Alternative crops of this in the MODS section


When you're in Goredale Scar there's usually only one way to point the camera and that's at the waterfalls, but when the light bobbed thruogh the clouds, I quickly got this HDR at 15mm to get the lovely greens in the shot, before they disappered.

I've done 3 crops of this, this is the biggest and I like it cause of the water at the bottom, but think it may have the stone a little too central.... not sure, I think it works as it is, but will include 2 other crops in the mods to see what you, the jury, think.

Also...


comments on the HDR appreciated.... slowly getting to grips with it, less exposure than yesterdays by lowering the "white clip" and "luminocity" quite a bit.

Hi Ade
Another great shot from your Sunday trip to Gordale. The light looks amazing and I am now gutted that I called it a day at lunchtime!

I think you got it bang to right Ade, this is the crop for me. The composition is fine, the weight of the boulder is near centre maybe but it works. The colours around the gorge are very special indeed and the light brings out all sorts of detail right down into the FG water, which has just enough movement to make it look real.
A great shot my friend with fine light and the very special Ade McFade treatment.

All the very best
Dougie

The crop you've got here is the most successful for me Ade. Took me a while to figure out where this was exactly but now I know.

Has a somewhat surreal feel to it with the light on the distant slopes, almost like some scenes from the LOTR films. Works for me though.

Trust me to be awkward but although all the compositions work for me I like the first one in the mods best. I think the edge of the gorge is better on the one in the gallery though LOL Sandra

cheers for taking time for these detailed comments folks - for me it's either this or mod 1, so we're all pretty much agreed there Smile

think I may get this one blown up to a 20 by 30 inch print for the hell of it!

Rules are rules and as such are made to be broken, when and if you feel it's right. Yes this works. It is different, I doubt that many have caught this from a similar POV.

See, yuo CAN do HDR mate!

It's got plenty of impact and this crop is the best. Stone centrally placed is ideal, there's lots of detail in it - enough for it to be a focal point almost!

Sky looks better than when we were there the other week - clouds make it so much better than just plain bright blue!

Blow it up, it'll look good!

PS - is this on top of the falls?

Subtle differences Adrian but I like this the best. I think it is down to the balance between immediate foreground and the rock. It splits the layers into equal thirds making it easy on the eye. Nice image.

I'm just uploading an A3 version to photobox - it'll be in a public gallery if anyone wants a copy Smile

I've got 20 by 30 inch shots but never get them out as they are too hard to handle and no one ever has enough room to put them on their walls!

Got to say Ade
Its a cracker for me
The comp and the flow of water are just right and as paul says the colours are almost sureal and very enjoyable to view! At first i thought where is is? and then "bang" you realize where it is....
So far its the best from here and the Hdr has worked a treat..

How many exposures is this from

My longest comment this on Epz mate and i do not mind when the image is as good as this

cracker.....remember to take the E out of Gordale when you hang it in the gallery old boy.


the trick with HDR I've found is be clever with the adjustments - you are always better than default and the slider all the way to eleven.

Oops late again, a very well deserved HC Ade.

I like the sense of scale on this one with the trees and the lighting just arrived at the right time.

wow - a HDR with a HC!

cheers Pete

been in an all day meeting today so only jst spotted this Smile

ta for the coments everyone.

it's a shot with 5 of 7 exposures, each 2 stops apart. The really dark and really bright ones were not worth keeping.

the viewpoint was dictated by the sudden outbreak of sun! we'd been sat in the car with the windscreen wipers on for 10 minutes when we got there - just playing with the angle finder.

got some more HDR's to come... though goig traditional today :=)

I don't what this HDR is all about, but the wide-angle perspective it produces, is impressive. A bit like a fish-eye view, without the curved distortion.

Love the colours, and close-up smooth flow of the water over the rocks.
The glimpes of sky, perfectly creates a real sense of being there.

Grand take, for me this is the best view of the Scar, I tried this shot years ago but failed miserably because of the high contrast.
HDR looks sound and the comp feels very good to me.
I'm looking forward to trying this HDR now I've updated my OS.

What software you using BTW?
