  • Yes, in a word. The first was a calm and serene view, the second more dynamic. When shooting I often pick a spot and then wait to see how the light and scene develops. You picked out two different ...
  • Created photo thread Two sunsets, Mull
    Two sunsets, same place 24hrs apart. Both times there were two otter pups playing on the shore 150' behind me, not that it has any bearing on the photos. ;-) And I couldn't resist the abandoned ...
  • I meant the water in the shadow of the rock, it's bright blue-blue/grey, not dark unsaturated blue:
  • Why? I applaud you for using the term "local contrast" but I'm not sure you understand it's full meaning which is the difference in contrast locally between different areas of the photo. If the ...
  • Not really a problem. Not really pastel colours either. Pastels are colours with white, bright and de-saturated. The main problem with this and others is the levels of clarity. Clarity pushes the ...
  • Ah, the ROT's beginning to set in on the forum again. ;-) Consider: Is a photograph composed simply because it follows a mathematical formula, and similarly do we see it as composed because it ...
  • I get the feeling that you're trying to compose by line. It's normal that we learn to draw and see by line first, but there isn't any linear perspective in landscape and so line can be fairly ...
  • The trouble is that we always have to create the illusion that we are in control and we understand. When we do this, think that we understand how all this photography works, we stop learning ...
  • And we're back to my initial comment, though mine was restricted to the image you asked about, where your actions seem to be the complete opposite of your words. With your other caustic comments: " ...
  • Sorry, when re-reading my last comment it probably didn't come across as I intended. Busy time around here, but the rush, panic and party is over for now. ;-) I have no problem with you creating ...
  • No, not in any way at all, complete nonsense. It will never happen with any photograph so all you have to do is understand that. I'm sorry you mis-understand what I'm trying to explain to you, and ...
  • You have to take a leap of faith here and forget trying to analyse the process in terms of how your camera captures the image and instead think only in terms of how the human eye views it. Perspect ...
  • What are you trying to achieve here? To me you've shot a 150 degree pano, which doesn't fit well into the frame. It's never going to look natural. So you've tried to make it look like a shot with ...
  • Yep. But the sides of a building do converge, just as railway lines do with distance. Yep, but don't confuse the curved surface with the brain's interpretation of the image. Yep. Yep, good old ...
  • Replied in That's odd!
    And I wouldn't disagree. Adams always understood that a 2D print with it's compressed range of tonality was itself an abstraction from the actual subject. It taught you to look at and understand ...
  • I don't think I'll ever invalidate your belief that it does. ;-) I think you've completely mis-read both of your images. How does linear perspective make the foreground POP exactly? To me it ...
  • Replied in That's odd!
    We're also looking at smaller images, not just on a computer monitor. Regardless of any aesthetic discussion, I do not think they resemble Adams' shots. But, I also note that in his 3 books, Adams ...
  • You could turn it around and I could say that I struggle to understand that you see that it does. Regardless of how illogical you think it is the fact remains that different people do see ...
  • Actually the combo of Linhof Technika IV, Schneider Super-Angulon 90mm f8, (older single coated), and 5"x4" FP4 plus is still a tough one to beat even with modern digital cameras.  ;-)
  • No more separation between contrast. Forget linear perspective, it doesn't work here. What we're looking at is modelling by shading. This is a very important part of creating volume, in effect it ...
