Default The Magic of Water

Went back out tonite since we had a little texture in the sky and studied a different rock wave break. We had some choppier water which lended itself to a little more dramatic water. (50D and Tokina 12-24)

#1 "Frothy Water at Dusk"



#2 "Painterly Smooth"


#3 "A Touch of Contrast in Mono"


(C&C always welcome with my stuff)

Hards,

I really like the black and white one and the 1st one.

The 2nd one has great color, and the angle work well with the landscape format. The way the rocks leads the eye along to different aspect of the shot as you move left to right. This one is my favorite.

I'm liking #2 very much. Great job of using a long exposure to gain the effect you were after.

Thank you Shoturtle. I really like how #2 turned out as well, it really gave the smooth water effect i was after. the clouds added interest, but also made it difficult to get enough detail on the rocks for my exposures that were 20-30 seconds. its a delicate balance on these shots.

thank you WalterC, the bit shorter exposure on these showed off a little more texture from the rough water, especially in this b&w

Thank you Spy. As I mentioned, i really like how this one turned out with the 20s exposure. i am really enjoying shooting these long exposure water shots. and since its only about 10 minutes from my house, i can easily get there after work in time.

Alright the evidence is in. One must move away from St. Louis to become more creative. It must be the pollution or acid rain that is holding me back.

I'm the only one who nit picked one of your photos. Your response was I'm waiting for the right conditions. Stay tuned. Now it is payback time and by the way the crow was awful. Well, all I can say my friend is that you have some great photographs. Into the Blue, Frothy water at dusk, and Painterly smooth are among the best photos I have ever seen of lake Erie. This was accomplished within a weeks time. One can only imagine (and I can imagine big time) what you will be able to do within a year. Great series....

Sweet, and agree number 2 works really well. I was hoping you had left the horizon not straight or something so I could pull you up on that but nope all works really well.

How did you find shooting with the Canon after being out with the Oly?

Mark, thank you, i am also quite partial to #2. I found myself missing the LCD for shooting off the tripod, i got soaking wet kneeling down trying to see through the OVF on a low mounted tripod when a big wave crashed in.. lol.. that water was darn cold!

LOL, so I'm sure to warm yourself up you had to go and find somewhere nice for a beer and some food

Do you not use live view on the 50D.... it does have it doesn't it?
