Moods for the Misbegotten

Sunset With Trees

When I was in Alaska recently, I decided to try panning blur landscape shots, with  little success. I think my shutter speed was too fast. This is the only shot I really liked. The sun was low on the horizon behind a grove of birch and fir trees. The first image is out of the camera, with some cropping, and gives a sense of the actual lighting. The second version of the image is colder, the third is warmer. Do you have a preference?

Fantastic past, Marie! I love that you presented them as a tryptic of sorts … isn’t it striking to see how the color temperature affects the mood of the image? And the image itself is gorgeous too. Nicely done!

Hmm… you don’t know how much time I’ve spent looking at these photos. I, actually, like the first one best. I kept asking myself: “Are you sure? Don’t you want more contrast?” And every time, I picked #1. (I also like the other, but I like #1 best 😉
Have a wonderful day.

#1 is my favorite as well. I guess we always assume a shot will look better if we do some processing but #1 has only the basic lens profile adjustment and chromatic aberration removal. I like the softness of the colors and outlines. Hope all is well.

Great artistry! I like the first one best. I see a rainy day with some warm and inviting lights in the background that I am going to hurry to for some hot chocolate (might be inspired by the current rainy weather here in Southern California). 🙂
