I love it because the guy looks rather tough and the dog isn't a poodle either. But the way you show them here is really touching.

There are some big fires in the vicinity that could have some influence on the colors... I like them! It is a good match with the colors of the seaside cliff.

Looks fine to me. Congratulations! To get it to the next level if you ever do this again you could record some sound and use it under the music. Especially when the lights in the tree light up I expect the crowd to react and if it is audible in the video it will reinforce the importance of the moment. (I did the same with a thunderstorm this summer. The moment you see the lightning you hear the rumble you expect to hear.)

Ha, sorry!:D I've started of with the same dislike for tripods but using them does open a complete new bag of tricks. You get used to lugging them around...

I use the same set up with the original K-3 for outdoor interviews but with a fluid head and a small ‘dead kitten’ around the microphone and I agree with your conclusions!

Thanks Maurits! (Dankjewel!)


Ed, thanks! The positioning in the two shots is slightly different. As the tide was going out I was able to venture out in the sea a little bit more. But yes, the difference is really big. The nice thing about long exposures is that you have only limited control of what the photo eventually will look like. Although with choosing when to stop exposing (in bulb) you can preserve some characteristics of the scene in front of you the dynamics of the sea and sky alway's inject a healthy dose of unpredictability in the end result.


Thanks Mike! As someone who admires your work I do appreciate you stopping by and commenting.

Thanks! Normally I am inclined to shoot landscapes in my own backyard almost exclusively with a ND filter but recently I've started challenging my self again by trying to shoot interesting land- and seascapes without ND-filters.

Michael, thanks! I am so lucky living near such a World Heritage site to work with...

Thanks Mike! Glad you like them.

Alex, thanks! It was a bit of a hassle to correctly position the tripod correctly with the tide flowing over the rocks to get this composition but I am quite happy with the end result in the second photo.

I usually use a interval between 3 and 6 seconds. I would try 4 seconds in this instance. I have never used the in camera function to create the video but do it on my computer. Dragging the shutter to create a more fluid video is also something I do when there is to much light (using a ND-filter) but in this instance that shouldn’t be a problem. The transition from daylight to evening and visa versa is a tough one. I have tried it but haven’t had any succes yet. This is where I look for answers: Timescapes - Digital Timelapse Discussion - Index page

Thanks! Behind me was a massive seawall which luckily isn't a decaying relic.:)


Thanks Jer! Glorious perhaps, hard labor for certain.;)

Thank you! The coast is littered with these kind of places but not all of them are easy accessible because of the mudflats being well...very, very muddy!


Thanks Janse!

Reconciling the Kenspo/Normhead Lens Discordance... rampant speculation...

That FAJ 18-35 is hard to beat for weight Norm... And weather sealing is a concern of mine too. It is one of the reasons I use Pentax and I still use my K-3 in adverse weather conditions a lot. But I bought the K-1 knowing what lenses were available and I have used it with the Samyang in light rain. I'll miss some shots if I am only having the K-1 with me because of the limitations of the Samyang but without that lens I wouldn't have had the K-1 at all...:D Anyway, for guy's like us that are more conscious about weight and dimensions out of need or necessity finding a compromise you can live with is the name of the game until Pentax makes good on its promises. And even then the solution they come up with has the potential of not catering to our crowd. But it is a risk I took willingly and we both have a solid APC system to bail us out. It isn't all that bad. I've had lots of fun with the K-1 on a solo hike with only two lenses. Yes, I've missed shots because of that but within those limitations I still can try to be creative and have more than enough fun!

Norm, it may not be wide enough but have you considered the Samyang 24mm? Yes, it is manual focus and perhaps a bit on the heavy side but I was able to use it with the K-1 for hiking instead of the K-3 with DA*16-50 I have used until now. Leaving the battery grip at home this combination is even a bit lighter. Especially for landscape shots autofocus isn't that necessary once you have the hyper-focal distance dialed in for your lens. It is my stop-gap lens until Pentax releases a new prime on the wide end of things.

There have been some attempts taming the sea, but that hasn't always worked out really wel. The leftovers are rather nice to use in a photo. But just before that on the mudflats there is lots to like too. I had to act quite fast because the tide was coming in. This sea is a World Heritage site.

Cheers,

Remco

Is that some sunlight hitting the top of the hill? Really cool and cold looking photo that almost made me make a run for a almost empty Glennmorangie bottle and finish it of. But as a journalist on standby duty...:(

Fierce looking creature. Nice catch! (Both you and the bird...) This spring I filmed a bird that lowered itself on what looked like a nest. But I couldn't make that out on the back screen of my K-3. Only when I started editing the material a few weeks ago I noticed the two small chicks on the big screen. The details we can catch with our camera's (and lenses) can be really surprising be it photo or video.
