Sunrise zoom capture

Post by minniev »

I don't remember whether I was zooming in or zooming out for this particular capture, but it's pretty much as it was taken.

Of course there's all kinds of funky stuff along the bridge, the long zig zaggy swoop of the car lights and the reflectors that are on each post. I left all of it there because I thought it was kinda interesting but I know from experience that some things I consider interesting are simply bothersome to other people. So what do you suggest?

one option is to paint out the yellow distraction - and perhaps a backlit rowboat and the 13 year old girl captain in the foreground going into the light.

I’ll try painting out the swoop first...

BTW the chickadee looks great printed on Red River Aurora Natural..will show you when I take it to its new home.

From normal viewing distance it gives a point of focus to the image....but then it's not clear enough to know what it is soooo I dunno what to tell you. The color and smoothness of clouds and water are rather pleasant though.

I was of mixed mind. I liked what the zoom capture did to the sky and color, but the bridge may be a bridge too far!
