Re: Norman and the perspective

Hi Norman,

It's always interesting how people perceive an image. I could be wrong, but I think you may be perceiving the frozen water as looking from one shore across to the other side. In reality I'm actually about 100 feet out in the river and looking directly downstream. The sunlit hills are on the east bank and the shaded hills are on the west with the river flowing through the pass between them in the far distance. The compression in space seeming to narrow the river is the effect of the 84° angle of view of the wide angle focal length. I think I'll add a little more detail to this by doing a "how the shot was captured" reply to my OP.

Thanks for looking,
