Winterlude!
Camera: K10D Photo Location: Ottawa, ON ISO: 100 
Posted By: attack11, 02-07-2010, 08:05 AM

Winterlude is an annual festival in Ottawa/Hull that a lot of people enjoy. There's ice sculpture contests, maple syrup on sticks rolled in snow, giant ice slides and fireworks! It's a week long event, so I'll probably be adding to this thread as time passes.

The fireworks were shot with my DA* 50-135, and the of the post was shot with my FA 50.

The next set will be a night series of the larger 2 person/team sculptures. I shot my nifty fifty at f2.0 with the occasional wide open f1.4. My fiance and I were the only ones shooting with primes, in a sea of giant zooms we definitely had an optical edge.

Wow - and interesting (and extensive series) - the night shots are very well done and the ice sculptures offer detail I never imaged that could come from ice as a medium.

Thanks for posting these.

I'll be checking back to see more pics. There isn't enough contrast in some of the ice pics. It should be good practice to use the internal refraction to help isolate the sculptures from their background.

Interesting crit., some of this is "inside" a big tent and i was shooting natural light. Plus onday 2 not a lot of ice has been melted for clarity like the smaller sculptures.

Very interesting stuff to a warm weather boy like me. I feel like I just leafed through a National Geographic article. Thanks for posting.
