Landscape Photography Show12,954*Landscape Photography Show #46: Power Points* In the last two events, we explored the horizontal and vertical rule of thirds lines and how they divide your frame into 9 equal parts.  It's always great to set a horizon on the lower or upper horizontal line.  It's also good to place a strong element along one of the vertical rule of thirds lines. This event will focus on where the two vertical and horizontal rule of thirds lines intersect.  We call those Power Points.  There are 4 of them: upper left, upper right, lower left, and lower right. Placing a strong element at one of the Power Points can really improve the composition, drama, and power of your photograph.  Examples:  the single red leaf on a green tree; the eye of anything wildlife, and the setting sun on the horizon.    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. Power Points are what we want practice with this event.  Show us something special place at one of the intersection points of those vertical and horizontal lines.   1.  Share your landscape photograph that displays something special at one of the Power Points.       2.  In a comment on the photograph tell us which Power Point you used: upper left, upper right, lower left, or lower right.  Explain how you used this technique in your composition.  If you break the Power Point rules, tell us why.  Also give us some information about the location and any challenges that you faced.  We want to know the details about your photograph. 3.  Other participants will be discussing how you used this technique and asking you questions.  Please join the discussion on other photographs as well. 4.  This event is all about PARTICIPATION and DISCUSSION.  Please don't post a photo and leave.  The LPS reserves the right to remove photos without your comment.    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't have complete EXIF data will be removed.  Others will learn from seeing what you have done. 3) Only ONE photograph per person is allowed.  If you submit more than one photo, all of your photos will be removed. 4) Circle the @114888971165518552849 page. 5) Photos must be posted no later than Monday, July 13, 2015, 10 am CDT.  Those posted after that time will be removed. 6) Curator favorites will be shared to the @105588730866970114510 theme page.  Circle the curators and engage them in conversation.  You will learn lots from them!! 7) CuratLPS Event #46: Power Points2015-07-06 17:00:00350

Mystical

This is Snoqualmie Falls, Snoqualmie, WA. I took a drive over hoping for a dramatic sunset sky, but the mist was completely hiding the sky. However, I love how the sun was shining on the mist, creating this beautiful amber glow, with a hint of a rainbow. For anyone familiar with this waterfall, there is a resort on the upper left hand side, and power buildings behind the waterfall on the right side. I really like that the mist is hiding all of those man made structures...it almost gives you a sense of what the Snoqualmie Indian Tribe experienced before all of the intrusions.

Just a seagull, I know, but he/she was hanging on the deck of my motel room for my birthday cuppa coffee. Here I had the beautiful view of First Beach in LaPush, WA, and I was focusing my camera on this one. :)

The only decent shot I got of the whales feeding off of First Beach in LaPush, Washington this past weekend. I am reasonably sure this is a Grey Whale, but please let me know if you know differently. I took this from shore with my 70-300mm, so they were pretty close. :)

Thank you so much for all of the birthday wishes! I had a wonderful birthday weekend on the Washington Coast. We stayed at the Quileute Ocean Resort on the Quileute Indian Reservation in LaPush, Washington. It was beautiful and sunny all weekend, which is amazing considering it is one of the rainiest places in the United States. This is First Beach at sunrise, and was the view from my room...not too hard to take, eh? :)

Oh, and I was able to watch Grey Whales feeding just off of shore Saturday afternoon, and Sunday morning. I only got one decent shot of a tail, but it was fun watching them nonetheless.

Thanks again for all of your thoughtfulness!

Well, I have updated my 365 Project folder. I am not quite caught up, but almost. This is one of my favorite shots from the month of March. I actually used my tripod for this macro shot...had some golden hour light shining on the Sand Dollar, and a little bit of incoming tide swirling around it. Sometimes, everything does come together. :)

I have updated my 365 Project album, and thought I would share what I have so far. I am getting ideas from http://captureyour365.com. Some photos are very loose interpretations, and I also allow myself three wildcards per month to replace subjects I just can't relate to. Rather than trying to force myself to take a photo each day, and posting photos that don't have a certain level of creativity or quality, I am taking photos when I can, and posting when I can, and using the list as a tool for inspiring subject matter. Hope you enjoy, and feel free to comment with suggestions for any of the photos...critiques always welcome.

#14/365 - Pop of Color

I took a stroll through Nisqually NWR near Olympia, WA today. It was 60 degrees outside, which is how I like January.  I could hear the frogs croaking, but had a hard time finding them at first. That's because they were hiding in the leaves on the ground.

This surfer at Ocean Shores, Washington met the criteria for three of my topics. The water temperature is around 49 degrees, so I'd say that is commitment. :)

I am doing a #365 Project this year, but playing by my own rules. I can't always get out every day, so will shoot as often as I can, and post when I can following a list of suggested topics for each month.

I have been working on improving my color to black and white conversions. I would love to know what you think about this photo. Thanks for looking!

Say hello, to my little friend...I did my own Photo Walk, but did it on Friday since I knew it was going to rainy for the actual day (yesterday). This was taken at Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge in Washington. I could hear these guys croaking, and followed the sound. These are Pacific Tree Frogs, and they are very tiny, so you have to look very closely for them. Once my eyes adjusted, I found quite a few of them, and they were kind enough to let me get up close and personal.

Have a great Sunday!

Starting to get into the Autumn mode. This is one of my "watercolors" from last Autumn near Nobelboro, Maine. Beautiful old tree reflected in water and rotated. I love the painterly look that water reflections can provide. Have a great day!
