As the title suggests...
the light that is falling through the trees and reflecting in the water is magnificent. i wonder how it looks in color ...
Beautiful shot! very atmospheric
It's pretty much monochrome but I just thought it would work beter B&W.
I absolutely agree.
ooo... nice one, thats some good looking light! :thumbup:
Lovely. The reflected light is quite ethereal. One thing that particularly caught my eye is a heart shape in the trees.
The light is brilliant. It's a little hard to make out what's what in B&W though.
Saw the other post.
Ooo, I missed seeing this one until I noticed it in the PotM lineup. I know you hate this, but ... :hail:
(And that's the only time I'll be figuratively on my knees)
yeah i would like it more if what was going on was clearer in the black and white.
It was just a grab shot. Here is the whole view.
It was a fine balance - if I exposed to show what was going on then I lost the light patterns. I had to go for the optimum.
Personally, I kinda like the power lines but including them changes the whole focus of the image and, at the time, I was just interested in what the light was doing.
And I would say that it looks fine on my monitor - but then, I use a Mac and calibrate it with a Spyder
It's nice to see more of the scene that you came upon. The feeling is definitely different in the 2nd, but no less interesting light-wise.
It's really quite a striking sight, the downgoing and upgoing rays so clear, and intersecting, like that. Well spotted and well captured.
