Large Puddle on Sherer's Hill

I shot this around 10:00 a.m. on Friday when the skies started clearing from the heavy rain we'd just had. The light was beautiful on that hill.

Post-processing: Shot with the Canon 5D at 17mm, ISO 50, 1/160s at f/9. Adjusted white balance, multiple curves adjustments for saturation and contrast, color balancing, selective color saturation/desaturation.

Thanks for all the nice birthday wishes on the previous post. :)

Happy Monday!



C'est vraiment magnifique, la couleur, le reflet
l'impression d'étrangeté et un aspect rassurant en même temps.
J'apprends beaucoup en venant par ici.

When I saw this, my breath was completely taken away. I couldn't even speak. I was struck by the atmosphere of the shot, the colours, the perspective, and the execution of the photo.

I'm awed.

My impression of your portfolio is that you have captured in landscape what Diane Arbus captured in the human condition. By that I mean, there is no question as to the reality of the images, yet each contains a surrealistic element that demands the viewer to think. I suspect Ms. Arbus had an easier job of it, for at least her subjects would cooperate.

P.S. Keep that horizon line moving ...
