Cincinnati DEC_1146w.jpg
'Circular Cincinnati'
While out yesterday, I was planning on some street shots for week #42, but only had interest in playing/practicing with the fisheye. Another shot of Cincinnati with a cloudy dramatic sky that wasn't added.

Wowsa! That's very cool. I've never used a fisheye but it looks fascinating. You've got the distortion all trapped in the lower half of the image, which is a very nice effect that I'm not used to seeing done.

Thanks Minnie !!! I have found that the fisheye isn't for every image. I'm still practicing to find what is a most appropriate subject when using the lens. I may never figure it out, but I'm gonna have fun trying.

I'm gonna jump ahead and cheat to week #43. Here is an HDR image of Cincinnati at a different location than the (fisheye) image. This one I used a 16-28mm wide angle lens @16mm. I haven't done an HDR in quite sometime, but my reasoning for it was to get a long exposure shot to enhance movement in the clouds without having a blown out overexposed sky. My experiment didn't work with movement, but I still like the effect shown. Maybe with more experimentation, success will come around, or maybe invest in a neutral gradient filter.

The bottom is a little dark for my taste, but the city itself looks wonderful, almost surreal.

(My cheating may involve delay, unless I find a way to get some wi-fi along the way).

From your description I feel a crop with some darkening of the foreground and brightening of the background would be in order...hard to describe what I envision....

Dave, I really like the fisheye and the selenium treatment. The texture is super and the detail is remarkable; they keep me moving in the frame. Very well done. Matt

Thanks Minnie !!! I agree, the foreground is on the dark side. I left it that way because, to me, because of my location, it (foreground) could not be avoided. Live and learn.
