April Foolishness: Pic 2

April 04, 2015  •  Leave a Comment



This is a scene from Lucas Creek, in Albany, Auckland.  It's a few minutes from where I work, so I made a diversion on the way to work to stop here.  I've used an ND3 grad to reduce the brightness of the sky in the top of the scene.  A Lee Big Stopper was used to slow the exposure.  

I did apply a light vignette to the edges to draw more attention to the waterfall.  In this case, the 20mm lens wasn't optimal for the scene.  It gives a very wide perspective, and I couldn't get closer to the waterfall.  I'd have preferred to make the waterfall a larger element of the photo.


Nonetheless, the challenge is to shoot this month with just one prime lens.
