the way I envisioned it. So, I didn't really plan on this one, nor stumble across it.

Re: The A900 still has it....

Sury, Usually, Reverse GND's are most useful with flat horizon lines like near water. They are used when shooting directly into the the light source, most frequently the sun, and the light source is almost at the horizon and the sky is still light enough that it won't blow out the image. As I'm sure...

Re: The A900 still has it....

One thing about Bryce that makes it "difficult" for my preferred style of shooting is often times the foreground elements leave something to be desired. They aren't very "clean". The "solution" to that "problem" is to switch to a little bit longer lens and lea...

Single exposure with a 3 stop reverse GND filter. Very little other processing was done. I texted a couple of my buddies a cell phone shot of the back of my camera. Here's that image....

The A900 still has it....

The family drug the Airstream to Bryce Canyon for the 4th, to escape the heat. Spent several days there. I'm still in awe of what turned out to be an epic sunrise one morning.... Hope ya'll enjoy. http://www.LANDSHAPEPHOTOGRAPHY.com/img/s6/v139/p867025309-5.jpg Focal Length 16 mm Shutter Speed 1 sec...
