Approaching Dawes Glacier by Joey Johnson

August 2022 - Approaching Dawes Glacier

About the Image(s)

Had the privilege of being on a "ferry sized" boat going down the Endicott Arm out of Juneau. The larger ships were not able to go too far into the arm due to ice bergs but we got within about a quarter mile, which is pretty close. The views were amazing and this image is just one of many that shows the landscape as well as the glacier. Sony a7rIV camera, Tamron 28-70 lens, 1/500 at f11. Some post processing in Lightroom and Photoshop.

This is so lovely to look at I just wanted to play around in it for a bit. Joey's is just as good. Brought out some detail in the hills. Cropped off some on the right to accentuate the main mountain. Added a vignette to tame down the very plain sky.   Posted: 08/04/2022 17:54:13

Sol's comments and revised photo added to your good image. The enhancement of the green in the hills added a lot. Nice capture of ice bergs.   Posted: 08/11/2022 17:41:48

Reminded me of my own trip to Alaska. Lovely photo. I might lighten the mountain on the left to bring out more detail.   Posted: 08/12/2022 13:33:45

Gorgeous photo Joey!

I like Sharon's comment on opening up the shadows a bit on the Mt. and Sol's rendition did well with the green water, brought it to life.
I like your natural sky.

I really like the low angle that you were able to achieve from the boat you were on. It is a beautiful sight. To go along with some other comments, I was thinking that it might have used a slight amount more exposure. The Histogram does show clipping of the Blacks.

It doesn't make as much difference in a scene like this, but it tilts down slightly to the left. I tried straightening according to the line where the water disappears, in the background, to the right.   Posted: 08/17/2022 15:07:55

I have a tendency to tilt whenever I am doing landscape. Fortunately it is very easy to straighten things out.   Posted: 08/17/2022 15:38:46

It was easy to miss since the water is tipping toward the gap in the background. I tend to do that too but I be doing better since I have grid showing in my viewfinder.   Posted: 08/17/2022 16:37:22
