Frozen Pond by Pierre Williot

December 2019 - Frozen Pond

About the Image(s)

Equipment: Panasonic Lumix DC-G9, Leica DG 12-60 f/2.8-4.0, Hand held

Setting: ISO 400, 12 mm (24 mm full frame equivalent), f/10, variable speeds (see below), Adjustments in LightRoom.
The capture was performed with a pano of bracketed images: 5 images per frame (-2, -1, 0, +1, +2) X pano of 8 frames = 40 images.
I realized that there was some mouvement artefacts at the level of the small branches due to the light wind.
Instead of using all the images, I selected a pano of 8 images using the best histograms per frame (trying not to over expose). I end up selecting 3 frames at 1/400 sec, 3 frames at 1/250 sec and 2 frames at 1/320 sec due to the differences in lighting.

I was attracted by the calmness of this end of fall scenery: frozen pond, blurred mirror image of the barren trees.

Hi Pierre. You have certainly captured a peaceful scene. We very rarely see this environment in Aus. Like the lines that the branches make as they reach up and out of the image.The little brown twig at the bottom is a little distracting and could be easily removed. Your image is close to a mono image and this would be my only suggestion but you do lose the nice blue. You have achieved what you set out to do. Cheers Glenn   Posted: 12/11/2019 18:00:27

Hi Glen,
Thanks for your nice comments. One could be also creative by decrease the saturation of all the colors except for the blue!   Posted: 12/14/2019 11:37:46
