The Weekly Photo – November 28, 2011

©Darwin Wiggett

This one is from the November Fire and Ice Tour. I used my trusty 17mm TSE lens to give me a wide-angle view with a leaf in the foreground. I used tilt to give me incredible DOF. This one is from Preacher’s Point on Abraham Lake. I used Photo Engine  (HDR) and Nik Color Efex Pro 4.0 (for contrast control) to process this one.

  1. When I first saw this I went “WOW!” then spent some time looking at all three. Great idea with the leaf. And the ice to the left looks like the folds of a chiffon scarf.A different view of the lake and lovely.

  2. Darwin, just stop it! I simply can’t afford a bad case of tilt-shift envy right now!

  3. Oh, you are fiendishly clever, Darwin! I just got email from B&H Photo Video with a “Tilt-Shift Lens Roundup” – clearly part of your conspiracy to force me to part with hard-earned cash just before Christmas! But I shall be strong and steadfast, and resist the siren call of tilt-shift!

  4. Love the detail in the ice. Are you sure you didn’t spill the sugar for coffee and then notice a great photo op? Beautiful images as usual.

  5. What a find, Darwin! I really love this one, wonderful compo and beautiful light. I also appreciate a lot that you posted the two other images to show how you took it. Great job!

  6. Great shots Darwin! I especially love that last shot – such a nice flow to it and contrast of colour… really love it!

  7. Very nice Darwin. The detail shot is great! I like the contrast between the warm leaf and cool blue ice and the blown snow around the leaf. Great images as always!

  8. Cool! After I walked by on crampons, possibly sprinkling ice chips into your field of view, I was curious how the result would come out. LOL! 🙂 It’s icy goodness with a bonus accent…

  9. Simply amazing! I think I know what I want for Christmas… 😉

  10. just one word….WOW 🙂

  11. Detail shot done with the Canon G11 and processed in Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 and Nik Colour Efex Pro 4.

    Darwin, do you have any movies or text on how you use Silver Efex Pro 2 and still end up with a color image???


    • After a loog serch, I noticed an artical from the summer, “July 4th 2011” with you getting into the some of the details. You mentioned a follow-up to come…. Did you ever do that?
