Title: Wandering in late light
Post by: Patricia Sheley on November 20, 2012, 06:02:51 PM
...a few from recent wandering. (addend: need to back off sharpening I see...this little camera is great for walks, but I still have a lot to learn about it and the processing of its images...does nothing to reduce my pleasure in this late year light though :-)

The images are pretty good, particularly the first. But it is the quality of light which really stands out. Maybe it is me, but on my monitor the last image looks like it has a magenta cast.

Not sure what is happening...something in my conversion/sizing...yes I see it...looks like would be worth some time to sort...this is headed in a better direction, there's a winter's worth of learning on this and the others shot the same two days...

Love the second one!!

Me too! It's my favorite image of the set but the other images are very pleasing too!

The second is intriguing. After a glance at the thumbnail, I thought it was probably a tree, shot from beneath looking towards the sky (the context might have helped to mislead me). I enjoyed seeing the larger image appear and realising what it actually was.

Hi Patricia, it's good to see some photos of yours again. I fell head over heels in love with the first one, I can almost feel the rays of the sun and hear the rustling of leaves. Lovely composition, lovely light!

All good, I'll take #1 for my wall. Wish I was there.

I really like 1 & 2.  Beautiful light in 1.

Thank you for your notes. I am glad you were able to take some of the pleasure which I experienced having these locations "take me". It is a wonderful time of year at this latitude for the low rich light.

Lumine,
Patricia

I like them all, but the first one really captures my imagination.  I've used the expression "drawn in" in regards to photos before and it is this quality of being drawn in that really attracts me to certain photographs.  Number one draws me in.  I can see myself standing at your vantage point surveying this scene.  Well done.

I really like the light and the composition on the first image. What is the camera you mention Patricia?

The sweet little knob, almost invisible on tripod, is only small in dimension. It is a generous and encouraging to exploration fine little package. (One need only remember to carry many batteries if hiking all day into the twilight) Sigma DP1 Merrill. While it initially took some getting used to with somewhat gnarly old hands it is easily used in almosy complete darkness once one becomes accustomed to where to roll the fingers. Of the DP2 someone mentioned they had purchased several once falling in love...haven't tried that one myself though...Michael provided excellent reviews of both.
