"Autumn Beauty"

"Autumn Beauty"

This is another one of my first digital images taken about 8 years ago. What strikes me is, even though so many years have gone by since I made this image, it is still a beautiful image with a certain timeless quality. I love the rich color of the sky further enhanced by the wonderful cloud formations throughout the scene leading the viewer's eye right to the bride. It was indeed a beautiful day, but my lens of choice for this image was a 16mm Nikkor Fisheye lens. It's super wide field of view is one of the main reasons we have such a dramatic rendition of the sky. The use of the off-camera flash allowed me to further control the exposure of the ambient tonalities of the scene which included the sky. Camera specs; Fuji S-1 fitted with 16mm Nikkor Fisheye lens, F8.0 @ 1/100 second, ISO 400. Enjoy! -David

  3. Stunning image! I second the previous opinion on the "cloud arrangement" issue! :)
    Am I missing that much in not having a true wide-angle? You make me think I am...!
