Bronze Trees

Image 6/20 – Do you know this feeling? An awesome tree or a group of trees. And no way to isolate it from the green and dark background? This is always the case in the North of Germany. We have no hills and no trees on top of these hills to ease object separation. I captured this group several times. A few days ago I decided to correct this in Photoshop. It looks a bit “abstract”… but I like it.

Wetland Fog

Image 5/20 – This shot has been taken early in the morning in the wetlands. Fuji X-T1 and LEE Filter System to balance the light. This was one of the last shots into the sunlight. I stopped doing that. When I see a nice sunset / sunrise today I take the shot before or after the sun dominates the sky. Or I turn round and take a shot in the opposite direction. The light is much nicer / softer. In this case it still works because of the fog over the wetlands. It is magic to be there at this time of the day.

Winter Storm

Image 4/20 – An image you might have seen before. I had one shot only. Heavy wind and rain. LEE Filter: ND Grad and Big Stopper. Long exposure: 30 seconds. Used my body and a big umbrella to cover the camera and tripod. Pier was shaking. After this one shot camera and lens and filter were wet. Couldn’t wait to get home to see if I managed to get a decent shot. It fits into my new style. No major adjustments to the image. That’s the reason why I post it again.

Image 3/20 – An old tree in the frozen wetlands at sunset last winter. No color (bronze) adjustments to this image. The effect has been created with a long exposure and a graduated filter using my LEE filter / my Fuji X-T1. Only minor adjustments in Lightroom.

Image 2/20 – This image has been taken in Dezember last year. A sunset and emerging fog on a cold winter afternoon. The fog remained at its position when I walked into this area. It felt like walking into white…

The way to the sea…

Developing my personal style

A personal style… hard to find… I will go for black and white / monochrome and one selective color. Bronze. I have prepared 20 new or reworked images which will illustrate the new… my new style. You will see one image per day… for the next 20 days. Not sure if it will work out. 🙂 But I am excited to share them with you. Smiles. Reinhold
