"Whispering Tranquility" - Japanese Maple with amazing lighting
34" x 51" HD Acrylic Print
"Whispering Tranquility" A new image being worked on and would love your feedback! When I am out in nature, I am always trying to bring back an image that represents where I was. Capturing the feelings, sounds, essence is really my goal. This Japanese Maple Tree was just glowing in the rain with the sun starting to break through and lighting the green ground and surrounding trees. It was just standing there so beautiful lit up like this. I wanted to just get out a chair and sit here for days. This is one of those moments that you try to capture as a photographer but is really challenging to fully do it justice. This is still is a work in progress but it is starting to come together. The light beams were more focused and the background just glowed around the the red leaves of the Japanese Maple that still isn't quite right. It is amazing how as much technology as we have in cameras today they still can't accurately capture what we see! Like it?! Who wants the first print?! Either HD Acrylic or Metal, this image should glow on the wall. Please share and let me know. Captured with a Nikon D810, Nikon 24-70 f/2.8 lens at 38mm. ISO 200, f/8 and 1.3 seconds. Two other images captured to save highlights and shadows that were manually blended in with @mark.metternich's image blending tutorials. http://bit.ly/1tdA4Nt With the longer exposure I was really worried about the leaves moving and blurring, but it was just still. Enjoy!
