The "Big Melt" is underway (variety of lenses)

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by Frits, Mar 27, 2007.

  1. Early this afternoon, near where I live.
    The sky is very gray, everything is still bare, but the snow and ice is melting away.

    Later in the afternoon the sun actually showed up to provide just a little color.

    Yep, another one for two. When you can find a photo in all that brown and dead, you've got an eye. Keep 'em coming!

    Beautiful shots. I love the pastel look of the two last shots.
  7. Number two is special...Great as always Frits..
  8. Very nice Frits! Of course, this also means mud season is here!!! :tongue:
  9. Hi Frits !
    #2 is a pleasure to look at - the tonalities translate the moody haze just right. And we read the birds going from right to left as coming back.
  10. nice set Frits! I too am drawn to number 2
  11. Thanks all for your kind comments. I like the second a lot also, in fact it prints beautifully.
    I like thinking outside the box at times. When you look at the 2nd shot, you will see that it is from about the same position as #3, the classic landscape image with the lens that goes with it.
    Earlier, when it was still pretty hazy, I slapped on the 105mm to get some pastel effect - or at least try and see what it would look like.
    Well, whaddaya know :smile: : hmmm, looks OK, nice lines throughout the image, rule of thirds is there... Then, by a stroke of dumb luck, the point of interest was provided by the flight of geese that came out of nowhere....CLICK, gotcha!
