Lake Ontario Park
« on: July 06, 2009, 08:08:00 PM »

A couple of shots I took last night. A Couple under the moon; and one I tried as another impression. Sometimes I am just not in a mood for ordinary photos. These were all shot hand-held, about 400 ISO or higher, if I remember correctly.

I like the first one.  Very nice.

The second photo, I am not so sure what is going on with the ghosting/foggy thing (e.g., the left side of the tree trunk on the left is one of the areas I refer to).  But I like the composition with the geese in the water at the lower centre-right.

Also like #1....very much.

#2 looks like another one of your camera movement shots....I don't like it. I think it would have been a beautiful image with a still camera but really softened up (negative clarity, Gaussian blur maybe?).

The second shot is an in-camera double exposure. The "ghosting' is inherent to the process because the second image is out of register with the first. And sometimes this conveys an image that works and is ethereal in look; and sometimes it just doesn't look good at all, excessive ghosting, white areas etc. One has to experiment. If I can find one that I think conveys my meaning better, I will post it. They work best on stationary simple subjects using a tripod in register. But I find, some people just don't like these type of images. Thanks for the comments.

Yeah...I think the ghosting ruins it in this case.

Quite right, it can render scenes too ghostly, but it can also work, see the second example.

Yes, the second pair work big time...and I guess this is the look I was getting at in my OP. Very reminiscent of the effect Gaussian Blur gives.
