5th Day with 645Z

Handheld FA45-85 cropped to 25% of frame. Detail in the feathers is awesome.

Great light!!!

I'd keep the shoreline but I do wish it was head on so that there wasn't an angle to it, can you rotate the image anti clockwise slightly or just transform the foreground a bit? Great layering.

Hi Tom,

........... did a free transform in photoshop to stretch the sky, and then blended that layer with a simple mask to the original. It worked nicely and was just the nudge that photo needed. .....

Thanks to all who replied. The skewed shoreline is a problem, thanks for the transform suggestion; I hadn't thought of that.

Revised version, shoreline transformed and some vibrance.



This is another shot from the same evening. It lacks the remarkable horizon, but has a line of Canada Geese. Hardly visible at this size.

Forest Scene. Nice and spooky. Shot with a Zeiss Ikon Super Ikonta 531 (medium format folding camera).

Again, thanks to all who replied.

Love this image. I lean towards a slight crop, maybe cropping just above the light dark transition, or just below it. Seems like it would match the mood and the horizon. Is this for sale?
I sent you a pm; however, now that I've followed the excellent advice to straighten the shoreline, I realize that this image reminds me somewhat of Rhine II and so the price is around 4 million, depending on the size.

It instantly reminded me of Rhein II, the second I saw it. I love Rhein II.

I very much prefer the original, in all ways! The increased vibrance is really taking away from the subtlety of the original, imo.

Really like it. Should be displayed prominently and large in a Fine Art Museum or gallery somewhere.

Here's the photo I referenced earlier. Its interesting to me in that I've always tried to maintain sharpness throughout a photograph and would reject anything that fell short of that goal. With this photo, only the background - primarily the horizon is sharp. This is a 20 second exposure at f/11 with the Pentax 25mm at dusk. Small waves were coming in and tumbling the sand and pebbles back and forth and created a small rip current. The foreground is not sharp because of that movement, but I like it. Perhaps I'm growing as a photographer - or compromising as I get older? Anyway, its not a Rhine, but it is Superior.

Thank you Richard. I am familiar with some of your work and so your compliment is all the more meaningful.

I like it too and to me this has a mystical, almost religious aspect. I think it's growth; everything sharp is a technical achievement, not necessarily artistic.

Well at least it's not Erie.

On the big screen, the second image is mystical.

My first bit of shooting since before Christmas. the weather has either been evilly bad or too good with no clouds whatsoever.

As I was shooting as the tide was receding, I brought along some hard plastic plates to put my tripod on to stop the tripod sinking in the sand....quite effective

My favorite is the second image because I love the movement of the water, colors and composition. I feel like I'm there as the water swirls over the sand.

I went right back to the previous spot to shoot fireworks behind Coit Tower. Here's a pano with the 67 M*300/4 on the 645D. Better to click the pic for a better view.
