Neodigital Art | Light on the lens
Looking for depth
I set the camera on landscape for this shot which gives a narrow aperture and some depth of field. The shot in is focus and there are a lot of interesting colours. I couldn’t get anything in the foreground though to give the shot depth. I have edited and made the photograph darker to get the colours right.
I think including the tree in this shot gives it a lot of depth. There isn’t quite so much variation of colour in this picture but the bright sunlight reflecting off the trees makes for an interesting picture. Note that the lighter colours reflect more light.
Light on the lens
This picture demonstrates the hazy look when there is light directly into the lens. You can see where the sun was from the shadows and it was to the right. It’s a nice shot spoiled by litter and graffiti. In fact money has been spent provided moorings and fancy canal side benches, a wide tow path and the bridges have been restored. It’s obviously not appreciated by some people.
The picture has been improved here with highlights and more contrast but we can still see a few ‘orbs’.
Away from the sun
I have taken this shot lots of times but every time it comes out differently. This shot is different because of the light and the wind giving the surface of the water a textured look. This picture needed minimal editing. The light reflects well off the lighter colours and contrasts with the foreground well. The trees in the foreground give the picture, lots of depth. The only thing I don’t like is the orange traffic cone that some moron has thrown in the water!
I tend to think the grass in this picture is too green but I looked carefully yesterday and it is very green. This is the River Tame and on old maps this is described as the Mill Race because there was a water mill a little farther down the river that powered a forge. The lake in the picture above has the river running along side it and so I was wondering if that acted as a mill pond in the 19th century providing a store of water for the mill. When we go out we learn about history, local geography, industrial heritage around the canals and even geology in places as we come across volcanic rock and even fossils.
