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.”

Arches National Park, Utah

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.”

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!”

Jeff says: “Grand Tetons, Wyoming, U.S.A. - Moulton Barn - July, 2003…the clouds parted just as I snapped the shot and I was pleasantly surprised to see the end result. Cloud movement is all luck….and I got lucky.
The “most favorited” photo in my Flickr photostream….and yes - those are bison.”
