Re: Another part of Lanzarote

Like the first shot. Attractive sky and good composition. Is there a story to go with the pictures? The last hill in the first shot looks kind of symmetrical, so possibly man made? The 'material' in the second shot looks also like man made, ore sinterings or ... ? We had a lot of that type of material near Wawa when we lived there 40 years ago. They had an iron ore plant, some open pit mines, and a huge fume kill!

Nothing special

No, there is no special story behind those shots. I made them during my vacation on Canary Islands back in 2008.

The first picture shows a highway leading through Timanfaya nacional park, which is created only by vulcanoes. What you see on the picture looks simetrical, but it's a pure natural product - a volcano.

Here you can see a crater of one of them:

The second picture shows a small part of an eroded lava field from that volcanoes. Here is little bit larger area of lava field captured in this snapshot:

And here is the end of the field - the place where lava entered the Atlantic ocean:

All three pictures in this post were taken using E-410 and there was no special PP aplied to them. As I recall, they are just OOC JPGs...

MINI ESSAY: A Couple Shots from Yosemite Trip

My philosophy usually is just presenting what I see to my audience. It's very similar to Ansel Adams's philosophy. I pre-visualize, put my camera on a tripod, and then I shoot with a setup that will guarantee the sharpest photo possible. I often bracket a dozen shots just to be safe for the most important ones. I post-processed a little bit more this time around than my usual minimalistic approach, partly due to my tight schedule, so I couldn't slowly churn out photos like I usually do. Since Yosemite is a beautiful raw gem any where you look at it, you can't take bad photos here. However, I had the luck of having cloud in California July..., a surprising treat.

1. Close Up of Half Dome from Tunnel View 3

After the mandatory Tunnel View in the style of Ansel Adams, I decided to get a less standard, but more Louie approach with a telephoto. Usually I shoot my grand landscape photos in landscape orientation to exhibit the expansiveness of the land, such as Yosemite, but experience taught me always make a variation with portrait orientation for the most important scenes. This was taken with that thought in mind.

The composition was made with Half Dome should be the main star in consideration, and the V-shape of the valley will contour it. El Capitan and Bridalveil Fall are conspicuously absent from the view. I must confess, the lighting was absolutely in favor of El Capitan given the direction of the sun. However, after some tweaking in Lightroom, this photo I was about to give up holds up pretty well, as it captures the awe-striking essence that makes Yosemite so worthy of repeated visits.

Cropped to 8x10. F/6.3 is the sharpest aperture for E-620/Zuiko 50-200mm SWD combination. Possibly used a polarizer filter. ISO 200. Tripod with mirror lock-up and remote shutter release. RAW developed with Olympus Viewer, and ported back to Lightroom for post-processing work. PPed to resemble Kodachrome (and is based on x=Kodachrome preset, which you can find over the Internet as free plug-in for Lightroom).

2. Half Dome from Washburn Point 2b

In this profile view, Half Dome is looking forward to Tenaya Canyon. The vantage point is Washburn Point, a mid way to Glacier Point. By the time I arrived here, the cloud thickened to a gloomy overcast, giving the diffused ambient light.

I rented Zuiko 14-35mm SWD for this important Yosemite trip, along with a Heliopan polarizer to fit in front of that lens. This shot was taken with that set up. The SHG lens is very capable at rendering everything in edge-to-edge sharpness. For a scene like this, it serves the job right. As an added bonus, anyone who is not a professional (or a perceived professional) will move out of the way when they see the impressively sized lens, giving you the vantage point you are eyeballing.

For the proper depth of field, I put the focus on the pine trees, if my memory is correct. Tripod job with mirror lock-up and remote shutter release. f/5 to maximize this lens's optimal sharpness range and desired depth of field. Converted to B&W. A color version was also made.

Hope you guys enjoy these photos. I don't think I can move to m4/3 just yet.... It's the lenses!

Re: The blue hour

Yes, I see the eyes after expanding the photo. Looks like a happy ghost. Nice blue hour shots. I think the silhouettes of all those metal cranes are my favorite parts. Sort of suggesting it's a very busy place.

Storm Damage

This is one of the images I took during the wild monsoon storm we had a week ago. Look at the name of the church in the background. Kinda funny considering the weather at the time.
