Calm River
Posted By: daacon, 09-04-2008, 08:13 AM

This was taken with the DA* 16-50. For all the abuse this lens gets (and justifiable when you spend that much coin on a dud), I have been very happy with mine (I tested two in the shop and picked the second one). Just eyeball test with my computer (so I could see the full size)

I like a lot of things about this shot. The calmess of the river, the reflections , the clouds. It's a little dark but I think that adds to it.

Beautiful shot Dave, it's that that often you see the river that calm. Love the mood and reflections in this.

Very nice Dave. There are a few very dark areas, but I wouldn't lighten up the whole image. Maybe just selectively lighten the black areas to see if you can bring out some detail there. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. If it doesn't you still have a beautiful image here.
Thanks Laree - I will play with PS see what I can do or not ha ha (as I do like it as is - but also need the PS pratice)
