Ice out at Bears Den
« on: February 24, 2018, 05:30:20 pm »

Two weeks ago this falls was locked up with ice. Today not so much and I even got nice light.

Comments welcome. Thanks for looking!

I was expecting Glasgow; that's where Bearsden is.

😃  Rob, are you from this side (east) of the pond?

Indeed you did.  Mother Nature rewards your perseverance.
Well worth the trip back. For you and us. :)

I often like long-exposure shots of water, but here I think you might have overdone it, and that a shorter exposure, retaining a bit more texture in the water, would look better.

Originally, but I've now lived longer in Spain than I have anywhere else.

The climate and food are probably better, but the buildings in my area are all designed as if we lived in a land of perpetual summer, which we most decidedly do not! It was -1C in Sa Pobla a day or two ago... Being on an island, the cold is coupled with sea dampness that never goes away.

Come spring and nobody remembers!

I like it! I usually go for a little more water detail (faster shutter) for my own work but I think this one works well and looks great as-is.

Shutter speeds for moving water is always a great topic for debate. This image is another of my beginners experiments with HDR. This is a 5 shot HDR merge, taken at a fixed aperture so it really has a 5 f-stop range of shutter speeds to play with. I was expecting to have to fight all sorts of ghosting issues but Affinity Photo handled it all quite cleanly with no need to clean anything up. I need to play with it a bit more to see how it is picking the shutter speed "target" from the set, to let me choose the effect more explicitly. But I'm encouraged by the results!
