In the early light of dawn

Recommended Posts

Taken at Weymouth in August last year. I'm an inexperienced landscape photographer and I would like to know what others, who are more experienced, think of this. An unmodified, except for the removal of half a dozen navigation buoys, sooc jpeg taken with my then new X-H1, and the 16-55 f2.8 zoom.

I like it. the composition is good and the colours are pleasant. However, you definitely need to level the horizon. :)

Hi Dallas,

 

I posted the wrong image and it's taken me a little while to find the correct one, I must organise my photo filing system.

 

I've modified the colours in this one as well.

Maybe just a little off the top Christopher to get rid of that vapour trail. The ship is in a better position on this one.

Thanks Mike, you are quite right that will improve it quite a bit.

Third time lucky? I've changed the aspect ratio to 16:9 as well as losing the vapour trail.

The new one is definitely better.  With the original shot, I couldn’t decide whether it needed to be softer or sharper - it may just have been because of the size I was looking at, but it seemed to be stuck in the middle and would have been better either way.

To Chris and Mike,

 

Thank you for your helpful comments as I now have a far better image than the one I originally posted.

      So over a month ago I vowed to "post more" from my mountain trip....one fixed keyboard later and a new CPU, here I am. Enjoy.

      I came across this article on a feed and thought it was worth sharing. This young South African photographer has made an incredible image of the Milky Way above Cape Town, from atop Table Mountain. Read the article to see how he did it with... an Olympus EM-10 and kit lens!

      I will be sharing more of the stuff I find on this board, I encourage you all to do the same. Let's get the conversations going again on this slick new platform.
