Shadow frame 27069 by Thomas, on Flickr

Shot in harsh autumn light, it proves that shadows can produce some pretty black framing.

When I took this shot, I noticed how nice the black mixed with the lights in the picture. It seems almost impossible to get one to work without the other.

Hi folks,

Been meaning to try this out for ages and the restricted colour palette offered the perfect opportunity:

    Image
    • Camera Model: Canon EOS 5D Mark II
    • Lens: EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM
    • Image Date: 2010-10-19 17:42:07 +0100
    • Focal Length: 65.0mm
    • Aperture: f/4.0
    • Exposure Time: 0.050 s (1/20)
    • ISO equiv: 800
    Processing
The trick here was to take the original image, produce five copies, apply differing levels of monochromatic noise to the water for each copy, copy and paste seven different selections between pairs of images to fool (only to some extent) the brain's pattern recognition and then combine those five versions into a sequence of ten images separated by 1/5th of a second between each "frame" - phew!! Saved as an "ANI", of course, which hopefully will display correctly on your browser.

OK, I've been through hoops to get this effect from a single original (am I within the rules?) and it would have been easier and better to do it from a video sequence. The point was to ask the question as to whether there's any room, in an artistic sense, for a crossover between stills imagery and pure video.

Bob.

No streetlighting, population 1 person per square kilometer, no conurbations=no sky glow. North West Scotland is a very DARK place where on a moonless, clear starry night the starscape takes your breath away.

But ... full moon on the mountains produces an ethereal sight too!
