|Canon 60D, Tamron 17-50mm, f25, ISO100, 8s, 17mm|
This is the same log in The Mississippi River posted in ‘Into The Drink‘, but the angle is a bit different, the camera in portrait mode rather than landscape and a black and white conversion rather than color. Even being the same environment, these changes in the picture yield a much different feel and mood.
Changing the camera angle and orientation really brings more of the bank into play, which does two things: 1) anchor the foreground, and 2) allow the natural leading lines to move you ahead in the image. I really love those little leaves in the foreground right – they add a colder, more isolated feel, at least in my eyes. The highlights in the sky are a bit overpowering, but I still like it. what do you think?
