Scotland and autumn
Apologies for a lack of activity here in many days – the Scottish holiday was very good, and produced one or two good photographic opportunities, and I will post some below. Autumn is ahead, and a very busy time work-wise; but I will attempt to keep my blog updated when I can. Cheers!
First of all, here is a shot of a typical seaside view from the Isle of Bute, looking South West to Arran in the distance. In many of these landscape shots I was experimenting with landscape lenses and filters, so things are often not perfect but I was glad for the opportunity to practice, including with post-processing.
Nikon D800E / 50f1.4G / Lee 105 cpl
Focus stack of 3 frames, ISO 100 1/5 f/7.1
+ manual luminosity blend for sea, mountains, and sky at 2.5″ taken a little later.
Taken about 20+ mins after sunset
This shot is not technically perfect, and I think the light could have been a little better. Technically, I needed one more frame for equally sharp detail 1/3 up from the bottom to maximize sharpness throughout the frame, though this isn’t a huge distraction at this size.
