Sunrise after the Storm

August 14th, 2007

This was taken on the shore of Lake Winnipeg at about 4:30 in the morning. An epic storm had just finished going through and had worked its way across the lake by this time. If this picture doesn't get accepted I give up on ever trying to submit here again :

While I'm not quite as set off as Andrew I am a little surprised that this picture made the site. It's incredibly blurry and it doesn't seem to be a result of artistic rendering. It looks like it was a great scene, but I think the shot needed a tripod and/or a shorter exposure so you didn't get the cloud motion.

The thumbnail version looks amazing, but when you enlarge it you see that it really is too blurry. It's nice to know that the people at interfacelift have a heart and didn't want to see you leave the site. Keep working on it...

I agree. It's way to blurry when blown up into a large size.

Bah... don't mind the insults. The scene in this picture is good, but it probably turned out blurry because there isn't enough light. Trying using a tripod and a longer exposure -- you might get some motion blur, but the image will probably turn out crisper.

I actually like the way this picture was composed a lot. I will have to say, it is a bit blurry blown up and I noticed that it was also rather grainy. If you didn't use a tripod, than using one will definitely help keep the picture sharper. Also, check to see if your camera has long exposure noise reduction. This will help as well. Good luck.

Actually, i don't know if it was intentional or not, but i like how the clouds are blurry. Its just a long exposure and the clouds are blurry cause they're moving. He or she obviously used a tripod cause the bridge is not blurry. I think of it that the bridge has been standing still for years, as the world blows by. The only problem is that the image is a bit grainy.

it looks nice as a thumbnail but when you enlarge it looks far too grainy. i don't mind the blur but too much grain. thanks for the effort anyway :)make sure to adjust ISO Settings next time ;)

Don't mind the negativity, it's always there once you step out of the crowd.

A very good first accepted submission. Take the constructive criticism in mind and go get your second one!

I also agree that the bar for acceptance here at IFL is very very high. That's a good thing, but it can get you down when you don't make the cut.

Don't lose heart.

Going to have to agree with the negativity. This isn't a stellar shot. I could have handled the motion blur, since a long exposure is necessary for lighting like this, but it's still way too grainy. Beyond that I'm not sure I even like the composition very well, the shot doesn't feel framed well.

Well, yeah it is very blurry; but to be perfectly honest I think it's a very very good shot because it's sort of abstract-ish kinda... What i'm trying to say is it's more like a painting. Nice pic. ^_^

hey, I have it on my desktop right now. I love this image. The blurred clouds have THE BEST effect on the whole image. Clouds should always be slightly blurred in this type of situation. I have this image for my Blackberry as well. Yove done a great job with it, all people know how to do anymore is critisize. I have been in this position before. just keep on going yeah ifl is extreamly hard to please, but keep working at it anyways do not give up man. Keep on...

tsk, tsk, seems to me that some of the hyper critics praying on this work are just not familiar with the northern storms and the way the clouds get ragged and "blurred" by the same action of the hard winds and the coldness of the higher layers of the air.
