Taken at exactly the same time as my previous Loch Lomond shot, only a day later. Thanks to Paul for a quick tutorial on night shooting. Technically this wasn't a night shot, but still a 2 minute exposure.
f22 120s ISO 50 Lee 0.6 Hard Grad
Filters used to great effect.Love the blue tones in this.
Ed another stunner, I am loving seeing all the images that were taken. Gives me a whole new view of the area.
ps remember link it to thread !!!!
OK...here we go.
FG's seem to have been a problem for the Loch Lomond shots throughout. So we have a bit of scruffy rock and purplishly blue washy background.
Am I being too harsh?
Great pic and dramatic colours
How do you judge a 2 minute exposure?
For me the rock seems to be lit differently ( or processed differently more likely) to the rest of the scene.
Thanks for the comments.
This is pretty much as shot. It was fairly dark at the time so I took a couple of test shots at ISO 3200 f2.8. I then set the camera to ISO 50, f22 and multiplied the exposure by 10. It's not exact but good enough. I took spot readings of the sky and water and figured a 0.6 grad would balance the two elements out. I'll remember to bring my own rock next year.
Keith - still trying to figure out your last two comments . . . at least there's nothing ambiguous about this one.
like the strong blue colors, and the stillness in the shot..
Ed, I like the almost surreal light on this, quite dramatic. I have no idea what an FG is either.
The colour wins this for me
i like the tone!
Impressive shot with such a beautiful color and contrast. Love that floating rock on the foreground.
Like the colour, Ed, with the green on the rock contrasting with the blue. If it wasn't a "night" shot, then it must've been darned near it, with a 2 minute exposure!
Excellent shot.strong colours
have an RC my friend, richly deserved too. Wonderful image.
Fabulous colour in this one Edward.Cracking shot.
Stunning, deep blues here, Edward. I've got a similar effect through adjusting the white balance to fluorecent, but not to the same degree as this.
OK next thing on my list - grads! Stunner Ed!
Keith obviously looks at things with a far more tutoured eye and I respect his views enormously. But for me this works wonderfully. Love the colour and the simplicity.
Another cracking photo. It's often interesting to see what you get by visiting the same location more than once.
Like the composition on this, good stuff.
This is a great one. Sure it is a little blue, but it is the perfect time of day and it has excellent sharpness and feel.
