Default Chair Lift : Crossing The Pillar

I had my cam with me while I was sitting on a Chair Lift.

I can't help looking upwards when the charlift crosses the pillar :



I don't know if the little DOF is a good thing or a bad thing in this shot.
Actually I should have called this post "Chairlift Bolts Detail While Crossing The Pillar", but it was such a long title

P.S. :
- perspective correction
- level correction
- selective brightness-contrast correction on the lowest part

I think you needed more depth of field in this one because all of it was part of the composition. Because of this, instead of appearing as a planned shallow depth of field, it ends up appearing blurry. And what the devil are you doing with a camera in your pocket while you're skiing?! Or weren't you skiing? Did you spend more time skiing or taking photos, freezing your toes off, then going to sit by a roaring fire in the ski lodge? This last activity is how I would have spent the entire time.

Yes, more dof would have helped this picture.

And look at that blue sky, wish we would get some .

Thank you Barbara and PeterB for a confirmation of my doubts.

Well, it takes about 5 minutes for that ChairLift to arrive to destination.

Plenty of time to take your cam and have some shots.

Would you resist from taking them while waiting to arrive to skiing ?

Well, I think selective saturation of cyan colors should work in Canada too

Ah what a great way down! The trail under the lift is my kind of trail. It reminds me of the trail under the Big Spruce lift at Stowe. You can create your own way down and no two runs will be the same.

JoshuaB , that's what in Italy is called a "fuori pista" (out of official slopes, at your risk and peril).

And you are certainly good at skiing if u can face it, for sure much better than me.

I think I'll have to create a post dedicated to you : a serie of slopes images.

Brtsergio, here is that shot of Main Street at Spruce Peak, Stowe, Vermont I was talking about. There are a couple dropoffs just like the one you see here, that make it feel like you're free-riding at a big mountain.



Plus there is no snowmaking on this part of the mountain, so it feels more natural.

I've been skiing since age 3, so it's something I take great pride in. I'm certainly not the best skier on the mountain, but I have confidence in myself, which is really what you want to have when skiing right?

I would love to see that series you're talking about! Thanks in advance.

Yes, the younger you are the easier for you is to learn ( since learning to skii implies unlearning all you have learnt about balance).

That's why I'm happy this 5 years old boy has started skiing too (and enjoying it very much as well ) :



NOTE : sky sticks are his father ones, who was taking a shot in the meanwhile

Big poles for a little guy nice pic.

I always figured it hurts less to learn when you are young because you don't have as far to fall
