Outstanding. Like being a part of that scene. I enjoy your work as a rule and that one spoke louder than the rest recently have. Keep up the great work. :)
Moment of silence - Amsterdam, December, 2013
From the archive - one of my favorite photos. I woke up thinking about this photo this morning for some reason and dug it out of its hiding place on my hard drive.
Shot on my old Canon 40D in ~2010. Converted to BW in Silver Efex Pro. From my first drive down this section of Highway One. The sun was setting, the wind was up and the fog was rolling in as I tried to hold this one steady at base ISO and 1/25 second shutter speed. And look at that, I’d even dialed in 1 2/3 stops of negative EV. Sigh.
I remember having read somewhere that f16 was great for landscapes because the small aperture helped with the depth of field and overall sharpness. What I didn’t take into account at that time was the s-l-o-w shutter speed required at ISO100 to expose the shot properly.
Let’s just say I’ve learned a great deal since this shot about diffraction, the relationship between shutter speed, ISO and aperture and leave it at that. :)
