Undecided

 

Undecided - (c) 2015 Gerard Blacklock

D750 coupled with 16-35mm f4 @ 18mm Aperture: f/18and Shutter Speed: 1s
ISO: 100
out front – Lee Graduated Filter (0.9x) and a polariser (HOYA screw in)

I could not actually decide which I liked the most – hence when in doubt, just throw it all in 🙂 well in this case into a triptych.
I think its also a good example of how water movement and flow in a scene can change the overall feel look of the image. There was no change in the shutter speed, just in the timing of when to take the frame.

Can you pick which way the water is going in each frame? (in or out) which looks better? I typically find that taking the frame with the water flowing out seems to give better lines – this is not a hard and fast rule tho. Another important benefit of using the outflow is that your not crapping yourself when the big swamper comes thru and you got your eye plastered in the viewfinder trying to get that sweet frame and then blam 😉

Exif/setup love:

  1. Love the Triptych mate! I'd have to say the pic on the left is my fav for the sweet curvy lines the receding waves created. I love the approaching wave in the distance in shot 3 though! I guess you can't have it both ways, either the receding water or the nice wave shape! +Gerard Blacklock It's an enviable dilemma, having 3 great shots to choose between! 🙂

  2. Okay, why hadn't I thought about shooting the outward flow before?! What you said makes perfect sense! D'oh!
    The triptych is an excellent idea and looks really impressive, but I also am fascinated by the movement in the LH image if I had to pick only one.
