Frosty... by uberfischer Frosty... by uberfischer
This is more or less straight out of the camera. Shot it when i returned from the mountains the other day. I am really scared of the dark so normally i would run for my life when darkness comes creeping, but the atmosphere was too cool to let go.

30 sec exposure

This is more or less how the rawfile looked. I toned down the upper part since it was too bright...

Give me your opinion on this one...

this is one of those things that speaks levels of things to your soul, d00d... not to sound corny, but this seems to have a lot in it that could say +/- things to anyone depending on their perspective in life. it could say scary things or comforting things... er-well, everything can by that rule "beauty is in the eye" & all, but this is oddly neutral. it really can say anything anytime. if your upset, it can show it's "mellow chill" to ease things down for you, or it can be where your nightmares jump out of. for me, personally, it's a neutral that serves me in a positive way. i feel if i looked at it while happy, it would sing with me like a friend who takes joy in my good mood; if i'm scared, it would wrap me up in a blanket to make me feel safe... normally this isnt so with other pictures. "energetic" images only really resonate with me when i'm feeling energetic, or depressed pictures when i'm depressed, & so on. this one's oddly flexible, like it was a personality all it's own & is like a friend: it's the exact type of hug i need no matter when i need it. be it a celabratory hug or a comforting one.
to be honest, this confuses me a little. i've hardly ever seen such a flexible effect in a picture... cool, tho! ^5

This is a beautiful shot! I'm glad you stayed out long enough to get it. As for the light that comes through the trees at the top; don't change it. Here's why; you darken the light at the top and tone it down so the picture is a little more dark you still have the reflection of all that light in the water.

It is a beautiful shot just the way it is. :D

I love it, it looks very surreal. The colours are amazing, and the water is amazing, the reason i feel this picture is so surreal is because the water looks like it is still because of the long exposure but there are still tides and ripples and it almost looks like ice or glass.

Nice, the colors look super cool. looks more like a early morning shot than a afternoon shot just because of all the frost on the grass.

for a little bit of crit: i think it might benefit from a little more crop or a little more darkening on the top. i really want to look at the frosty grass and water in the middle but my eye keeps going to the top maybe due to the brightness or the way the stream leads my eye up that way.

youre right...it`s the top part that bothers me. I`ve already cropped a little bit, but i dont feel i can crop any more. I will perhaps try to darken it even further...

Thx!

I think it's great... brrrr tho. Perfect title for it! :)

I wonder how it would look if you cropped the tree line out? (I already put my hand over the top part hehe... I thought it made it look more "dark" without the sun setting thru the trees)

I personally think this is one of your best ones.
The body of water, it looks like it has a layer of ice, but that's just the exposure of the water moving I take it, but it really gives the water a soft, matte look about it.
The blue tinge reminds me of a lot of mainstream, gothic-like band video clips, like HIM, in a good way, it gives a dark, eerie feel to it.
The reflections of the trees in the reflective matte surface look superb, as does the reflection of light coming through the trees.
This is a wonderful shot overall, is what I'm getting at =]
