Iceberg by Ling Ling Juang

September 2023 - Iceberg

About the Image(s)

In a foggy cold early morning, we embarked on a small boat to see icebergs near Nanotalic Greenland. I was feeling hopeless to see anything in the thick fog. Gradually we start to see many icebergs which were like monsters in a dreamland. Here is one of them. 24mm, f8.0, 1/1000.

Hi, this is a beautiful photograph that you must be so very proud of! You haven't sent the original image, is there anything on the right side that you can add as the iceberg is cropped off a tiny bit. I would put this through Topaz denoise which may do something to the radiating lines in the sky. There is so much detail in the actual iceberg and denoise may help there too. So very well done. I hope you clear a space on your wall for this one!   Posted: 09/10/2023 20:56:01

Thanks, Julie,
The truth is I was on a boat that not only moved but also rocked when I took the picture. I had to crop the picture to keep it straight, so goes the right side of the picture. I did follow your suggestion to denoise the sky, but didn't change much.   Posted: 09/11/2023 00:15:28

I wonder if a slightly wider view would be preferable.   Posted: 09/15/2023 15:33:05

Hi Ling Ling. I really love this, it is so different from what you usually see with icebergs. A unique capture. You could add some space on the right so it did not tough, but really nice.   Posted: 09/18/2023 11:47:32

Hey Ling Ling, Julie is correct, you should be very proud of this shot. With the new version of Photoshop, you could add to the right if you wanted. Here we go down the A.I. Rabbit Hole. In my opinion, the glare on the left side on the water could be toned down a little, but I don't think I would mess around with this shot. I would just print it. if you do print it, my suggestion is that you over sharpen it, for the printing. Trust me.   Posted: 09/18/2023 19:11:51

Thanks, Don. I usually don't print my photons, but let me take your suggestions and tried it out.   Posted: 09/18/2023 21:43:54

Ling, Ling, for a thick foggy day, you captured a wonderful image of an iceberg. If you increased the contrast, you would lose the feeling of the day and the hazy sun. If you tried cropping, it would be too tight. I think you have ended with a perfect image to show the day. Congratulations.   Posted: 09/22/2023 14:59:04
