    I really like this Beth.  I have always had a fondness for color images that appear b&w.

      thanks john.  i like naturally desaturated images too.  and it was certainly grey while i was in the south of iceland.

    I like your take on Skógafos Beth. I went the other way and used the hills to the right. I’ll post something later.

      can’t wait to see it.  i had a good vantage point from the ring road shooting up the river but i was too lazy to change the 32-64mm out for the 100-200mm cause it was raining then.  next time..

      thanks dahlia.  i pushed the darks in the river bed as much as i could before i lost them and added a little contrast with the highlights.  and i took out a few rain drops that collected on my lens and 2 people.  and stacked the 6 shots and masked them so everything was in focus.  other than that it wasn’t too far off from what you see.  the rock is pretty dark there due to the volcanic activity.  it wasn’t overly saturated to begin with thanks to the rain.

      thanks.  i was already wet from visiting the dc-3 plane crash and figured why not.  the water wasn’t that deep, about halfway up my boot which was waterproof.

    Lovely.

     

    I remember carrying my gear across a very cold creek in Norther England once. I was so cold I started to lose feeling in my feet. Narrowly avoided going for a swim with my gear!

      thanks rob.  the water was a bit cool, but nothing like that.  i made it out with full (albeit a little squishy) feeling in my feet.

    Great pic Beth. The thing which grabs me most is the way you have captured the feeling of depth and coldness through the muted colours and the POV. The focus stack has worked really well to bring out the foreground rock which has a sharp metallic look instantly grabbing the viewer and guiding them into the misty waterfall in the BG. Love it!

      thanks graham.  i was looking for something to fill the foreground and i think i hit the jackpot with that rock.  right place, right size, right color.
