You've got some really great shots there. I am really intrigued by the first two. It took me awhile to realize that I was seeing reflections in the pictures, but how. It looks like you were out on a deck, shooting past the corner of a glassed in room but the orientation of the bridge seems to preclude that. The second thought is that you were inside, in the corner of a glass enclosed room. The reflections of lights in the room seems to support that theory, but the orientation of the bridge is still troubling.

So....How did you shoot the first two pictures?

Ill try to explain the best i can, im a lil confused myself. I was just outside the entrance under a large overhang. The outside of the building is glass, but inside the building about 3 feet or so is another wall/room that 3ft distance is what appears to be an isle way around the outside that room. I havent been in the building yet. The orange glowing reflection near top is coming from a window/display in the inner room. If you look real close you can see the isle insideon bottom left. The first red light on the left is on the bridge seen through corner and2 sections of glass. What really baffles me is the 1 small tree that glows orange on top, it almost looks like its inside but that doesnt make sense to me either. Next time i go back im gonna bring these pictures and take a better look when its lighter out.

Thanks alot for comments and viewing Cal

Thank you too Bob, It is nice being fairly close to the Mac looking forward to more shots in the future.

Best regards,

Mag

great shots, my particular favorite was the underneath one, i think it was #4.. with the fog obscuring its true vanishing point, it looks like it could go on forever..

Hi Mag,

Well done yet again! Great pix.

2,4, & 8 are ones that really do it for me. The under-the-bridge shot is very powerful -like a sculpture, and that water looksdeep frostedglass.

Very nice.

Caroline.

awesome stuff man!
fascinating play of reflections in the first one (it's confusing too..because you can see through the window a little bit!)

the one shot underneath is my favorite too!
you have an awesome spooky feel going, strengthened by the fog, neverending bridge, and the reflections on the soft water

awesome :-D

Thank you Caroline, Ive been having alot of fun experimenting with long shutterspeeds and water, i like the effect alot. #4 was 5 second shutterspeed @ f/8 needs to be fairly dark and a tripod is a must of course.

Best regards,

Mag

haha, i dunno you need metering tips these look perfectly exposed to me!

if i remember correctly, from photo books, you meter the fog, and open up a stop (add a stop of exposure)..

i think that's right i think snow is up to two stops..
