Still have two trips to Amsterdam coming up this month, but I quite liked this image from the vacation I returned home from this week. Very relaxing to cycle through the woods for three days. Snapped this over my shoulder while cycling, so I had no idea how it would turn out.

Lens and focal length: 24mm
Aperture: f/2
Shutter Speed: 1/50th

One of the multiple shots I took this summer, I was shooting both on single-shot mode and manual focusing, I just didn't trust my camera, so I have a lot of nicely composed images but that are out of focus or vice versa. It was pretty much hit-and-miss.

ABSTRACT

Postby mikeroch » Wed Aug 21, 2013 7:42 am

ABSTRACT.

I thought rather than trying to photograph something actually moving I'd try and capture the sensation of movement. This shot was one of many taken by moving the camera across various subjects while releasing the shutter on a slow speed. This is the best of the bunch taken of sunlight coming through gaps in wooden decking and makes me think of sheets of paper sliding and falling

Pentax K20D. ISO100. Neutral density filter, 1/4sec @ f.11 18-55mm lens.
PP: Crop, rotate, adjust brightness, increase contrast

Went to Chanonry Point on the Moray Firth (Scotland) to photograph dolphins leaping... but they didn't show up.
This guy walking his dogs did though. Pity they were not facing the camera.
