Autumn Boardwalk by Lamar Nix

December 2019 - Autumn Boardwalk

About the Image(s)

This was a scene of a boardwalk over a marshy wetlands area. The colorful trees in the distance hosted a group who was taking photos, and the lines of the boardwalk seemed to frame a pretty decent composition. I backed up just enough to get the full height of the one tree into the frame.

This was taken with an I-phone XR, which continues to impress me with its ability to take impressive images of every-day subjects without much participation from the operator! It reports that it was set for this one at f/1.8, 1/125 sec, at 26mm focal length (35 mm equiv.), at ISO 32. It required little adjustment, but I did tweak constrast slightly in Photoshop CS6.

Lamar, this is a wonderful autumn(Fall) scene. There is a nice balance between the bright autumn colours and the darker foreground. The people add to the story and add perspective to the scene. The walkway with its railings leads the viewer into the scene. The only suggestion is trying a little lens correction to straighten the walkway. I was distracted by the little yellow sign at first but realised it adds to the story and emphasised the fact that the walkway is really curved as it passes through the forest. A thoughtful image having me ask, " What is further on? " Cheers Glenn   Posted: 12/06/2019 19:37:01
