PostPosted: Tue May 27, 2008 4:53 am 
hey all... beautiful reflection photos! this is my first entry, by no means fabulous, but I wanted to learn to post and thought I'd share an early shot from my first DSLR.

Image

Olympus E 510
Lens: 14-42mm
Focal length: 14mm
Aperture: F10
Shutter Speed: 1/200s
Sensitivity: 100 ISO
Post processing: none

Thanks everyone for sharing your awesome shots!

Hey everyone!!

I've been around here for a while but sadly without a camera. Finally, all that has changed with yesterday's arrival of the fantastic Canon EOS 40D!!! :P All I can say is what a machine!!

Anyway, I immediately got to work with this month's assignment in mind, and here's the result - the reflections from an equally fantastic machine (in my mind anyway! :P)

Image

Canon EOS 40D
Lens/Focal length: 17-85mm IS @ 85mm
Manual Exposure
Shutter: 1/10
Aperture: f/5.6
Sensitivity: 100 ISO
Post-processing: Unsharp mask applied in CS3, slight levels adjustments.

The main difficulty I found was getting the correct exposure while trying to control the highlights. The camera's auto modes were finding it difficult due to the high contrast in the image so manual was the only way to go. :D

Hope you like!!

Mark

Location: Lochinver. Sutherland. UK
2nd May on the shore of Loch Roe, Sutherland UK. http://tinyurl.com/583ntk

A fruitless morning spent waiting for the otters that live here to come and perform ... they didn't co-operate. Numb with boredom I shot a very conventional and tedious picture of the rocks and the loch. Once back home I tried spinning the image through about 40 degrees and cropping a slice out of it. I then turned the image such that the reflection was at the top.

Canon EOS350D with Vivitar 100-300 ISO800 dull conditions 1/250 @ f6.3

SORRY but I've tried and failed to enter the code to get a thumbnail to appear here, I'm off to lie in a darkened room before I try again.

Here with my very first post for 'on assignment', and to say I'm nervous is an understatement :lol: posting among such fantastic photographers here that have so much creativity as well :oops: :lol: But, everyone starts somewhere right?! :D

Nothing new in the way of creativity here but I just loved the smooth clear water and the reflection. It was taken at Loch Oire in Moray, Scotland.

Hola

The post of the month from me. Haven’t actually been as active to capture a reflection as I wanted to but this one is what I came up with.

Image

Not as creative an idea as the picture of last month. However, kind of nicely binds the assignments of April and May together – transportation and reflection. I like the wide-angel effect the curved window does to the photo.

Camera Model: Canon PowerShot G9
Lens: Standard
Focal length: 44,4mm
Aperture: f/8.0
Shutter Speed: 1/25
ISO: 80
Post processing: "I feel lucky"-button in Picasa and cropping

JC

I wasn't going to enter this week but I thought why not :P

ImageIt was taken with a Holga 135BC the film is ISO 200, Aperture f/11, 1/60 of a second. These are a rough estimate, I can't remember the settings exactly :P

Light Falling On Alien Planet Earth

Light reflecting upon green aqua-life in a small pond.

Bizarre, foreign in appearance
and yet we are relatives to it all

Sigh. Couldn't forgive myself if I didn't bother this month. In 2 minutes, 2 pieces of paper, a pen, and a lamp, this is what I've come up with:

Image

D200, 18-70mm @ 50mm
f/5
1/100
ISO400

PP: Crop.
