12/23/2012 Weekly landscape show and tell
Dec 23, 2012

The gist of the weekly topic is to share, learn and grow with help from like-minded shooters. BUT REMEMBER, you are amongst fellow photographers interested as much in how you got the shot and made the presentation as they are in the presentation itself. Be sure to provide a unique title.
How it works here:

To post your submission, return to the first message and hit REPLY. This gives each submission it's own thread within the topic (view the topic in Threaded View to understand).

We ask that that you embed your images (displayed within the message - instructions for doing this are here: http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/rules.asp?forum=1029 ) rather than provide a link. This should make it as convenient as possible for all to view and comment. Please provide the shooting information for each image in the message body where possible (Camera, lens, FL, aperture, shutter speed, ISO etc.).

Cityscapes, abstract landscapes, B&W are all suitable subjects here. Old images are also fine and do not need to be this week's shot nor does the image need to be shot with Canon.

Second is nice.

Good use of the lion and the decorations making what might have been a boring building shot very interesting.

This was taken 2 days ago.

The area received about 2 inches of fresh snow that lightened the scenery and the cloud cover allowed for excelent midmorning shooting.  There is not a lot of scenery this time of year but the Glade Creek Grist Mill offers some great shooting.

Both frames are excellent, but I like the composition of the second one a bit more.   Great work!

The framing on both is simply superb.  And as you said you had great light.

Great shot.  I normally don't like having people in my landscape shots.  But in this case including the people makes the shot.

The orange light on the hoodoos really makes them stand out.  Great shot.

i was at a family christmas dinner & saw this happening outside....immediately bailed from the table & grabbed my camera. power lines couldn't be avoided, so i made a little geometric square in the lower right of the composition out of the power pole & horizon line. just a wild, wild sunset. very minimal post-production. 1DmkIII + 50L.

Several years ago I was on a Sea Scout adventure and we had a similar sunset happening.  I was rushing to grab my camera out of my bag when one of our leaders stated: "What's the rush.  It will last for a long time."  But no, sunsets don't last long so moving fast is important to get it at it's grandest.  Your rush was well worth it.
