Radiant

  1. I was struck by the movement radiating from that tree. I tried to frame it in a sweet spot with the lines of the branches echoed by that of the bridge in the background. It's more of a study - thus, the B&W. Perhaps the heart is missing here.
    I went back today with my D70 (new firmware and a new Blue/Yellow filter). Still have to work it - and I may post it too.

    I think you're right. It has potential.
     
  4. Hi Christian,

    I think you're right. This scenic has a potential. A suggestion if you don't mind : try a lower position toward the ground with the camera tilting up to include more radiant branches into the picture.
     
  5. Thank you - good suggestion. I did try it, but on that day, the sky was all grey and I feared that tilting up would include too much of that bland space. I will explore some more and get back to the spot when the sky is more interesting. Also, was I stuck to some rigid principle ?, moving up the lens displaced the focus of radiation from the UL to the middl left.
