Default At the beginning of a hike last Sunday

Last Sunday we walked from one lake in the south of Munich to neigboring lake.

The light in the morning was marvelous. Here are two glimpses.






Best regards,
Michael

Michael,

This is an immediate eye catcher with the light and the unexpected geometry in the water reflections. You have discovered an electric landscape. This is worth settling in to document further. I notice also special interest for me in the isolated individual rocks before the sienna colored grasses in the foreground. There's a lot of such specific interest that will be apparent in a print.

It works so well in color but I also wonder how it might appear in B&W.

Asher

This is a gem to add to the first picture, with the sun caught reflecting between the grasses. I hope there's more like this. Who knows, you might even find some water fowl or even a fisherman.

Asher,

thanks for pointing it out - it seems that geometry is still a dominant factor for my compositions.
This is actually a slight crop of the original photo, but I did not like the original version, so I ended up with this version.

Looking at the second photo - this is a diagonal composition. I did not focus on the diagonal as composition element itself, but more on the contrasting elements...

Best regards,
Michael

I do have one more from the same place, but this is totally different:


I wanted to provoque some lensflares here...

There is also one photo I actually did convert to black&white. This was taken later the same day when we were higher up.


BTW: All were taken with the X10. I hope this gives an impression of the image quality of that little camera.

Best regards,
Michael
