Same shot different lens

Posted By: Jimbo, 04-01-2010, 08:52 AM

Shot these two on the way home from Kelowna BC to Vancouver using both my Pentax 16-50 and my Sigma 70-200. I am leaning towards the first image. JIM

the portrait orientation of #2 conveys a greater sense of height or elevation to me, it's also very cold looking without the warm tones seen in #1.

both of them are good, it looks like that gorge (or whatever it's called) would be a fun hike.

Appreciate you looking and commenting. I often wonder what is around that first corner everytime I go by here. JIM

The wide angle shot projects a more 'mysterious' feel

The tele-shot is abit clearer if I pixle peep

Overall, I prefer the wide angle shot more

Between colour and B&W, I still prefer the colour shot

Just my own opinion

but the question I have for Jimbo is: why so much difference in color, ?

Is this a product of the different lenses, i.e. sigma = cold, Pentax = Warm, or a product of AWB, or a product of PP?

I think you are leaning the right way - love the first one.

Definately #1, there is much more depth and contrast.

They definately have a different "feel" to them, and while #2 tends to want to draw me in a little more, I'm more drawn to #1.
Beautiful scenery - as usual.....

The B&W version is fantastic! Very stunning scenery, and very good work on spotting the angle and image!

I believe its a bit of both Lowell. I find the Pentax 16-50 does give a different feel and contrast and I did pump the color up slightly on the wider shot. I have always liked the 70-200 Sigma for landscape shots. Sharp lens and it picks up a lot of detail. In this I also seen the light changing on each shot as the sun tried to come out. JIM

This shot, I believe, looks way better with the snow. I have shot hear before and it can be tough lighting. JIM

Hi Jim,
I really like the 2nd and 3rd shot. The PP gives a chillier feel to the image, a starkness that accentuates the cold nature of the place.
Either way - Portrait or landscape works.
Also there seems better clarity in those two images ?
Well shot.
Cheers Neil

Boy, do I like the first composition in B&W (i.e. the third image). Very impressive. The second shot, in my view, has too much space devoted to an empty snow field for a landscape but not enough space for a minimalist image. But then, what do I know? I had to look up how to spell "minimalist".*

Happy Easter, buddy.

Thank you Neil. I believe its the snow that makes the shot. JIM

Happy Easter to you and your family bud. Mama Bear just took the turkey out of the freezer for Sunday. I too like the B&W version though I may go back and play with the processing a bit.. JIM
