"Winter Urban Landscape"


Traverse City, US
          

We had our first heavy snow the other night and looking out my living room window I really liked the light and colors created by the parking lot lights and the buildings next door. I waited for the subject walking to leave some tracks in the snow and ended up with this picture. Shot with my D800E and Nikon 24-120 handheld at 1600 ISO F4 at 1/8th. I like the way the 800E handled the high ISO and the detail it captures with this type of subject.

Excellent composition, the footprints and man walking make a great addition! Nice job on exposure.

You are giving me a terrible case of D800 envy.

This would make an interesting B/W conversion.

Thanks Diane

I took a bunch of shots of people walking thru the snow to and from the buildings but liked this one best. For me, it's all the motion taking place inside the still frame...the tracks leading thru the property from the cars, the snow pouring down from the sky and of course my subject walking into the parking lot thru fresh snow...Plus, the light here was just unique and the 800E handled it well. You'll really enjoy one if you decide to buy one one of these days.. it really is a great piece of engineering.

Excellent, Pol!

The footprints and the fuzzy walker make the image!

Only nit: you seem to have shot it looking downwards - quite logically, I must add, but the keystoning effect seems to be uneven between the right and the left of the image. Have you tried rotating it to the left a tiny bit?

Thanks for sharing anyway!

Nice job Peter. Impressive ISO performance as you say. Just to repeat the others... the walker gives it the finishing touch.
The keystoning Olivier refers to may be hard to fix I suspect.

Thanks Rob

I really liked the architecture here and the way they have the street lights lined up along the edge of the parking lot. I've shot this place many times in different weather and times of day. All I have to do is open the curtains and point the camera... each day is a little different the light changes dramatically depending on the weather.

WIth the software available today and especially the tools in CS6 getting the buildings straight shouldn't be too difficult. I just have to learn how to use it properly. The adaptive wide angle filter was designed for just such shots.

Thanks Olivier

I looked at the final shot for quite a while and because the lights near the subject and the subject are both almost perfectly vertical I left it alone. However, the wide angle adaptive filter in CS6 should help take care of the keystone issue. I haven't used it for anything other than just practice...but it works well. Once I get a good feel for it I'll test it on this shot and repost. Thanks for the input.

Peter

I took the liberty to have a quick go at it in CS3: tranformation to rotate it, then perspective, then transformation to try and come back to more original proportions - not pushed the exercise to its limits, though, the car in the foreground is now much more compact than in the original image



Of course, I have lost quite a bit of substance in the process, but on his original, Pol has enough megapixels to keep something quite printable!

Cheerio,

Olivier Rychner

Hey Olivier,

Im going to work with the "adaptive wide angle filter" tool in CS6 on this and see how it works. From the tutorial it's very easy to use. I'll work on it a bit and see what I can do. Appreciate the input..

Peter

This is one of those great captures that happens on the spur of the moment and for which we should always look out. Great image!

The D800 also does a good job like you mentioned.......uh oh....NAS......

Thanks Richard

This is why I always have a camera nearby with a fresh battery. The region around Orem is one of the best spots I've been for photography. We're expecting another winter storm tonight so fresh snow to check out along the rivers and open range tomorrow.

cheers

Peter

Really nice to look at on many levels. I especially like the luminosity. Nicely composed too!

It was a real eye grabber the minute I pulled the shade open and saw what was going on outside with the firs snowfall. This is just a small part of the complex and there's always activity here...but the snow and the way the place is lighted really created a nice atmosphere.

cheers
Peter

I've shot the surrounding grounds a bunch of times during different kinds of weather and included the mountains you can see both east and west from here. Always something new to see depending on the weather.

This is one of my favorite "spur of the moment" photos. Just opened the blinds to see this unfolding and grabbed the D800E and started shooting.

Appreciate the comments
