A pleasant evening photography field trip at the Glenmore reservoir. Thanks for suggesting this Frankie.
Tight race – 100-400mm Canon Zoom at 300mm, f/5.6, 1/3000 sec, ISO 400. In post processing removed one distracting element (small sailboat). Enhanced image with “Levels” tool by removing non relevant pixels on the dark and light side, giving the image a crisper look.
Maybe the (enhanced) original is better.
I prefer the first one with the boat and the branches on the right removed.
That’s really gorgeous. Next year hopefully they’ll fly the spinnakers again.
Sailing on The Reservoir
ISO 200; f8; SS 1/1000. Converted to Black and White because of haziness. Also applied some dehazing.
Conditions: very hot bright evening.
Wow that’s amazing! Such a retro look.
I like the retro look, too!
Sailing on The Reservoir
ISO 640; f8; SS 1/1000.
Shot taken directly south; sun shining from the west.
Applied dehazing on this shot as well.
Every race needs a judge.
Shutter speed raised in hopes the Cormorant would fly…….but he didn’t!
ISO 1600; f8; SS 1/2000
Great candid shot
Sailing on The Reservoir
ISO 640; f8; SS 1/1000
Dehazing added but not as essential due to orientation towards the south and east.
Also minimized the sky due to haze.
Looks like fun!
I think this one might have been done with the “Back lighting” setting on my Canon EOS Rebel t5i. ISO 200, f/6.3, 1/1600.
ISO 100, f/13, 1/250.
I love the blue-black fade at the shoreline – along with the pretty blue water, it really makes the bright colours of the sails pop.
Heeled Over – ISO 640, f/14, 1/500.
At the start line. Cropped out four more boats on the right for a more closeup and dramatic look.
ISO 400, 240mm, f/13,1/1000
Amazing how action and excitement is conveyed by the angle of the sails and the spray. Also the crowded field of contestants gives it a feel of immediacy.
Some of the gang looking very picturesque.
ISO 400, 24 mm, f/13, 1/3200
Great “action” shot Frankie
I sent three photos to the Global Weather Window this morning and they used this one, probably because of the variety of boats.
ISO 400, 240 mm, f/16, 1/1600
I took this image of the dock and really altered it in Photoshop to reflect the theme that came to mind transporting me back to 1968. Otis Redding’s song “Sitting on the dock of the bay … wastin’ time”. I used a whole bunch of sliders in Camera Raw to get this effect of a grainy faded “bitter sweet” color print.
Pretty cool. Could be a postcard! The dock has never been curved before (that I’ve noticed!).
Trapeze act – f/8, 1/1000 sec, ISO 400
Love the action! Nice and sharp. Curious about the focal length and crop.
It was taken with my 100 to 400mm Canon EF Zoom lens at maximum (400mm) and cropped quite a bit. Here is the original image.
I shot this into the sun and this is what came out. Otherwise, my pictures were pretty similar to the others considering where I was standing. This effect looks rather old fashioned. Settings: AP, F8, S 1/6400, ISO 320, 150mm, Auto WB, CW Metering; cropped only
This was the first one that I took into the sun. It is only cropped and straightened. Settings: AP, 350 mm, F8, S 1/6400, Auto WB, CW Metering, Again, it has an old fashioned look. I didn’t do anything to the color.
Here’s the picture. Didn’t attached the first time.
I like the silhouette and B&W treatment of this image. Also an interesting crop. It conveys a real “mood”. Well done!
Thanks! It is actually not converted to B&W – that is how it came from the camera! Surprised me!
300mm ISO 800m1/320 f16
ISO 100 1/160 105mm f7.1
Wow – Beautiful !
ISO 160 1/320 f7.1 35mm
I like the colors. Clearly you stayed later. The golden hue is very nice.
thanks. That was the last boat in the water.
I could not resist, this my 4th and last entry. (Not counting the header image) Again the same subject as my first entry, just better in my opinion. f/8, 1/750 sec, ISO 400 on Aperture Preference +0.5 exposure compensation. Post processed with a bit of clarity and vibrance enhancement then using the levels tool, spreading the histogram over the full spectrum.
Three houses and three boats. Cropped the photo a bit to get this focus. There were so many opportunities for interesting photos.
Who is racing who? There was lots of action to cover on the water. Thanks for a fun outing.
I like the contrast, paddles versus sail
Not sure I “Envy” this crew and it doesn’t look like a “JOYRIDE” to me.
Taken with Lumix GX85, 100-300mm lens (mft) at 100mm (200mm ff), 1/320 sec, f/5, iso 200
Spoiler alert. Everyone came out of this ok.
Great action shot! Sailing is NOT boring!
Here is one for those missing the spinnakers.
GX84, 468mm ff, f/5.2, 1/500 sec, iso 640, cropped
Correction, Lumix GX85.
The kayakers were a great pre-show!
