Had a little ride around this afternoon to see what I could find. I found some pylons, trees, and a rusty old boat. Interesting.
Shot 1 - I never realised how spooky these massive pylons we have here in the UK are. I found a trail of them, and pulled over. I had to run out to the middle of a field to get under one. They stand ominously tall in the country side, and buzz and hum as an indication of the power they hold. Camera - shutter 1/125, f/10, ISO 200. Post processing - straighten up, crop, contrast boost and vignette.
Shot 2 - Different angle, same pylon! Camera - f/10, 1/160, ISO 200. Post processing - bump to contrast and brightness, crop.
Shot 3 - Tried to get some dramatic moody ones. Camera - same as shot 2. Post processing - big boost to contrast, turned to mono, and added a slash of black to the lower right hand of the frame to balance out the top left darkness (that was natural)
Shot 4 - Camera - shutter 1/200, ISO 200, f/10. Post processing - turned mono and bumped contrast.
Shot 5 - Tried to get perspective on the cables running between the pylons. Camera - f/10, shutter 1/250, ISO 200. Post processing - crop (to get rid of a thin line of ground) bump in contrast and vignette.
Shot 6 - While riding around I found these line of trees. Lovely. Camera - f/10, shutter 1/250, and ISO 200. Post processing - colour curve tweaked, crop, bump in contrast.
Shot 7 - Little further up the road from the trees was a river. And on the river, and rusting, decaying long boat! Camera - f/5.6, shutter 1/160, ISO 200. Post processing - bump in contrast, crop, and a vignette added to lighten and focus on the rope.
Shot 8 - A broken port hole on the boat. Camera - shutter 1/500, f/5.6, ISO 200. Post processing - bump in contrast, crop (to bring the window into the middle of the frame) and a vignette.
