photoblog image Water & Wall

Water & Wall

A similar shot to the last one. A few people asked how the image was taken. Both this and the last used the ir72 (Hoya) filter to extend the shutterspeed.

All the best. mal

Much stronger and tidier geometric organization than the last version, which I like a lot. However, I did like the contrast between the gauzy water and the wall in the last one.

The first cut is the deepest ...

In this one I love those scudding clouds. Excellent composition as well.

The place were mermaids live.

The way you've framed it makes me feel as if I am standing with my feet in the water.

I think I prefer this one - the composition is tighter and the image more striking. I must get my IR filter out again - it's just really difficult to see anything once it's in place!

Like the strong graphic element from the wall - braced for a battering that it won't recieve as you have calmed the waves ;o)

Bought my IR filter two months ago and stil waiting to try it out!

Another stunning shot but, of the two, I think I prefer the previous one. I`ve been trying to work out why, and I think it is to do with the way the base of the wall meets the sea. (:o)

I like the cobblestones leading to the water and the wonderful sky.

In some ways I think I prefer this one, probably because of the cloud movement. The double yellow lines are quite comical! What film did you use in the 1n ?

If you'd follow Kathryn's example (see her last post) and start attaching music to your images, Mogwai or Sigur Ros will be a perfect match for your photography.

It's a milky sea, Mal, and the clouds are spinning their tales. I'm guessing Avalon is around the corner somewhere!

Thanks for explaining how you did this. I was one of the curious ones!

I love the curves of the wall, the clouds are a treat to me, love the composition, thank you so much for explaining how you did this.
My first reraction was that I preferred yesterday's but I'm not so sure now. Anyway I like them both...oh and thanks for the info about the filter

An exciting, dramatic sky like on the first day of creation "Let there be light"; and there was light..." And an impressive milky or misty sea, a still quiet, hidden area, but some time later there could emerge, surface...I don't know, I'm afraid of some bad daemons, for the wall and the stones signalize the powerful, dominant man-made- world, an allusion to the tower of Babel..., or the beginning of zivilisation with all the janus-headed character of our inventions perhaps leading to an apocalypse - in general a rather enigmatical, mythical photo which may inspire some remembrances, reflections and feelings; it could be taken in Scotland or in an other wild, rough landscape where you could feel to be the first or - the last human being on the world!
Quality work Mal

Another cracking example of the technique Mal. I really will have a go at this sometime.

Now, those are lead-in lines, if I have ever seen some. It looks as if you had the cloud moving perfectly in unison with the stones. Great... How do you command the clouds? wink
Strange even surrealist picture : I like it very much !!
Another great experience!
