Re: walk along the river

thanks for the comments; really appreciated seeing I'm offering very little myself. Yep, the murray river just above the weir and this level would be considered medium flood level before the locks and weirs were built. Might look like still water however the amount water flowing down stream is amazing and has caught many swimmers out.

Both photos taken with the little 20 mm Pana. 1st one is about 2/3 of the original file and bottom one is cropped top+bottom. Both edited totally in LR5. Quality is more to do with the 'just after sunrise' light than anything IMO; maybe a bit of experience also but very much a stand and click photo. Well sort of stand and click but that's where experience comes in. As I read somewhere; the best camera point is usually not where we first plant our feet or tripod.

Strange how reading something like that made me realise how true it is and how much I do move just a bit up/down/back/forward before clicking; or moved after I click to think how much better this new spot is.

Another thing I feel is often important is to identify the part of the scene/subject that attracted our attention in the first place. Once identified we can consider a different (longer) lens or how we might make the part stand out with editing. In the 1st one, which is one of 3 clicks, it was the rowers. A longer lens would have been great but I had to made do with some cropping and dodging PP to have them stand out more.

The original file with my basic edit preset and LR B+W (v). If I left it colour you would all likely say colour is best lol

Yeah yeah; gotta fix that signature ....... bit of stuff up while tidying up the h/drive


Back on the river: in dry times like now it was very possible walk across the river in many places before the locks and weirs were put in.
