My first post

Some Photos from Today at Aira Force in the Lake District.
Hope they work as I have no experience of this forum skin.








Good Shooting

Steve

Hi Steve - welcome to the site!

I love the water-directional effects you have achieved in the first two shots in particular.

Ian

Re: My first post

Hi Ian thanks for your comments.
I had a problem, I bought a new case for my filters the other week, Then left the darn thing at home. So I had to use f16 -f22 to blur the water. Its only my second time out with the 11-22 and I think after f11 diffraction takes hold.
I hope to try again sometime soon.

Good Shooting

Steve

Great photos, I like the water effects as well, and I really want that lens! Wish the Lakes weren't so far away.

Very impressive, especially if done without the aid of a ND filter

You have to love this time of year for the colours - the fallen leaves make these photos so much more appealing to the eye.

Ian.

Re: My first post

Its not my first time at this location I have shot here before with the 14-54.
But yes its only my second time out with the 11-22.

I went to Castlerigg Stone circle the other week with it and came away with these 2 panos.





I got this one also. unfortunately my tripod was not high enough to get more of a view over the wall.



Good Shooting

Steve

Re: My first post

Should say I did use my polarizer at aira falls. It was the only filter I had with me. I prefer to use a holster style bag and you cant get a lot of filters in those.
I have now tied my tilter bag to the camera bag so I wont forget them again

Good Shooting

Steve

Hi Steve -

No. 3 at Aira falls I like very much. Where the leaves fell on the rock in the water makes it look like a crocodile with a shortened snout.

Beautiful - I love the way you've captured the eddies in the 2nd photo.
