    Re: Wind

    Hi Antonio,
    nice to meet you here again

    this is a very beautiful picture!
    I like the contrast between the swinging trees and steady buildings, and I like the "ghost" of the cloud! if only it were not so centered...
    and perhaps a wider view to see the whole taller palm ...
    thanks for sharing!
    ciao
    Nicola

    PS shutter speed? please..

    Re: Wind

    Not sure it quite works for me Antonio... I absolutely love the stars and i love the clarity and exposure of the buildings. If you took the same shot on a still night and had motionless trees and foliage then I think it would work out better, for me at least. I find them a bit too distracting, and especially the cloud.

    Nice idea though

    Re: Wind

    Hi Antonio,

    Nice idea, but I agree that the clouds spoil it for me.

    There might also be some lens or perspective distortion to deal with looking at the buildings and (momentarily) ignoring the palms.

    Inspirational idea though, nice tones too,

    Re: Wind

    Hi Antonio, for me, it is difficult to focus on this image because there are soo many layers to it. The plants in the right foreground, the trees on the left foreground, the buildings, the tree behind, the stars... They all seem to exist at different depths and I find my eyes moving front to back to front etc... I really like the b&w contrast though.

    Cheers, John.

    Re: Wind

    For mine - I like it. Well done. It gives me something different to the stock standard night photo which is why I like it.

    I would tend to agree on the cloud in the middle though, it is just a little bit too much of a distraction but apart from that great image.

    Where the camera was I couldn't see what I was capturing. However, that is not an excuse as I could have repeated the photograph.
    I asked the cloud to wait but she couldn't as the trafic was intense she said.

    Perhaps you are right about the cloud. I was impressed by the heavy wind blowing on the palm and coconut trees.

    Distortion... huumm perhaps. Oh what the heck ! Does it really matters here ? Don't think so.
    Indeed the photo was done with 16mm on the 5D so it is a real 16mm

    Great if the image is too confusing. Great because it shows how strong the wind was !

    Oh the cloud... I do have more 2 or 3 images under a different perspective. The clouds were rather fast - it is no excuse I know - and they were very scattered.

    Well, if the architect says it doesn't matter, who am I to argue?

    Re: Wind

    To be fair, the more I look at it the more I like it. It does have an almost CGI feel about it... ...strange... ...but good

    Indeed it is a one frame. Want to see it just for fun ?
    OK Just a second please.
    While it uploads here is the EXIF
    http://www.antoniocorreia.com/photos...ageKey=hCPvNwm

    Wind

    The camera was sitting on a balcony where there was no wind. I blocked it's mirror and used the timer. No. Not true.
    I took the - what is the name for that thing ? - cable and with out touching the camera I made the photograph. You do understand don't you ?

    I made two or 3 all with 30".
    Then here, at home I used the expensive Nik Software Plugin Silkver Efex Pro 2. I adjusted a filter, and worked a bit with masks.

    That's it

    Before posting I always read what takes me longer to answer.
    I forgot to say that I cloned two or 3 white spots.
    Before coming home I wanted to re-shoot with more than 30" with a smaller aperture. But I forgot to do so. :'(

    As thought provoking as ever, Antonio. Thanks.
