Zeit mich mal zu revanchieren :D
___

I am a great fan of long exposure day shots, especially since I almost never had the opportunity to do one. This is a great, yet not outstanding (since almost all his galery is great) photo Pascal captured. The contrast of moving and static elements in the photo are beautiful and give it some dynamics; the composition with the stream flowing through the picture diagonally supports that.

The only thing I want to criticise is the reworking done. Although the colors are nicely saturated, yet true, the contrast seems too low. If I look at the picture, I seem to see a haze of grey hanging over it.

All in all a great photo which shows Pascal's comprehensive photography skills at its best and is a good contrast to most of the rest to his galery. Great job!

Here is the critique that you requested.

This shot has a very nice angle on it that creates a nice dynamic composition. I also find that the shutter speed you used on the camera (which I couldn't believe to tell you) creates a nice misty or frothy feel to the falls. The color saturation feels a little non-committal to me like you were in deciding between going near black and white for a nice subtle approach and going to a full and bold color saturation for a strong sense of contrast of color. Personally I think that the stronger saturation would be better. Speaking of contrast the piece on a whole feels a little washed out.

I hope that helps.

Kannst du mir mal ein paar Daten nennen ? Blende und Kamera würde mich interessieren. Super Bild =)

War damals noch one ND Filter. Ist Blende 25 und 30sec Belichtung. War aber tierisch unterbelichtet. Habs dann in PS arg aufgehellt und ein (wenn auch falsches) HDR draus gemacht, da ich dummerweise nur dunkle Bilder hatte. Ist mit meiner Nikon D80 gemacht.

Ach cool, den trick mit dem "falschen" hdr kenne ich auch, die Aktion habe ich
auch fest gespeichert in meinem PS, aber benutze es eigentlich nie. Würdest du sagen das
man das gut verwenden kann bei "unterbelichteten" Aufnahmen ?
Schade ich kenn mich mit der Nikon-Fraktion leider nicht so aus, aber ich google mal.
Ich weiss zur zeit nicht was ich machen soll... hab heute noch mal so einiges mit meinem tele
genknippst und gemerkt das die Bilder in der Cam scharf wirken, aber am PC dann total unscharf oder
relativ unscharf sind... liegt wahrscheinlich da ich ohne Bildstabilisator und Freihand arbeite, trotz
kurzer Belichtung ist einfach nix dran zu machen. :(

Kommt immer ein bisschen auf das Bild an finde ich...bei manchen Bildern schaut das ganz gut aus mit dem gefakten HDR, bei anderen sieht's nach garnix aus. Hier beim Wasserfall hats aber finde ich gut geklappt. Hatte damals noch nicht so viel Ahnung von Langzeitbelichtung. Mittlerweile hab ich einen ND Filter und mehr Erfahrung:)

Das ist ja scheiße, wenn die Bilder selbst bei kurzer Belichtung unscharf sind. Haste mal im Inet gesucht, ob jemand ein ähnliches Problem hatte?
Die D80 ist ja jetzt schon recht "alt". Der Nachfolger ist die D90. Mir fehlt momentan leider das Kleingeld für andere Objektive oder sonstiges Zubehör.

Hmm also ich vermute das es an dem fehlenden Bildstabilisator hängt.. ganz ehrlich
welches neuere Objektiv hat das nicht ??? Von daher muss ich mir mal dringend ein neues
anschaffen und schauen ob das Problem weiterhin besteht.

Vipallica Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2009
Hm...ich hab ja nur 2 Objektive ( :( ). Die haben beide auch keinen Stabi. Ist aber bei Teles vorallem sicherlich sehr praktisch.

Just wondering, did you use a ND filter?
Reply
:iconvipallica:
Vipallica Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2009
Yep, I did:)But it was already pretty dark when I took the picture, so it would have worked without one, too!

jetzt fehlt mir zwar das andere bild zum vergleich, aber ich glaube schon, dass dieses hier nach hinten deutlich weniger farbe verliert als der vorgänger. find ich gut so.

Mein Problem war einfach, dass das Bild viel zu unterbelichtet war. Habe dann mit meinen damaligen Kenntnisstand versucht, das Beste rauszuholen. Werde es vllt. einfach bei Gelegenheit nochmal neu bearbeiten;)
