Pond 1

Posted by
GJC (Kyoto, Japan) on 2 September 2009 in Abstract & Conceptual.

I feel like I've been in a long dry spell. Nothing I've posted for a long time has really said portfolio to me.

So I decided to try some new things -- for example some urban shots I posted last week. And here I'll start a short series of nine photos, showing different moods of a pond in evening. These photos are more abstract and painterly than what I usually do, and I enjoyed taking them tremendously. Of course, like all my photos, they are especially concerned with the effects of light, but I loved how the water gave me the freedom to be more abstract and to try some new things. I hope you enjoy them.

There is no post-processing done on these images except to amplify the contrast a little. Otherwise it was all done by playing with the WB settings.
Here an evening mist has just begun to rise off the pond.
