Image of the Week ( W/C 20th September 2021)
This image taken in June this year, I was sitting watching TV and the light outside the livingroom window was screaming for me to take a look, I grabbed my D2X that was fitted with a 28-70 Tokina lens, walked to a field at the end of the road and was greeted with the last gasps of Summer Sun.
Its fair to say the result is heavily influenced in post processing, pulling hard on the HDR adjustment , focusing on colour and tones with a soft effect . I do like this image so much so a posted in EYE CANDY.
When taking the image I set the focal lenth at 70mm to pull the long foreground grass in tighter and despite not being an ideal for landscape this tight view did work
Setting 70mm, F4.5, 1/30thSec, 100 ISO

Last weeks top images really appeals to me on a number of levels, the strong leading line to the walkers, the constrast of the colours with the pink coat shouting out from the greens and browns.
Not the first time on the site I converted it to a painting and presented the photo as an abstract.
Taken at Taf Bargoed park, Trelewis in the early Spring as the Covid travel restrictions was lifting, I used a 100% manual lens a Tokina SZ-X 28-105 mm, (See Blog 24th August bottom of the page) . Sometimes I need to stray from my go to lens to remind myself how good aged lens are.
Taken with Nikon D2X settings 70mm, F5.6, 1/200thSec and 100 ISO

For the 3rd week on the bounce an Image from my trip to Rhigos Mountain takes top slot. Lots in this photo to check out, from the wind turbine standing like a sentinel , to the drama in the sky with clouds and Sun competeing for attention. Those clouds had just delivered a snow flurry heading towards the Rhondda to deposit more
Taken with a Nikon D3200 partnered with a Tamron 24-10mm Lens settings 15mm,F9, 1/200thSec and 200ISO

Black and white image always attract a lot of attention, for this image a soft zoom effect has been added in processing creating an abstract view and emphasising the main subject , the footbridge.
Bridge is situated in Pontcanna fields Cardiff, and cross's the River Taff. see map for directions , well worth a visit.
