2/10/2013 Weekly landscape show and tell
Feb 10, 2013

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.

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.

And one other thing. We are here to learn. So please if you post please respond to other's posts as well. What did we do right or how could an image be improved.

Looking forward to seeing this week's posts.

In reply to SeaScout851, Feb 10, 2013

Actually from three years ago.  But I've always liked this shot.

Taken with 40d & 15-85 hand held.

ISO: 800
Exposure: 1/200 sec
Aperture: 9.0
Focal Length: 15mm

Looking at the numbers it appears I was in Program mode when I took this shot.

i like this shot, it looks almost like an oil painting on my screen! i am wondering what a FF camera with high ISO capability such as 5DIII or 1Dx would have done just curious!

Thanks.  It was much darker than can be seen here, so it was hard to see.  I am pretty sure it is not oil, but rather the sand colorations may be due to errosion from the cliffs nearby that have an orange/brown tint - I am guessing from oxidized iron mineral in the sand & rocks?

The angle/framing of this shot is wonderful.  That combined with the colors makes it work really well.  Then you throw in the sun.  Wow!!!  Great capture.

Very nicely done.  But I would be tempted to crop it as a square removing the sea from the sides and only showing those wonderful posts.

Beautiful light and nice framing.  I particularly like the water in this one.

Got to love those mountains.  Great capture and you did not over saturate which is always tempting with shots like that.

Fog can be fun and challenging to photograph.  I really like the second.

Iceland waterfalls
In reply to SeaScout851, Feb 11, 2013

Thought having a person in photo would give a perspective of the height of the falls

Couldn't keep the lens dry in the all day rain.   Do rain covers really work?

Children's Waterfall - series of cascading pools

Lava Waterfalls

Did I go too wide here and lose the detail of watercoming through the frozen lava field?

Sorry- haven't figured out how to edit my posts yet, so just replied.

Same falls as before but fond a path to get closer.  Which of the two shots has better composition?

Southern coast near Vic

How could I have captured this scene better? Using a Sigma 10-20.
