Weekend Fog

23 posts in this topic

A few from my weekend fishing trip. Fog was really thick on Sunday morning, thank goodness for GPS with mapping capability! These shots were just before it got real thick.

#1 50D, ISO 100, f4.5, 1/400s, manual exposure, 17-40 lens.

Love the first one. The lake looks like glass. It is a very peaceful looking scene with the rowboat and dock.

Thanks guys very kind of you to comment. I am wondering on that first shot if a more vertical shot might be better? Any thoughts?

Dan, I like the vertical one better than the horizontal one. Flows nicely with the direction of the dock and the tree hanging in from above.

I'm not sure which one I'd go with. The first one looks much more spacious. Whichever, I love them both.

The only thing I noticed Dan is that the vertical one is about 2 degrees off of level or so. Ever since I started seeing that in some of my older photos I have been working to perfect it, and I know you are a perfectionist. Nothing a quick tweek in PS can't handle though. Did you take your left shoe off for that pic? wink

It could be a little trickery with the image though.

I like the first shot best. I like the space on the left and how it all flows into the sun.

All great shots Dan but I like the vertical a little bit more.

Hey no problem Tom and you are correct about being a perfectionist. I think your eyes might be fooled somewhat though. I looked at that myself and the fog bank on the distant shore appears to be throwing things off. The end of the dock is level which I know is also level with the lake.

Of course shooting sports the first thing I check for are horizontals and verticals. I always find it more accurate to use verticals to make sure everything is straight. This one really has no verticals to check for square so I was stuck with a fog bank and dock.

Sometimes I will change a shot even though its level because your eye tells you something is not right. In this case if I rotate it to make the shore look level your eye will go right to that dock and that will look tilted. So I guess its a toss up and in this one I decided to stay with the dock and let the fog do its thing, though that may be the wrong thing.

Thanks to all for the comments.

I kinda figured the dock was the basis for level, and after looking at it again I can see what you are saying. I just wish I could get out and find light like that some day. Nothing short of amazing, no matter what way you look at it.

Again thanks for pointing it out Tom, I sure has heck don't get it right all that often so its easy to miss things. I think it raises some good points as well on different aspects of a photo and what works and doesn't work.

Feel free to point something out anytime Tom or others reading as well, I'm a big dude who can handle C&C. Can't think of a better way to improve!

All very nice. I think I like the horizontal version of the first one better. Might have looked cool if you could get all those elements in a panoramic.

Very nice and peaceful shots, I think I would favor the vertical

crop myself.

    • Please God, make Keith Ellison the head of the DNC
    •   Doubtful we would have seen it by now. The bigger issue has always been possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian opps to influence the election - and who knew what and who ordered what. That's the big fish. You just have to be patient, all in due time Uncle Bill.
    •   I didn't waste a vote on him..   The garbage can had as much a chance of winning.   You owe the brave voters of Trump a great debt of gratitude for saving this country from hillary..   That's one big beer you owe the "trumpers"...   Bigly....  
    • Picked up some track at FF and put it on the floor and ramp. Also added a couple sections of e track on the wall to hang tie downs etc. Doesn't look like I'm going to get any use out of it this year but will be ready for next year. Plan on taking out track on floor in summer as it can get slippery and going to put in a couple wheel chocks for motorcycles.

      There's a blessing on your town
      On a lucky Monday, Mrs. Braintree
      All your lanes are waxen silver

      Mrs. Braintree, you're a chilly northern woman

    •     I think he's actually you and delcecchi's hero, judging by the number of times you guys bring him up....
    •   So did you get a guarantee when we started and lost the war on drugs or is this your version of a double standard? I am saying here is a reasonable solution with the positives outweighing the negatives. This is especially true when compared to the current model that has never worked.   Benefits to ending the war on drugs.
      1. Huge savings enforcement and prison $$$ that can be used on treatment. 1 Trillion spent so far with no results.
      2. Police can focus their man hours on violent and other criminals. 82% of drug arrests are for possession. 3. Creating jobs and collecting taxes on drug sales. Imagine that save tax $$ on enforcement and increase revenue, win win. 4. The legit business model puts most of the dealers, gangs and cartels out of business. The very fact that drugs are illegal makes them expensive because of the risk involved, taking the money out of the black market essentially puts these people out business and that is a good thing. Keeping drug illegal keeps the money flowing their way and nothing we can do other than legalization will stop this.

       
      Says the guy who wants to double down on 45 years of failed policy and poor judgment.
      What is even more mind blowing is that free market republicans want to continue failed big gov policies at a huge cost to the taxpayers. We already have legal drugs from big pharm killing people in record numbers to go along with alcohol and tobacco deaths so it is not like we are venturing into unknown territory here.
