Traveling light on a bike ride 1

  1. The CP8800 is great to carry on a bike ride. Just it and no other gear. It is so light it makes the ride pleasant, and your mind is keenly open to the details around worth the shooting.
    This one has a little of the Orton effect added to it.

    This is from the side of the path. Nothing else but the impression of being there, in the light and shadows, the breeze playing in the wild plants.

    As you sit down for a snack, you notice that life was here before and will continue after you.

    Christian,

    that is a really nice camera ,, and the VR is super to have on a P&S..

    wouldn't mind one of those myself. I have a CP5000, which is a good camers. But VR would be great for me.

    Nice shots, good color. #1 an #3 are just great.

    I kinda get lost in the second one somewhere :>))

    Hope you got a close up of the pretty purple flowers though..
     
  4. Thank you Anand. It's just a detail, almost insignificant until you notice it and it tells you somethnig.
     
  5. I appreciate your comment Gale.

    VR is one asset on this camera, but since it operates at ISO 50, it is almost mandatory. I'm pleased by the quality of the lens and how the 8Mp copes with its resolution.
    Working in Raw is just too slow though. During this ride, I have switched to JPG Fine, paying great attention to the exposure.
    As for the "featureless" second shot, I can understand your reaction. But I just can't help making some of these "empty" shots from time to time. Actually, in this case here, it is unprovably organized by a diagonal marked by the purple flowers, with hairy grass in the LR triangle and well drawn vertical weeds in the UL triangle. Oh well...

    Nicely done, Christian! I like all 3 shots, and do get a little sense of the movement in the second one.

    Christian,

    I understand the image a bit better. Often times I look at this type on scenery and never think to photograph it.

    Maybe lost is what i like also. Light and shadows are nice in the image.
     
  8. Very serene scenes, beautiful contrast and color.
     
  9. Gale, you have some incredible skies in your gallery. I love your early in the morning fire in the sky - it is just breathtaking.
