I enjoy the technical challenge of shooting into the sun and creating images like this.
It's a wonderful shot, i like!!
Thank you Lizab
You are very right Ian - I love this park. Its a ten mile drive but we always see heron and kingfisher and get to talk to lots of anglers. I can sit for hours on an old log by the bank (as long as I have my camera, of course).
Many thanks - Jethro
What a beautiful night shot!
This photo is amazing!
Good guess Gyöngyi but this time, it is the sun!
It is before sunset.
Hahaha.... don't worry. I keep you guessing!
Many thanks - J
Very nice, Jethro. I really like the sun. Very well done! like
Its all not quite as punchy as I'd like but it makes the point I guess.
Its been sunny and warm here today! Perfect fall weather Patty
Best wishes - Jethro
Here begineth the humor....Jethro....A smack on picture.../...According to 'Herb'....shooting into the sun can be known as.. 'contre-jour'....(I had to look up..what it meant).....yes...I too enjoy this style...it brings out good contrast and as in your picture here..illuminates foreground detail....Dj.
Thank you David I like to think of mine differently. With Contre-jour there is a loss of detail.... I am trying to reflect the sun as it really is, just another star in the sky!
Maybe juts a wee bit closer!
Keep smiling - Jethro
Best regards, Don Z.
Nice shot Jethro. I really like how you added the sun (effect).
Thank you Don
Randy WHAT! ADDED! :o)
I am really into shooting into the sun right now. I have a lens with lots of blades on it aperture and I love to pull the colors out of the RAW file and get these star bursts. So while I know what you mean about adding the sunburst - this am de real ting!
Stay smiling my friends - Jethro
No humouring Jethro...it really is good! Like.
Many thanks Rosa - I enjoy doing these and when someone (like you) says they like it.... that's a bonus.
its great picture indeed! and i am totally with you here, i have few shots like this myself. if you where lucky enough to get the angle right the shots come out realy pretty like this one. keep 'em coming! :)
Thank you Unda - they are enjoyable aren't they?
Thank you A-J
That worked well, Jethro. It's lovely. I would be scared in case the sun frazzled the sensor!
I'm not sure how likely that is. I am/was an Electronics Engineer and that gives me license to be stupid in matters like these.
Thanks for the compliment however!
Best wishes for 2013 - Jethro
