Water Color

Got to the lake mid afternoon today and lighting was harsh. I was thinking of shooting a time lapse but could not find a suitable spot to do so until I ran across this scene. By the time I started the shutter the light had started to fade, this was about 8pm. So I decided to just shoot a couple stills.

The reflection here really caught my eye but the shore line of the lake was not working to my advantage. I walked up and down rotated the camera and then finally settled on this composition and location.

Shot using a circular polarizer and Lee 2 stop hard GND filter. I ended up underexposing the raw file and needed to bring it back up in post.

Sunset in the East

It has been a while since I have got to pull out my camera and I thought tonight was going to be the same. Near sunset I went out side and seen the sky clearing in the West, I figured it would be a bust, but I decided to go out and look anyway. When I stepped out side and looked to the East, the sky was lighting up pretty good.

It feels good to get a photo.

on another note, I still have yet to put to use my lee hard edge GND filters or my singh-ray reverse 3 stop. This is starting to bum me out, but perhaps the weather will start to behave and my work schedule will allow me to do more shooting and perhaps use my filters.

Experimental HDR

Been a little bit since I got out and got some photos so I decided to share a bit of an HDR experiment. Mostly because I was bored and I wanted to see if the software would be worth buying since I already have a handful of GND filters. The idea was to get rid of the blown highlights, a GND would not have done much good in this example, and I still blew out some highlights during the HDR conversion.

Your thoughts are welcome
