Default Heading North From Knavra Bridge

One cold afternoon. HDR enthusiasts - make no efforts. It was dark as in a coal mine. There still are shadows and highlights, ya know, and the dark is spreading

Cropping proposals are very welcome though :-)

You have captured nicely, what otherwise wouldnt have turned out at all. Nice job Torgny. I cant imagine any other crop for this.

turbulent water captured nicely. nice foreground rock covered in snow. and my favorite, the subtle mist coming off the water as it diminishes in the background.

Bynx,

Hards80


Thanks. Cold, really cold; fingers still aching. Found this. Was more responsive to sharpening

Very nice Torgny. I personally like the first one, the cropping took away the source of light on the water and made the picture lesser, imo.

There is a sense of mystic in this picture that makes the picture very interesting and unique.

Alasdair,

Thanks. Sometimes -15 degrees Celcius kan feel like -50.

Another picture from yesterday, not unique in anyway, but I tend to like "ordinary pictures" whatever that is. True colour. Frost. (Snow fell yesterday night and continued to fall this monday)

Ah, yet another fine picture Torgny. The colour composition is really good. There is actionwith the running water, which in turn makes the picture alive and interesting to look at.

I see that this was taken with very high ISO so I expect that it was pretty dark when you shot this one.

The only thing missing, imo, is an object e.g. a stone, or an animal, etc.

Id like to see this as an HDR. By the way, any problems using your digital camera in the cold temperatures? There must be a limit when they will stop working.

I hope that you don't mind Torgny that I gave Bynx's idea about try? I've run i through DPHDR, so this is just a pseudo HDR.



Personally I think that the noise gets amplified when running it through the HDR process. So my conclusion is that if there is to much noise then HDR is not the answer.

Bynx,

Thanks for the proposal. I've been out in lower temperatures, especially with a Canon G6. No problems. Unfortunately it died, not by sickness but in combat, so perhaps we meet in Valhall

A selling argument for the funny little Canon D10 is that it works 10 meters under water surface, and down to -10 degrees Celsius. Seems the latter argument is somewhat "understated" (you say?)

Don't know really. But batteries don't last long
