Photo-a-Day (Tuesday, 4th February, 2014)
Photo: Andrew Fishburn (Canon EOS 6D)
Looks like the loop line bridge,
but makes a great pic.
SUPERIMPOSED with smooth water you mean, why not take genuine shots...what you see is what you get?? This photo does nowt for me. I'm not into bluff or trick photos.
It's not superimposed. But probably done at f22 and 1/10 sec. Or a nd filter
It's not a trick shot Garry. It's easy to do if you learn how to use your camera and get away from the auto setting... A brilliant photo
Again I have to agree with you Garry.
The water over & down the weir doesn't look right but maybe thats how it was. Perhaps if a photo has been edited or enhanced it should be stated.
well i like it... ! ! well done Andrew
this picture has not been altered in anyway because i can do the same with my camera .
Once again Garry doesn't have a clue what he's saying!
Helen, ignore Garry, he's an ignorant troll sometimes on the photo page.
Gerry, we still await an image from Garry!!
Great shot Andrew, plenty going on to draw the eye in! Sometimes you have to suffer for your art!!
OK you lot, what ever it is..IT'S not a real what you see shot. Why should one need to do it? You never see water running like that!
Cullie, so it's been altered, its not what you see in real life!
It's a shame that any pics that are different from ordinary get negative comments. The things you can do with modern cameras if you know how to use them properly is vast. Great shot Andrew!
Great photo, Andrew,
Definitely NOT superimposed, appears to be using just a slow shutter speed which records the moving water as being blurred. A normal photographic technique as stated by others above.
Nice shot Andrew.
This is what running water looks like in a still photo. It isn't a special effect.
It's a good shot Andrew
What was it? A 3 second exposure.
But whatever it was its a grand shot
You must ignore the ignorant trogladites on here who wouldn't know a good photo if it jumped up and smacked them in the face
Thank you Helen. The problem with these types of photos is misleading, just like some tabloid newspapers.
I've never see water like that JOD, garrys right.
Andrew, I presume, has used a slow shutter speed on his camera and this produces this effect! My God, why are some people here getting so upset? This is just a photo! The guy hasn't committed some kind of sinister crime.
I suggest that certain people here have a nice cuppa and do a crossword or whatever, and settle down. By the way Andrew, Great shot!
There is no trickery in Andrew's photo. For those who want to see moving water as they observe it, I suggest they look at a video. A still photo is exactly that. Andrew's photo is an attempt to create the impression of the movement in a still photo. Old Kodak Brownies etc with their slow shutter speeds would have created a very similar effect.
I think it's a great pic, wish I could handle my camera as well. Love the water Andrew, well done.:)
Garry, of course it's not what you see in real life - it's a photo! I'm not sure if I have offended you in some way but you seem to target my shots for negative comments. Just to set the record straight, there is no superimposing of water here. It's a long shutter speed of several seconds to give the creamy look of the water that I was after with a small aperture of f22. The challenge in this case is preventing the blowout of the sky (or put another way, the sky turns to pure white as it's over exposed). I'm sure you will agree that the sky is not uniformly white when only a few clouds in the sky. Due to the camera sensor being unable to cope with such extreme contrast of light and dark there are several methods of stopping that burnout of the sky, the most common of which is using a filter. The opposite is true when the available light is too poor and rather than a filter, a flash is used. It's not what you see in real life - it's just a photo.
Great slow shutter picture. Love these types of photos. Ive done the light trails but not water yet.
Great shot, Andrew. Ignore the negative comments. Obviously not photographers and don't know what they are talking about. Great piece of kit you have to take these fab pics. Keep up the good work.
No offence Andrew, I dont even know you, your probley the nicest man in Wigan, it's just my opinion thats all...Sorry!
HOW do they get the fish out of the stretch??? And where do they put them???
Garry - thanks for clearing that up. No need to be sorry - I thought I had upset you in some way. And thanks for being honest - there's nothing worse than dull photos - devided opinion is a good thing. So please continue to say as you see - it's valued.
Nice shot Andrew, This is a good photograph & not a point & shoot. This is the difference between a photographer & a point & shoot. I think its a nice effect nice Shot Andrew & well spotted you made a snap shot into a photograph
Well Andrew, I have to eat my earlier words about the water over the weir 'not looking right' I have just been looking at some photos taken by the local photographer in the town where I live ( brilliant pics ) & there is a photo that shows the sea starting to cover rocks....it looks just like the water in your pic...so 100 sorry's & grovels !
Come on Garry...your turn now !
Helen..I've said my bit, as I have said before, it's a matter of opinion. My point at 20:08 is sorry to Andrew I'm not getting at him, just the photo. It's a brilliant picy apart from the water on the right, "that's my opinion of the photo" cheers.
So there you are. Get you cameras out. Get away from the auto setting. Set a slow speed. Hold it very steady (tripod recommended) and you too can get photos like this.....no trickery involved. Great photo... Everyone's apologised. We are all pals again....
for heavens sake.... folk are fighting cancer & other illnesses & you guys are whinging over a photo & water not looking real. calm it down.I enjoy the daily photos.
Who's woke up snappy Anna....
