Little River Marsh in Winter Dress

I am hoping this particular view, dressed as it is, is soon a memory I won’t have to revisit for at least 6 months…and of course, this particular combination of storm clouds, snowy landscape, snow frosted trees, and cusp of spring light is unlikely to ever occur again. This is another shot I took too off. The other view is at the bottom and I can’t really decide which I like best. Though they are the same exact vista, the are very different images. To my eye at least.

Canon SX20IS at about 85mm equivalent. F4 @ 1/250th @ ISO 100. Programmed auto, biased just slightly for the sky.

Some Recovery for the sky, and Fill Light for the foreground. Only a touch of Blackpoint right. Added Clarity and a tiny amount of Vibrance. Exposure increased slightly for the snow.

From Around Home 2010.

And here is the other view.

This one is at 28mm equivalent, F4 @ 1/250th @ ISO 100. Programmed auto as above. Processing as above. In this one the sky is more the subject than the land.

    Top cropped shot is much more exciting, focuses on amazing clouds; one of those ‘glimpse into the heavens’ shots. Bottom shot is just pretty sky. IMO. KP

    Northerly winds are still blowing here … more snow expected. A proper winter, in other words …

    I find myself in two minds about these photos. The first has the diagonal of the lead in the ice. The second has the sky. Which is more important? By a narrow margin the second.
