Piers at play

Post by pop511 » Mon Aug 13, 2018 6:21 pm

On another post called " 5 Ways to Simplify and Improve your Landscape Photography " there was a picture of a pier leading into the sea. Having a slow shutter speed, it blurred the water nicely. The attached picture had structures leading into the sea, but I didn't drag the shutter, so I thought I'd try to fake the blur in P/s.
Next job is to go down to the harbour with tripod and do it for real.
Have fun;

Makes a nice blue abstract done up this way!

These kinds of images are so hard to work with once they're taken, and I always seem to end up somewhere like this with no tripod, and try to do it without. Cameras are better than they once were with slow/handheld, but nothing beats a tripod and strong ND filter to get drama out of water.

I will share a trick I tried in another thread, when confronted with this dilemma.

interesting shot and process - this looks like a place to visit over and over - A foggy day comes to mind, a boat or better yet, ship at the end, sunrise or sunset, the list goes on and on.

PietFrancke; Wish I could do image processing to your level.

"interesting shot and process - this looks like a place to visit over and over - A foggy day comes to mind, a boat or better yet, ship at the end, sunrise or sunset, the list goes on and on."

Played with it a bit more. I did put a boat into it, but it looked silly as I had no model to place inside, so I backed off and kept it simple.
Damn I missed doing the shadow under the dolphin.

Look at my thread in the post processing section about smoothing water. You may want to try something similar or you may have suggestions for me in my quest.

I wish to get much better - right now my sights are on Minnie! One big thing I learned is that Play is very important. And doing it a lot. Every time something goes right, it is a victory!

We work in the digital world, but that does not mean we can't steal knowledge from the non-digital world. And to that point, my favorite web site is www.ctrlpaint.com. And I have three books that I am plowing through:
1 Schmid's Alla Prima II Everything I Know About Painting -- and More
2 Robertson's How to Draw -- Drawing and Sketching Objects and Environments from Your Imagination
3 Robertson's How to Render -- the Fundamentals of Light, Shadow, and Reflectivity

Those three books and that web site are LOADED with solid information - places where you can cut through the fluff and have a chance to study and learn.

Thx Minni and Piet;
You are so, so right in your comments. Looking at that 2nd picture there are still mistakes.
I am too impatient in my work and pay the price for it.
Most of my ideas and inspiration come from Arunz/Rafy_A/BlueLightning to name a few on youtube.
Have fun;
