1/10/2011: running away icy

I think this will be my last pic taken in 2010. Tomorrow we will move into the new year! This is Emmon’s Preserve again, in Kennebunkport Maine, with the little Baston Brook (river?) running down over ledges away from us. It was a difficult shot to frame as there was no clear line of site.

This is the wider view, which I also quite like, despite its busy foreground.

If you compare the two you will see that I had to clone out the little branch tip in the first shot.

Canon SX20IS at 85mm equivalent, f4 @ 1/125 @ ISO 80, Snow Mode, and at 28mm equivalent, f4 @ 1/250 @ ISO 80, Snow Mode.

Processed in Lightroom for intensity and clarity (see page link above).

    They look like snapshots. They have no center of focus and do not use even the basic rules of photography such as depth-of-field to generate a focus. There is also nothing especially pleasant about the scene. Using a time exposure to create a more flowing look might.

    I like both pix. The water is framed by both ice and snow. And the water looks realistic to me, unlike some flowing water I see.
