Foggy Foggy Dew

Postby pah43 » Sun Aug 28, 2016 2:33 am

Our Photo group recently had a great weekend in the lower Flinders Ranges In South Australia, we woke up to a perfect morning, no wind, slight fog and sunshine - everything we could have dreamed of (we don't often see any fog at all) This shot is one of my favorites from our early session. I think I achieved what I set out to get and that was of course the atmosphere of the moment - a higher key shot showing the fog showing the delicate colors almost as a painting. Exif - Nikon d5200, Sigma 17-50 @ 40mm, f4 @ 1/100th sec, iso 200.

I don't feel qualified to truly Critique the shot other than to say that I like it and think it's interesting.

I can't recall who said, "if you want interesting photos, take photos of interesting things." In this case the landscape is enchanting, mysterious and quite interesting. I especially like how the dry creek bed pulls you into the scene. The photo itself in reminiscent of an oil painting.

My only critique is the landscape has a very distinctive separation between foreground, middleground and background. I feel it could use a more definitive separation of the layers in this image. As is, there are parts that fade into each other somewhat and could benefit from a little separation. In particular the a between the midground trees and the background.

Just my two bits. I wish there were scenes like this around my place. Thanks for sharing.

Nice image. If it were mine, I think I might have gotten a bit closer to the "trees" and eliminated some of the "green" foreground. This would have required opening up the lens to maybe 25-30mm. I think if you crop it just before the water starts it will place more emphasis on the foggy, foggy part of the image.
