Silves, Algarve - Portugal
Last week end we drove to the south of Portugal to meet someone who would drive us in the wilderness of the mountains of Silves, Algarve.
We got up early in the morning because we were supposed to see animals like dears, wilde pigs, birds and others, inside a hunting reserve.
I was going to hunt animals but with my camera and lenses
Some landscapes were also expected to be found.
This week end is now - for me - a start point to crop my pictures differently.
Until now, I always cropped my pictures with a standard size, but - looking at the landscapes themselves - I quickly came to the conclusion that I could not keep a certain size - whichever it was - and make nice and beautiful framed pictures.
I post here the "original" picture. The one where I have not applied any "treatment" and the one I have cropped and "treat" or worked on.
I would like to read some opinions about this picture. I thank you for that.
However, I want to give up to temptation and I post one which I see as one of the best.
Shot early in the morning with the 20D + 70-200 at 200mm. I was looking for that smash - or whatever you want to call it - tele-lens effect. 200*1,6 = 320 mm. I could do better with the multiplier but ...
The use of this lens - I was cradling the 5D and the 20D on my lap all the time - made me look under a different perspective at the landscape.
I am not going to bother you with more pictures I shot but I was very happy with the results.
Was I right ?
The scale in these pictures are the trees which can be seen far, far away. Lightroom work. I like this prog !
