Mono Lake Winter Kayaking2

Mono Lake Winter Kayaking2
The photographer: ” shot this with Fuji Velvia 50 and a 2-stop hard GND filter and scanned it with a Nikon Coolscan IV. No real “processing” other than to try and match the original slide. It was a stormy late afternoon and I was near Paoha Island out in Mono Lake looking west towards the Sierra crest. This was a multi-day mid-winter solo kayak trip. The water color in the shallows had a greenish tint but the deeper water was quite blue. Mono Lake is 3 times saltier than the ocean which is why it’s not frozen in winter.”

The photographer: “the scene was real; the effect is manipulated.
To achieve this effect I simply duplicated the layer and added a gaussian blur filter, then used a soft eraser in the center to reveal the lower layer. I also used the burn tool around the edges.”

celebrating freedom

celebrating freedom, originally uploaded by Tatiana Cardeal.

This ceremony is an old religious afro-dance to honour the catholics São Benedito (St Benedict, the Moor), who is the patron saint of the black people and the saint Nossa Senhora do Rosario dos Pretos (Our Lady of Rosary of the Blacks), who is the protector from the slaves.
The slaves used the public space of the churchs to be reorganized and to create ways to resist and preserve their native traditions, as their dances, the drums, African melodies, dresses, that could somehow keep their African cultural heritage alive.
Today, the Congada ritual is a elebration of freedom of the slaves libertation, and a expression of their devotion.
There is a “Terno de Moçambique” group dancing, with their symbolic sticks, the weapon to defend the saints. They use it to beat as a percussion and to the coreography. We were at the Festival of the Traditional São Paulo Culture, realized by Abaçaí Cultura e Arte - Social Organization Of Culture.

heaven and hell



heaven and hell, originally uploaded by awfulsara.

The photographer: “This is one of my all time favorites, the first photo I took that blew me away, opened my eyes to the possibilities before me.

Taken in February of last year in Yellowstone National Park. The scene was even more surreal than a still photo can do justice, with steam rolling over the rise, creating backlit shifting patterns and shrouding the trees from view completely. Then for a moment, just a tiny moment, it would clear and the scene would split in half - all color and light and pristine snow on one side and twisted, tortured trees & steaming algae covered rock on the other.

I was a newbie to my 10D, and SLR photography in general, and had goofy settings - 800 ISO among other ridiculousness - which makes this shot one I would desperately desire to “redo” although I doubt I could recreate this if I tried. I will say this: if you ever get the opportunity to visit Yellowstone in the winter, for the love of Pete take that opportunity and run with it. Algae & Ice was taken the same morning…

Stony Creek Town Dock, #1 [Large version]

Filed under: — laurenz @ 6:08 am

The photographer: No Photoshopping: This (as well as the other Stony Creek night photos, and ‘Getty’ and ‘Ghost Parking Lot’) was shot with Fuji Provia 100F (35mm). With the smoothed water that comes with a long exposure and the presence of a mix of artificial light types (each with a distinct color cast), the effect is amazing. The slides I got back look exactly like these posted images!”
