Hope you like it.
C&C welcome, as always
thanks for looking
The subject matter is fine, but the light and colours are very bland. I think this one really needed a 2 stop graduated neutral density to make the clouds pop. As well, perhaps a touch more saturation in the grass/pump.
I agree with tirediron, the colours are washed out and strange in a way. Also it appears strangely un-sharp/hazy.
thanks guys. although I must admit that I don't know what '2 stop graduated neutral density' means. The haziness of the windmills was on purpose, they are supposed to be the 'new energy sources coming up', so I wanted them softer than the oilpump. But the colors were not supposed to be washed out or weird.
So I'll give it another try.
thanks again tirediron and Alex!
Gawd, I can be so dim.
"Change is in the air!"
Just now caught on with windmills, air, doh!
Graduated neutral density filters (G-ND) are filters which while optically clear, have the ability to block light. This blocking ability is graduated from a maximum at the top, to completely clear at the bottom, allowing you to effectively produce an image with a 1, 2, or more stop difference in exposure between the top and bottom.
You can see what they look like here: http://www.cokin.fr/ico3-p1-6.html
that's great! Pretty useful info there.
What an appropriate title!
I sure wish my landscape looked like that, all I see is oil, oil, oil.
This picture gives a sense of hope that change is in fact in the air.
Its different. I like the idea.
thanks, that's nice to hear
thank you. But I will have to give it another try, see if I can improve on the colors
pascal, where are you now on your journey?
Reminds me of 'where in the world is Carmen SanDiego?'
Oklahoma City it is...
