Re: March 2009 Photo Competition: Discussion

for my entry ---I should have paid closer attention to Fstop--I would have liked the whole dress and people in the reflection to be in focus--The whole photo seems a little soft to me but I am limited somewhat by inexpensive lenses (so far!). It was low light and pretty noisy.

Removed a few distractions on the wall behind bride-to-be and to the right side---also did noise reduction and slight sharpen filter--
And----no she's not married yet---I think she just likes to try on the dresses ;=}

Re: March 2009 Photo Competition: Discussion

I wish I could have got my picture sharper. It was taken on a perfectly still morning with dense freezing fog that had been lingering for a few days- I was fumbling about with thick gloves on and ended up deleting most attempts - blurry/out of focus (no tripod). I've been back a few times, and this swan is always there with its mate, but the water has never been as smooth as it was on that foggy morning. I still like this picture despite its faults though.

Wow Danny---that is spectacular---did you do any processing or is that out of the camera with no adjustments?

I agree, the scene in Danny's image is stunning. I would love to see a colour version if you have one Danny.

Janet - the water in your image is as smooth as a mirror and the reflections so sharp. If you look at the picture upside down it almost looks the right way up!

My Reflections was taken in my kitchen sink! A dinner plate standing up and the water slowly dripping. The images in the droplets are upside down.

Thanks Steve for the explanation, I was wondering how you did it.
What kind of lighting did you use and what lens?

Hi Cathy! I used a Nikon D300 w/ 105 2.8 macro, and had a SB 800 off the camera, sitting on the kitchen counter, at about 1/4 power.
