Michiel: I do believe this is the first time I've noticed a person in any photos from your wonderful series of small towns.

I noticed that too . :shocked: Nice .

I think the guy in the photo illegaly trespassed Michiel's territory! But I think his entry completes the picture.

The first time I wanted to visit this place was back in 2017, but then more urgent / desirable / exotic places were coming up and I always thought 'for a weekend it's not worth the hazzle'. This weekend I finally did it and it was great to camp and hike.

No time for edits yet as I just returned, so this is OOC.

This time I first time wished for a more lightweight setup, since I lugged around my Hasselblad with 3 lenses and large format camera with 2 lenses, filters, light meter, etc. - summing up with water, rain gear, and food to 22kg which I carried 27km.

Rügen, Germany

I was in my office, it was close to sunset, and I hear a sudden thundershower. That means one thing - killer rainbow! If sunrises are the cat photos of landscape photography, then here we have a kitten playing with a baby:



Fuji GFX 100, Laowa 17mm f/4. Horribly over-processed. :angel:

Interestingly, this is no less dramatic, but not as garish!



And with the 100-200 zoom...



Just boosted contrast a million percent. That "takes care" of the saturation.

Matt

BTW, I just read up on why the sky is darker between the two rainbows and lighter below the primary. It seems water drops suffer from chromatic aberration (the rainbow), spherical aberration (the dark bit), and lack of a good coating (internal reflections). Really, you'd think whoever was responsible could make a better lens! Luckily for us, they did not. :ROTFL:

Ah, perfect imperfection.:)

Isn't it wonderful?:thumbup:

Matt, you just re-inspired me to embrace impermanence and imperfection once again. :grin:

Bit of fun here really.

This picture depicts Sydney's CBD seen from the hills around Frenchs Forest. The main image was taken with Pentax 645Z and 6x7 300mm f4 EDIF lens. But the moon is taken from a slightly earlier picture, shot at Turrimetta Beach using the 6x7 400mm f4 EDIF lens (that part of the file was scaled down in size to match the perspective of a 300mm shot). The scene was somewhat foggy, but the part of the foreground with the thick foggy band (and associated foreground buildings) was taken from a picture shot from Beacon Hill using the 6x7 400mm f4 EDIF lens. Oh, and the main scene was shot pre-dawn, but the Sydney Harbour Bridge isn't lit up at that time, so that part of the scene is from another image taken in the evening from the same location (and with the same 6x7 300mm f4 EDIF lens).

Son, that is very nicely done! Not only is the image excellent in every way technically, but it strikes an emotional chord. It makes me want to hear the story behind the image.:thumbs:

Thank you Dave as always for your kind supports to everyone on the forums. You are unbreakable and a symbol of hope.

I found the 3 trees sticking together in the wilderness like the Trinity so I felt this is something I wanted to use as a background for the mystical BW photo. When I visualized the condition, I also felt the light projection was useable to complement the shadow despite being a mid day sun. The gray outfit being in the shade casted a dominant black to contrast the very bright mid day sun in the field and the trees rendered in shade of mid gray. The photo has the brightest white, mid gray and black to represents the BW spectrum of the Trinity. The picture represents a widow mourns for her lost and looking at the Trinity for deliverance. Since we lost another family member this past week, this trinity symbol serves as a dedication to our lost and instills our hope.

A lovely image, and superb to hear the backstory and vision behind it.

My deepest condolences as well for your loss.

I always wanted a less "fantasy" version of the image above, to go with my broader portfolio, so here it is. Not entirely real, of course; I have still added the moon and composited the lit version of the bridge. But more realistic perhaps. The scene itself really did look much like this, moon and bridge aside.

Or perhaps you prefer this rendering, emphasising the twilight look more strongly:

Ed, I do prefer this "less fantasy" version. It looks real, even with the composited moon. Very nicely done.
