Landscape Photography Show13,714*Landscape Photography Show #44: Horizon - Rules-of-Thirds* Some landscape photographs really appeal to us and others seem boring. Do you know why?  Your brain is being stimulated by composition, color, and contrast and it's all subconscious.  Your photos can be more interesting and appealing by knowing rules of composition and when to break those rules. Imagine two horizontal lines in your viewfinder that divides the space into three equal spaces.  Also imagine two vertical lines that also divide the view into thirds.  You now have a grid much like the tic-tac-toe game.  The four points where the lines intersect are called focal points.  We will have more about them later and also the vertical lines.  This event will focus on those horizontal lines. Study your landscape BEFORE you shoot.  In the viewfinder, place the horizon on one of those horizontal rule-of-thirds lines.  You will have 1/3 sky and 2/3 ground or 2/3 sky and 1/3 ground.  That composition is very pleasing to the viewer.  Having your horizon dead center is often boring and not interesting.   Horizons should be level!!  If you have sky and water, then having the horizon level is a MUST!!   If you have sky and ground, the "level" becomes more complicated.  If your horizon is very curvy with rolling hills for example, you won't have a level horizon and that's OK.  Your mind's eye knows that hills aren't level.  If your horizon is the boundary between sky and land and only a slight hill, you're mind's eye won't find it appealing when looking at the photograph of that view because the horizon isn't level.   You can trick your mind's eye by adding a vertical element to the composition that the viewer will "know" is vertical such as a tree.  You might put that vertical tree on one of those vertical rule-of-thirds lines.  Your mind knows that the tree is vertical and won't mind an unlevel horizon. Knowing when to break the rules is important too but make sure you have a good reason to break the basic rules of composition.  You might try getting added drama with 10-20% sky and 80-90% ground or vice versa.  Share your landscape photograph that displays a horizon using the horizontal rule-of-thirds.  In a comment on the photograph explain how you used this technique in your composition.  If you break the horizontal rule-of-thirds, tell us what you are trying to achieve.  Other participants will be discussing how you used this technique and asking you questions.  Please join the discussion on other photographs as well.  Feel free to leave comments and discuss on the main event as well. *General Rules:* 1) Your photo MUST be ORIGINAL.  If you post the work of someone else, you will be removed from the event. 2) *You MUST have complete EXIF data for your photo.  Within the event, select your photo and view it large.  Look for the "photo details" on the right.  It should be complete with the date the photo was taken, camera and lens information, ISO, f stop, speed etc.  Photos that don'tLPS Event #44: Horizon - Rule of Thirds2015-06-08 17:00:00568

Scott Jarvie445,818*POST YOUR GOOGLE+ ALBUM OF PICTURES* It's been very very popular event in the past and I'm finally doing it again tonight. _This time it will be more organized, more heads up than usual and even a live event._ *SHARE AN ALBUM/GALLERY LINK* It's simple and easy but a lot of work and very fun for all. You simply share an album here and I'll be going through every single one of the albums. Then I will +1 the pictures in the album that I'm really drawn to. *BENEFIT* Well it's simply if you'd love to know which pictures I like most.  I always loved knowing which pictures people really love of mine because it helps me have an eye for which pictures are best received. It's a huge part of becoming a better photographer in my opinion. _*To be able to put out great art is first to know what great art looks like*_ *ON AIR* This will be something new... I'm going to go through all the albums Live, Online as an On-Air hangout. I'll talk a little bit about what I'm doing. If the show goes well I'll keep it for later viewing on YouTube... if the recording isn't great I won't. *SPECIAL GUEST* Because I want to have an outloud conversation about what and why I'm doing things  I will have my good friend and great photographer @109486822103622036238 on the show to facilitate the discussion. She will also visit a lot of these albums and +1 pictures as well. We ask that everyone add her to a circle ... not just because she's awesome (though that's reason enough) but so that if any of these albums are by mistake limited access she will have access. *DIRECTIONS* 1. Paste a link of a Google+ image gallery 2. Put a title or description of what we'll see in the album 3.  *IMPORTANT* If you post a link you hereby give us permission to use a screenshare view of all those pictures and perhaps your profile in a recorded Youtube video. 4. Make sure the album is Public access 5. Add @100962871525684315897  @109486822103622036238 to your circles 6. Return the favor. Take some of the other people's albums and +1 some of your favorites. *IMPORTANT* It bears repeating: _If you post a link you hereby give us permission to use a screenshare view of all those pictures and your profile (maybe) in a recorded Youtube video._ Do not post a link if you are not ok with lots of people visiting that link in addition to us and are not ok with it being on video as well.Share your Album- A Jarvie PlusOne Critique Experience2012-09-12 05:30:00141

Merry Christmas

I want to wish everyone a very wonderful and blessed Christmas. I came across these words from the Christmas carol "It came upon a midnight clear" in the 3rd stanza and they struck me as very appropriate for our world and especially my country.

"And man, at war with man, hears not
The love song which they bring:
O hush the noise, ye men of strife,
And hear the angels sing."

So my request this Christmas season is for us all to stop our strife and hear the angles sing! :)

Merry Christmas!

The Beauty of Lilies

I'm definitely interested in critiques of this image as I don't totally love it. I bought flowers for my wife for Valentine's Day and the arrangement had these beautiful lilies along with red roses. The roses expired a while ago but the lilies are still beautiful. So this afternoon I pulled out the macro lens and tried some different perspectives. I didn't end up with anything great (guess my macro skills are a little rusty:) Still, a fun way to spend some time this afternoon. Have a great weekend!

Rushing

For me, this shot is all about the texture of the rushing river. The speed of the river and the 1/8 of sec shutter speed combine to really highlight how fast the water is moving.

I might have to experiment with this image in B&W. It took some work in post to get some detail and color in sky.

(I'm still processing images from last year as I haven't gotten out with my camera as much so far this year:)

Happy Wednesday!

A first time for everything

So today I decided I would drive over to the Maryland side of the Potomac river to view Great Falls from that side. I'd never been to the Maryland side and it was a good day for it. I contacted a friend about a few details before leaving and headed out the door around 3 for the 1 1/4hr drive. I had a few issues with Google Maps (which is really surprising) but arrived at the national park around 4:30pm. After paying the entrance fee, I parked the car and opened the back door to get out my camera and start my adventure. It's at that point that I received a very rude shock; NO CAMERA in the car... I'd left it at home. Argh!!!!! This is the first time I've ever left my camera behind on a photo excursion. So, I opened the "pro camera" app on my iPhone and made the best of it. Please pardon the water in this image as it's not up to my... more »

Please pardon the water in this image as it's not up to my normal standards.

One thing I like about the Maryland side is there are a number of side streams (this being one of them) with small waterfalls. It's definitely a place I want to go back WITH MY CAMERA :)

Purple Dawn

I shot this image last winter and a friend's son painted it for his AP Art class. The image could not be posted online until the AP Art portfolio was evaluated this past summer. In the class he got an A+ on the painting:) I love long exposures when the clouds are moving fast and you get those streaks.

It's definitely NOT winter here today; in the 60's and beautiful (though I do hope we get one good snow this winter:). I hope to make it to the Maryland side of Great Falls this afternoon and shoot the sunset. No guarantees there will be any color, but I'm looking forward to getting out with my camera:)

Have a great weekend!

Winter Whites

Well... this isn't the normal winter white we think of but with the lack of snow we've had in VA this year, something has to substitute:) This is another little water fall on that gorge/run I hiked near Hot Springs, VA. I love the texture of the moving water and it's blue color. On this hike I had to stay on the path so composition was limited. Regardless it was a very beautiful time out in God's beautiful creation.

Virginian Water Music

A small little run along the cascade gorge I hiked while in Hot Springs, VA last weekend. I like the texture from the bubbles in the water and of course the colors from rocks, moss and pure water.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Off the Beaten Path

Well... not literally... as I took this shot from the path:) This is the beginning of a beautiful little gorge/run near Hot Springs, VA. The stream is on private property and can only be visited as part of a guided tour that does not allow "leaving the path". My wife and I went away for the weekend and it was great to unplug and relax for a few days. I really enjoyed getting out with my camera and shooting some different scenery. Happy Monday!

Finding time this weekend to edit a few more photos (and even take some:). While the temps recently haven't been cold enough to shoot more frozen soap bubbles (what happened to winter?), I went back to my last "shoot" and found this one I liked.

Sandstone Falls, West Virginia

I can't believe it's been a week since I last posted an image. I feel a bit like I'm taking an unintentional break from shooting and editing though I don't know why. Maybe I'm feeling bored with all the normal, close-by locations and not really having the time to make a trip somewhere new. So while I work through my mojo issues... here is an image of Sandstone Falls in West Virginia. This shot is from August when I took a detour on the way home from dropping my son off at college. It's a place I definitely want to visit again.

Douglas Falls

I haven't been out much with my camera recently. Too busy to take any day trips and the winter hasn't cooperated with much snow or other interesting elements. So, here is a view of Douglas Falls found in the West Virginian Potomac Highlands taken this past fall. Hope you all have a great week!

Winter Warmth

This is my favorite soap bubble shot of the winter so far. We had a little snow on the ground and it was covering one of our landscaping timbers in the front garden. I like the way it helps form the backdrop.

Have a great day!

Rays of Warmth

Went up to Bears Den overlook on New Year's day as I thought there might be a nice sunset. While waiting for colors I tried a technique I've tried a few times... namely take one set of HDR images with my finger blocking the sun and then another set normally. What this produces is an image without lens flare (in the set with the finger blocking the sun) and an image with lens flare. Once the two sets of images are processed, you merge them together keeping the parts of the lens flare you want. Don't know if that makes sense or not:) Anyway, it's a fun technique and I'm happy with the way it came out for this image. Happy Tuesday!

And so it begins

This morning it finally got cold enough here in Virginia to shoot frozen soap bubbles, so before church I mixed up a new batch of solution, bundled up, and headed outside. It was a little windy which caused some issues and the solution was still "warm" which meant that initially it took a long time for the bubbles to start freezing. However, once I found a place a little sheltered from the wind, I was able to shoot a few and had a great time. For this image, I tried adding in a bit of texture into the background. Curious what you all think about that:) Have a great week and stay warm!

Year's first sunset

Decided to head up to Bears Den this afternoon as the clouds looked pretty good... and they were... until it got closer to sundown and the clouds got thick on the horizon and the light couldn't get through. No worries though, as it was a beautiful afternoon and I tried a couple of new things including this perspective/comp.

May your year be full of light and beauty!

Afternoon reflections

As I was shooting at Coolspring Battlefield this past week, a very small and brief snow/rain shower blew through. The squall cloud was highlit by the sun and I really like the reflection in the pond.

Old man sycamore

I decided to head back to Cool Spring Battlefield (the old golf course now owned by Shenandoah University) near Berryville, VA this afternoon as it looked like there might be both clouds and sun. While there I experienced a very brief and light rain/snow shower passing through. I was shooting reflections in one of the ponds when I turned around and saw this American Sycamore tree highlighted by the afternoon sun. I really like the long exposure effect from my 10stop ND filter. This image processed in #Lightroom and #on1photo10. Happy Thursday!

Watching Time Fly By

After the color was gone from the clouds the other day, I pulled out one of my ND filters and shot some long exposures. The clouds were moving fast so I didn't need a super long exposure; 30 seconds was enough to capture the streaking clouds.

It's been great to have a few days off work to be with family and reflect on this past year and prepare for the next. Even though the days have been busy, it's still been relaxing. As the new year approaches with its many challenges and "winds of change", I'm glad to have a fortress to run to and a friend that sticks closer than a brother. Happy Tuesday!

Merry Christmas

I want to wish everyone a very wonderful and blessed Christmas. I came across these words from the Christmas carol "It came upon a midnight clear" in the 3rd stanza and they struck me as very appropriate for our world and especially my country.

"And man, at war with man, hears not
The love song which they bring:
O hush the noise, ye men of strife,
And hear the angels sing."

So my request this Christmas season is for us all to stop our strife and hear the angles sing! :)

Merry Christmas!

Sunset glow

I ran over to an old golf course now owned by Shenandoah University. There are only a few days a year when the sun sets at the end of this pond. I was unfortunately a little late in leaving the house so just got the tail-end of the glow. The clouds were too low to get colored the normal way. This shot was taken just after the sun had dipped behind the horizon.

As we approach the Christmas holiday I pray your days are filled with joy and peace. Happy Christmas Eve Eve:)

Autumn Flowers

This morning I decided to play with the new #On1PhotoRaw editor bypassing my normal workflow of initial processing in Lightroom. There is a lot to learn about this new raw editor and it was fun to have some time to play. The masking capabilities with the perfect mask brush and the texture filter are great. I was able to make one mask of the flower and then use it (by inverting the mask) to apply the texture to only the background. It's definitely worth downloading the free trial and playing with it's features. There are tons of online video tutorials. As a bonus, the image resize feature is one of the best in the business (for when you want to make a very large print). And no, I'm not affiliated with #On1 in any way... just a happy customer:)

Roadside waterfall

As I was going back through images shot this year, I found this set of images taken at a road side waterfall found in West Virginia. Unfortunately, I can no longer tell you where:( I remember finding the location the evening after I took the image, but I didn't geo-tag the image at that time. Now I don't even remember what road I was on:)

I hope everyone is having a great week! Happy Wednesday!

Meandering toward Blackwater Falls

This is the Blackwater River looking downstream toward the main Blackwater Falls. There is a bridge the crosses the river on the way to Blackwater Falls lodge and I stopped a couple of times to shoot here back in Oct. +Sarah Hampton has a fantastic shot from this location. For this image I put on my 10stop ND filter and captured some movement in the clouds. Happy Friday!

There is a bridge the crosses the river on the way to Blackwater Falls lodge and I stopped a couple of times to shoot here back in Oct. +Sarah Hampton has a fantastic shot from this location. For this image I put on my 10stop ND filter and captured some movement in the clouds. Happy Friday!

Divided

Found this building while walking around St. Louis and really liked the different geometric patterns. Not my normal fare but a little change is always good:)

Positive thought for the day: Instead of being divided, let's be compassionate, kind, humble, gentle, patient, forgiving and long-suffering.

Happy Tuesday!

Thankful

Wednesday morning I was sitting in the family room checking email and generally getting ready for the day when my daughter says something to the effect of "Dad you need to check out the sunrise". So I turn around and sure enough the curtains are glowing orange. I grab my camera and run out the door adjusting the EV setting as I go. There was no time for a tripod so all images were handheld. It was one of the prettier sunrises I've seen in a long time. I'm so thankful I was able to witness it and also snap a few images. Have a great weekend!

Daybreak at Bear Rocks

I haven't had a lot of time to get out with my camera recently. In fact in the month of Nov I took fewer photos than in any month prior dating back to 2007 :)

For this photo I really like the sun breaking through the tree along with the rocks and the pool of water on the right. However, I'm not super happy my edit. If you have any comments/feedback I'm definitely interested. It feels a bit too orange to me. Maybe I'll try again on another day as I do like the general comp.

Happy Tuesday/Wednesday!

Manufactured

So yesterday there was an amazing sunrise where the sky blew up into these amazing pinks and of course I did not have my camera in the car. In addition, I was on my way to a morning meeting so didn't really have time to setup and shoot anyway. However, it did get the desire to go out and shoot flowing so this morning I grabbed my camera and headed out to see what the sunrise would be like.

It was very windy and cold so I thought... maybe I can use my 10 stop ND filter to get some cloud motion. Outside of the moving clouds, there wasn't a lot of color or dynamism. So I tried a couple of comps and headed back to the house.

Once there, I thought I'd try the new #On1 Photo Raw editor (in beta) and after merging five images of an HDR set I loaded a 32bit tiff into On1 Photo Raw. I played around for a while and got a result I liked so saved back to... more »

Once there, I thought I'd try the new #On1 Photo Raw editor (in beta) and after merging five images of an HDR set I loaded a 32bit tiff into On1 Photo Raw. I played around for a while and got a result I liked so saved back to Lightroom. When I pulled it up in Lightroom, I had "fake snow" in the deep shadow areas (probably some colorspace gamut bug between On1 Photo Raw and Lightroom). So I went and tried the 32bit tiff with #On1 Photo 10.5 and while I didn't get color gamut problems, I didn't get the colors the way I wanted.

Eventually, I punted on the 32bit HDR image, and went with a single raw and between Lightroom and On1 Photo 10.5 I got to this result. Now for the "Manufactured" part, there's really not a lot, I just took some liberties with colors in the sky to add more drama to the image.

If you've read this far... THANK YOU!!! Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Evening Views of Greens and Golds

This image is from late October taken at one of my favorite local locations; Bears Den on the Appalachian Trail. I know I haven't been very active here on G+ recently; lots of things going on. In this shot I like the light and details in the rocks and the highlighted yellows and golds of the trees extending out into the valley.

Happy Thursday!

Lone Tree Standing

I took some time this afternoon to edit photos I've taken this fall. It was great to spend a couple hours playing with images in Lightroom and On1 Photo 10. I loved the golden light as it filtered through the haze and caressed the valleys below Bear Rocks.

I will probably be hit or miss on G+ this week with kids coming home from college and all the preps for Thanksgiving. So I will wish all of you who will be celebrating Thanksgiving and very happy one!

Have a great week!

Autumn Rains

Well... in this case it was rain from hurricane Matthew back in October that raised the water levels in Shays Run in Blackwater Falls State Park.

I know I haven't been as active as in the past, and I'm not sure how things will go between now and Christmas. Hopefully I'll get some time for photography and can share some new images. In the meantime I'll probably post shots from the archive that haven't been shared before.

Lost in Reverie

I so enjoyed my visit to Bean Hollow Beach state park. There are some amazing intricate patterns etched by the water in the rocks. That combined with all the different views of waves and rocks make it a great place to shoot. Feel free to pause and imagine the waves crashing on the rocks and the wind blowing the salt air past your face:) Happy Monday!

Breathe

The past week, and this week as well, have been very hectic and at times stressful. I love the words of this song ("Breathe" by Jonny Diaz) and they really spoke to me in the midst of the craziness of life. Here is the chorus and a link to youtube. You can of course find the song on Apple, Google and Amazon music stores.

Breathe, just breathe
Come and rest at my feet
And be, just be
Chaos calls but all you really need
Is to just breathe

YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnjeMwxFuBA

As for the image, this was taken at Bean Hollow Beach state park. I love the way camera sensors capture the hints of color in fading light. Happy Wednesday!

We still have leaves on most of our trees though this tree had only a few left. Nothing like a clear day and afternoon sun to create glowing leaves. It was fun to have my macro lens back on my camera as I haven't used it in a while:) Happy Saturday!

Tell Your Heart to Beat Again

Dedicated to my daughter at college (and anyone else who needs it:)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azYK8I2uoog

You're shattered
Like you've never been before
The life you knew
In a thousand pieces on the floor
And words fall short in times like these
When this world drives you to your knees
You think you're never gonna get back
To the you that used to be

Tell your heart to beat again
Close your eyes and breathe it in
Let the shadows fall away
Step into the light of grace
Yesterday's a closing door
You don't live there anymore
Say goodbye to where you've been
And tell your heart to beat again

Beginning
Just let that word wash over you
It's alright now
Love's healing hands have pulled you through... more »

You're shattered
Like you've never been before
The life you knew
In a thousand pieces on the floor
And words fall short in times like these
When this world drives you to your knees
You think you're never gonna get back
To the you that used to be

Tell your heart to beat again
Close your eyes and breathe it in
Let the shadows fall away
Step into the light of grace
Yesterday's a closing door
You don't live there anymore
Say goodbye to where you've been
And tell your heart to beat again

Beginning
Just let that word wash over you
It's alright now
Love's healing hands have pulled you through
So get back up, take step one
Leave the darkness, feel the sun
'Cause your story's far from over
And your journey's just begun

Tell your heart to beat again
Close your eyes and breathe it in
Let the shadows fall away
Step into the light of grace
Yesterday's a closing door
You don't live there anymore
Say goodbye to where you've been
And tell your heart to beat again

Let every heartbreak
And every scar
Be a picture that reminds you
Who has carried you this far
'Cause love sees farther than you ever could
In this moment heaven's working
Everything for your good

Tell your heart to beat again
Close your eyes and breathe it in
Let the shadows fall away
Step into the light of grace
Yesterday's a closing door
You don't live there anymore
Say goodbye to where you've been
And tell your heart to beat again
Your heart to beat again
Beat again

Oh, so tell your heart to beat again

Tranquility

I really enjoyed my visit to Bean Hollow Beach State Park just south of Pescadero on the Pacific Coast Highway. There are so many rocks where the water has created these intricate designs. The tide was low during my visit so most of the rocks were exposed. I had a great time scrambling around on the rocks and eventually making my way back up to the top of the bluff.

My only regret from the visit is that I accidentally set my camera to Auto ISO so while I was shooting HDR sets, the ISO changed with every exposure in the bracket causing some of the images to be shot at 3200 ISO :( Thankfully between Lightroom's good noise reduction and the fact that I had 5 images in the bracket set to combine, I was able to get a decent final result. May your shooting be void of mishaps like mine:) Happy Tuesday!

My only regret from the visit is that I accidentally set my camera to Auto ISO so while I was shooting HDR sets, the ISO changed with every exposure in the bracket causing some of the images to be shot at 3200 ISO :( Thankfully between Lightroom's good noise reduction and the fact that I had 5 images in the bracket set to combine, I was able to get a decent final result. May your shooting be void of mishaps like mine:) Happy Tuesday!

Broken Surf

This past week I was out in California for work and after the last meeting on Friday I headed for the coast. I decided to shoot at Bean Hollow Beach State Park which I'd passed on a few previous trips up and down the PCH. When I arrived it was close to low tide and I started exploring around the rocks. As you can see from the sky, a sunset was out of the question, but that didn't stop the warm light and some subtle colors as evening fell. I like this shot as you can see up the rocky coast and because of the texture in the water in the foreground. I did have a photographic mis-adventure on this trip in that somehow shortly after this shot I set my camera on Auto ISO instead of 50 ISO and most all of the rest of my shots were at ridiculous ISO values. Thankfully I was shooting bracketed exposures and so with some Lightroom noise reduction I was able to recover a number of... more »

I'll be posting them over the next little bit:) Have a wonderful week!

Autumn Illumination

I just have time for a quick post before catching a plane back home. This is from last weekend up at Bears Den on the Appalachian Trail near Bluemont, VA. Golden, streaming light enhanced:)

Have a great weekend!

Bursting Through

Hiked up to Bears Den overlook on the Appalachian Trail this afternoon as I won't be able to visit again for a while. While normally the trees would be in full color it seems this year everywhere is a few weeks late so there still might be some color when I can visit again:) So even though there wasn't a lot of color, there were some amazing light rays through the afternoon. The major factor (as can be seen in the foreground of this image) was the wind and cold. I was so glad to have sweatshirt, jacket, and gloves:) Have a wonderful week!

Looking Back

This is Sandstone Falls near Beckley, WV taken in late August of this year. This was my first every visit to Sandstone Falls and it's quite impressive. The river is so wide at this location. That said, I struggled to find comps I really liked. This one grew on me after sitting in the photo backlog for a while:) Happy Wednesday!

Elekala #3 on Shays Run

This past weekend I visited the third waterfall on Shays Run in Blackwater Falls State park for the first time. It is a bit of a scramble down the hillside to get to this waterfall and climbing out on the rocks was a bit scary. I decided not to push my luck trying to get to a location on a wet rock in the middle of the stream and instead shot from a slightly safer location:) I hope you enjoy this beautiful waterfall! Have a great week!

Illuminating Warmth

I was up in the Bear Rocks Preserve of Dolly Sods Thursday morning in the brisk fall air as the pre-dawn glow enveloped the rocks and blueberry bushes in it's warming light. I love it every time I can visit this special location in West Virginia. The wild and stark beauty sinks into your soul and you can't help but pause drink it all in. I am constantly amazed by the beauty of God's creation. Happy Monday!

Douglas Falls

It's been a long time since the down stream comps for Douglas Falls have been available and that's thanks to Brian Peterman. There had been a tree, blown down during super storm Sandy, that completely blocked these comps. Now that's down (visible in the stream) it was great to shot this fall again.

This was my 4th waterfall today and I was tired. So I grabbed a few different shots and headed back to the cabin where I am staying. I hope you like this beautiful waterfall in Tucker County, West Virginia.
