Hi, Kristaps -

In some ways the WS is even more interesting than the main shot, with the grouping of people and the chiaroscuro effect on their faces - not to mention all that nearby lava!

But this shot has a nice minimalism to it, and strong diagonals created not just by the lines of the volcano (including the side piece on the left), but also by the clouds.


PS: Did you bring marshmallows?

Default To zmey: Blue is as Blue does

Even though I did use a polarizer (at least, I think I did), the sky out West in the fall really is that blue, especially in late afternoon.

By the way, I did write a note, which I just posted. I accidentally hit some control key combination early on and TE posted it before I was ready. Check it out; I did try to pull the rock up some.

hehe, Dan, YOU out of all people pressed "some CTRL key" combination that sent your post up before you wanted to? ;)) just kidding, man.

i can sense the polarizer at play here. the top-right corner is slightly vignetted (the corner is darker than the middle): a known polarizing 'problem'; some call it 'effect' though.

but don't worry, as i said in my comment, i love that blue. but the rock is so interesting that i ALMOST regret the blue taking my attention away from it :)
