Linda this is the best photograph I have ever seen shared on TrekLens and one of the very best I have seen in a very long time anywhere. Simply put it captures so much emotion from so many aspects, even from behind the camera. Of course, were we not privy to the story, we might not know that by just looking at the photo. We could surmise, hypothesize or imagine it and the photo could be just as impactful. You have captured a spirit, and I think that is the most important element that a photographer can record in that split second - beyond your typically excellent composition and technical expertise shown. Just awesome. Congratulations on your son's marriage and for making such a fine image. You must be so proud!
Hey nice one Ron - great composition and the exposure is just perfect.
Wow - nice compo Trudy - good eye! The exposure is perfect for the impact of the natural framing.
Really great graphism with this one, Trudy. It would work in portrait aspect, too. If you got two or three of these, each just a bit different, you could frame them and sell them as a set at Ikea... This one is really interesting with the three colors, the razor sharpness and the curvy lines cutting through the middle. Excellent crop, well seen pattern!
Linda that is a great idea. I never thought of doing that, but now I will try it. I like your result - at first I wasn't sure what I was looking at, but the note helped. Nice composition and exposure, too.
Thank you for the idea!
How lucky are you, huh?
Nice job, quick thinking, too. You got this youngster really clearly - he must have pulled up fairly close.
I like the performance of that Sigma lens, too - I need a low light zoom so I have been comparing that one to the Nikon. Maybe I won't have to save quite as much money!
But anyway, nice job!
What a fortunate opportunity with the ability to capture this safely. I never had the pleasure of seeing grizzly in the wild but I had a great trip up there in the Canadian Rockies in 2008. It was elk rutting season, which held it's own dangers. I was pulling into the Jasper Fairmont parking lot one evening after dinner and a big bull elk missed sideswiping our SUV by mere inches. I thought a train was going by!
Anyway, you did very well with the hand-holding at 1/45 and really well with the sharpening - I can't really tell that this shot has been sharpened very much at all.
Have a great day!
Nice exposure and composition to show us how this tree lays. Something like this usually confounds me on how to exactly portray it, but you did a good job.
Have a great day,
Very well done, Dai. The light is perfectly diffused to eliminate any harsh shadows and you were so lucky to have this child in a good mood for a few moments.
It's a great capture and I imagine you could have saved your daughter a little money!
Nice compo and framing - her name is beautiful, too. It must be nice to have grandchildren. I have but one great niece whom I think I can depend upon for several years of free modeling service, but no grandkids I can call my own.
Have a wonderful weekend,
Nice idea, this wedding photo. Excellent, perfect depth of field, suitable for framing or an 8x10 in anyone's wedding album. While I hope to not have to shoot another wedding ever, if I somehow get roped into one, I may have to steal this idea.
Have a nice weekend,
