Hello Everyone,



I've been lurking for a couple of weeks soaking up the knowledge on this board and enjoying the fine work of everyone. When I saw this weeks challenge I knew that I had to share a couple of my favorite pictures.


This is a reflection in Damfino Lake.

I wasn't sure how to post two pictures in one post so here is my second.

This is a late morning picture of Heart Lake in Washington.

Welcome, Harryed

Excellent photos!
I like the sky reflection in the first one and the silhouette in the second one.

A warm and hearty welcome, harryed! Sure hope you stick around awhile. :-)I agree with mactek all the way around. The sky in the first reflection is stellar and I love the stark tree-trunk silhouettes in the second. :-)

Welcome to the forums harryed.

I'm not trying to distract from the good photographs, but how comes the sky is over exposed but the reflection is perfect? I've never taken these kind of shots before so have no experience with them. Is that a normal occurrence, deliberately done with a trick or something else?

Ferny,



That's a good question. My answer is I don't know. I was about 7 miles into a 10 mile hike when I came across the lake. The reflection demanded that I take a photo. I just snapped off a frame with everything set on auto on my Olympus D-460. I don't think I even looked at the result on the LCD. I just kept heading down the trail. I didn't notice the sky was overexposed until I viewed it later on the computer. I have tried several things to darken the sky with no success. If I had known how blue the reflection would turn out I would have spent some time at the site experimenting with different settings or something. The image as posted is straight out of the camera except for resizing.

Nice examples here. I sympathize with your "shoot it now, be amazed later" situation. Happens to me all the time. I periodically do some intentionalbracketing but not nearly often enough. Might be something to consider.

Welcome, Harryed

I love the complexity you weaved by combining a silouette and a reflection in your second photo.

Whidbey is a great place to live too!

Hope you get a chance to sample Oly Natl Park from time to time
