Perishable moments

Perishability in a photograph is important in a picture.  If a photograph looks perishable we say, "Gee, I'm glad I have that moment."  John Loengard

(HDR - 3 shots - 10-22mm  f22  1/6 - 1/100 sec  ISO200)

(SOOC -no editing - 10-22mm  f16  3.2 sec  ISO200; same place 35 min. later)

Kyria @ Travel Spot said...

I love that it's like two different places depending on the light. They are both beautiful, as always!

Rick said...

Thank you, Darlene - I always appreciate your encouraging words !

Hello Magda, and thank you for your kind comment.

Thanks Julia (the sun was still up for that one).

Thank you very much Peter !

Obrigado, BlueShell ! I hope all is well with you. Beijos !!

Ha ha - yes I certainly was, Becky - thank you !

ioan moldovan said...

Excellent images! Congratulations!

lisa said...

Isn't it amazing how quickly the light changes???
Both of these are just gorgeous Rick, but I think the first is my favorite. I love the way the sun looks like it is just touching the tops of the trees.

Rick said...

Thank you, Ioan !

Yes - sometimes incredibly fast. I like to keep shooting throughout a sunset exactly for that reason. Thank you, Lisa !

teca said...

Honey, I don't know what is "perishability in the photograph" but everything is beautiful, very beautiful! The images are magnificent and that's the least I could feel and say.
Beijo e beijo between the two that I loved! :))
Warm hug.

Loves.

Took awhile to find the comments under this new format. I do like it. Tried commenting on your last blog not sure if it went thru. Will try here now. What can I say just beautiful.

Cat said...

These are magical, Rick. You inspire me to learn more about HDR!

Rick said...

Ha - thank you, teca (I'm a little late responding to these). I think the perishability lies in the fact that too soon moments like these are gone, unless captured. Hugs and many beijos for your weekend !

Thank you kindly, ebru ! Hugs !

Thanks for your comment, and your perseverance, Carrie ! I've gone back to the old format due to the confusion - will wait for blogger to fix a few things.

Thank you, Cat - I'm still experimenting with HDR - sometimes they turn out.
