Default Front Approaching #44

Had a cloud bank rolling in this evening, so I went out in hopes of catching it.

I like the light on the rocks and the water is very smooth. The sky on the other hand seems to be moving to fast for the rest of the scene...

hi ancient, thanks for your comments.

that was actually what was so interesting about this evening. it was dead clear and calm all day long, then just ahead of dusk, this cloud bank comes rolling in, and doing it pretty quickly too. so the 30 second exposure was able to capture movement of the frontline moving in.

Another nice shot Dustin, see it was worth doing some PP before the end of the day

I have an idea for you, how about starting a series taken from the same spot, same focal length/composition at different times to capture the changing moods of the lake, then with your new found video editing skills you could turn the photos into a slide show (and post the individual ones here).

That would be really interesting Dustin - maybe you could try that

mark,

i was actually throwing around some ideas in that same idea. i was going to set-up a spot, then photograph the camera on tripod so i could replicate it. and then shoot at each different season of the year. but i could also shoot at different times of day/weather as well.

thanks for the suggestions guys.

Dustin, this is a beautiful exposure! The crooked sign however keeps making me want to check the horizon for alignment (which it is)....

I realize, for some, the sign makes the image; for me, I think I would like it cloned out.

Once again, stunning exposure!!

Jehan,

Thank you for your comments. Its funny i kept rechecking the horizon too because of that same reason.

I was wondering when someone would mention the sign. I left it in, since it made the shot a little different, but I can definitely understand why some people may have preferred it cloned out.

I'm liking the sign....the blue tones add a rich feel to the photo. Now, for your next assignment, ...get as minimal as you can, in the middle of the night, under some phase of moon to give you the light you need for details and try for a 2 minute shot or shoot 90 images at 30 seconds each and stack them in cs3/4 for some great long star trails!! (but no moon for star trails)

i am not even sure what the sign is for, nor what the 44 means, but i kind of liked it too
