Good Morning

July 29th, 2008

I found this in my archives, it's similar to my Layered Sunrise shot with a slightly different foreground. This was taken on Auckland's North Shore at sunrise.

Yes, I tweaked the curves in Photoshop. I don't recall saying they were straight out of the camera.

Fantastic work Chris! This looks fantastic! I love the scenery you guys have over there. The colors look great to me and could be very close to realistic. I totally love your work mate. Keep it up.

To Hello: Nothing that comes out of the camera will look like the eye and brain perceived the image. All photo mediums are deficient in latitude (ability to see dark and light simultaneously), thus we have a high dynamic range (HDR) sandwich. And all photo mediums are more or less sensitive to some colors, thus we have curves and levels to make the image more like we "saw" it. In addition, the actual perception of a scene can be much different as the brain concentrates on certain elements such as the golden light in the shot, so editing can make the final image more like what was felt and perceived than as a photo journalistic record of the scene.

@ bdwilcox and to the first poster.

Totally agreed! Well said. I have been shooting for some time and no matter what camera you use they all have limitations and when someone asks me if the capture was doctored up it's a pointless question unless the scene looks totally surreal such as a green sky instead of the blue. My clients have been very happy with so called "doctored up" images. In case you didn't know most commercial/professional images are tweaked in the software that is why they look so good and appealing to our eyes. Just wanted to shine a little light on some of you that may not be familiar with professional photography.

Thanks guys, well said. I think to some people Photoshop is a dirty word, but like you say it's a necessary tool due to limitations of our cameras. Maybe one day they will have HDR cameras which will make post-processing a thing of the past :)

Some photographers do claim to get magical shots out of the camera though, mainly using filters. For example, this guy's work is amazing, and he says he does minimal PP: http://wildphoto.smugmug.com/

what about the exposition time?! more than a second isn't it?

Exposure time was 35 seconds for this shot (EXIF is available in the image if you're interested in other settings).

Forgot to mention, I used a 10-stop ND filter which is what gave me the long shutter.

Chris, for such a long exposure (35 seconds), I can't see any recognizable noise in the shot. What camera did you use and did you do any post processing to the RAW image to reduce noise?
Posted By: Chris Gin
about 15 years, 8 months ago
I use a Canon EOS 350D (with a Tamron 17-50 lens for this shot). Noise is usually my biggest enemy, even with short exposures, but for some reason this one wasn't too bad. I did use Noise Ninja to reduce what noise was there though (just the default options).

Simply stunning. I always love these shots because the water looks so cool. It's like ice, or a vapor. But moreover, the colors are fantastic (and again, stunning).

I've been using this image as a wallpaper on and off since it first appeared here... I keep it on for a week, then find something for a day, another thing for another day... and so on... and then somehow this picture shows up again. I rocks... simple as that.
