July 3/20 Landscape

Framed Landscape with multiple subjects.

On July 3, 2020 our group did an evening field trip to Confederation Park. This field trip photo submission page is open to all CALL Digital Photography Participants whether you attended or not. The submission page will stay open for at least a week, so anyone can go out and try their landscape photography skills on this beautiful park. Don’t feel intimidated, the intent is to submit images and learn from each other. I would be interested to see the before and after post processing images.

    Photo wars! 10-22mm lens. ISO 1600, 10 mm, f/8, 1/160. Cropped, lightened with exposure slider, lightened shadows.

    • Henri says:

      Looks like a spaghetti western shootout ! Love the leading lines and the subject in the middle. Having a single interesting subject in a strong landscape background makes for compelling images. Having the original to compare makes the post processing description more valuable. Well done Frankie

  2. Frankie says:

    Original. Also straightened -0.6.

  3. Frankie says:

    Mainly cropped and lightened shadows. Colours (grass in sunlight) and exposure look natural in the original photo (below), but the faces were way too dark when I cropped.
    ISO 1000, 24 mm, -0.7 EV, f/9, 1/320

  4. Frankie says:

    Original of above photo.

    Falls at Confederation Park – Before Image.
    SS 1/13; F8.0; ISO 80; Focal Length 35mm.

    Noted that Linda’s hair is blown out a little as is some grass.

    • Henri says:

      I like the low angle of your shot. It brings out the bridge arch which frames the little waterfall. I would have tried more contrast enhancement with the “Levels” tool. Some of the rocks on the left side are “blown out”.

  6. Frankie says:

    Our group. Cropped and lightened a tiny bit.
    ISO 1000, 28 mm EV -0.7, f/9, 1/320

  7. Diana says:

    Correction…….that is the wrong picture for the comments above (this is a little more difficult posting similar images!!). Correct Image to follow.

  8. Diana says:

    After Picture with Linda shown above…………shooting details shown above.
    Before Picture shown next. I lowered the highlights to reduce the glare on Linda’s hair.

    Sherryl’s Coton de Tulear is all head! It looks like there could not possibly be room for the rest of him in there. Pretty cute!

    • Henri says:

      Beautiful rich colours. I like the children subject framed between the weir and the curved bridge. I would have cropped more off the left of the image to make the subject more central.

  17. della says:

    should be f16 1/160

      Wow. I love this composition Della. Beautiful balance and complementary colour scheme. The leading line of the path and the trees. Well spotted !

  27. Joe says:

    First image of waterfall. ISO 1000; F 8.0; SS of 1/125 sec. Water not silky.

  28. Joe says:

    Image #2 in roughly the same location. ISO 100; F 18; SS of 1/3 second.
    Water silky from change of all three “exposure triangle elements”. RAW image taken in Manual with Auto focus and white balance. and processed in Luminar

  29. Joe says:

    One final waterfall photo from another angle. ISO 100; F 18′ SS of 1/2 second.
    RAW image taken in Manual with Autofocus and Auto white balance and processed in Luminar.

    • Henri says:

      Beautiful silky smooth. Nice composition. I would have played with the “Levels” tool to recover the lost detail in the rocks.

  30. Ron says:

    Here is another slightly different view of the waterfall. ISO 100, f/7.1, 1/40. Some light adjustments (opening up the shadows and reducing the highlights), plus minor cropping.

  31. Ron says:

    The sun blew a hole in this one, so not sure if it is worthy of posting, but I find the abstract quality provided by the lens flare appealing. ISO 100, f/22, 1/8. Again, some opening up the shadows and reducing the highlights, plus reduced brightness.

  32. Linda says:

    Silky waterfall with downstream swirls

    • Henri says:

      Beautiful well executed image Linda. I love how all the detail is preserved in the rocks. The whirlpool lines provide foreground interest leading to the waterfall. Well done!

  33. Geoff says:

    Waterfall framed with the trees. Soft water effect.
    1/1.3 second (0.77 sec), f 29, ISO 100, 44mm
    Lightened shadows and darkened highlights a bit in photoshop elements

  34. Geoff says:

    Waterfall framed in trees. Stop action effect.
    1/320 sec, f 5.6, ISO 635, 44mm.
    Lightened shadows and darkened highlights very slightly.
    The previous “soft water” shot had an f stop of 29 and this one is 5.6, so the former had better defined trees because of the depth of field. I tried to get the “hard water” part layered into the “in focus trees” just for fun but so far results have been underwhelming. Work in progress!!

  35. Robert Scott says:

    I was looking for high contrast drama, cropped

  36. Robert Scott says:

    Opps that last one a bit large
    resized and re cropped,
    ISO800 f16 1/200
