River Mole Stepping Stones
Posted By: Nass, 08-30-2009, 06:00 AM

This morning's outing between jobs at home

Pretty enough, but it seems more about the green than about the light? So as a piece of work I prefer the b&w version:

I'll obviously want to kill the dead half branch and sign when I work on it properly...

technical summary: manual F22, nd8&nd4, fill in flash, 8 sec exposure manual, 28mm, iso 100, K-7

I found that you needed >= 8 seconds to get some nice smooth reflections in the water. The buggeration was balancing between the highlights on the steps and the lows on the treetrunk because regardless of how you exposed one of the two always lacked detail.

Hello Scott,

Thanks for your comment & complement - and I hear what you're saying - I decided that if I revisit this scene in a few weeks time, I might be able to get a few nice reds & oranges in there from the autumn weather
