    Canal du Midi

    Here's a shot taken last Autumn on the Canal du Midi, Panasonic Lumix LX3, 1/80 @ F4 24mm equiv. Comments welcome.

    Traveling the canal is a great way to see southern France, from a slow, unique perspective. Especially if you like food, and wine !

    I do. I do.

    Am finding that one a bit dark, Jeff. What about dodging the part of the bank in shade closest to us just to bring up a bit more detail?

    Sadly, its just noise, it was the last of the light, and a small sensor camera. Here's a few more from the same series which may be better ...

    Hi Jeff,
    I really like the first one posted in terms of light. Love the rim lighting on the trees. Not totally sure about the crop. It's a really good picture, but I feel that it could be great with a slightly different crop. Unfortunately that's as far as my brain has got. I can see there's something there, but I don't know what..

    Thanks for the response, glad you see what I saw when I took the shot ... As to the crop I use the 1x1 format a lot, I like it, but its a subjective thing ...
