I've been sifting through some older photos and finding some that I'd forgotten about. This is from December 2002, taken with my Olympus 2000-Z on a moody day on the magnificent Deschutes River. I really need to get back out there soon!
I've recently turned off comments for a variety of reasons, the biggest of which is that I haven't really had time to take many photos these days, and therefore get few comments. This means that largely, I just fight spam. You may still email me at the contact address if you wish.
Alright,you got me, i'm back. I was losing hope for awhile. I dono, pictures or urban decay just seem like bathroom grafitti after awhile. Colorful crisp documentation, sure, but man! you got a composer's eye. Let it out more often. You've got a few cool city pictures, but you've been getting intoxicated by the cool imaging system. Go out to the Deschutes tomorrow! Do it!
I love this one! The curve of the river and your relatively low vantage point is great.
The sky seems a bit overblown to me. I wonder if you brightened it up in Photoshop and lost some of the sky in the process? If so, you could select only the foreground when you brighten, right? Or maybe this is really just how the sky looked that day! Anyway, great lighting and contrast on the foreground - that is what draws me in to this picture.
Yeah, the sky is actually blown out in the photo. Hard to avoid sometimes in this situation if you want any other detail. I agree it could be better, but this was all I had, and it was still an appealing image.
Thanks for the comments guys, maybe I'll do a little more sifting. I too love the nature shots, veg :-).
It's been said, but the curve is well composed. The clouds, the colors, and DOF are all wonderful.
