curtain of falling leaves

Recommended Posts

When roaming through the quiet morning beech tree forest oen could only hear a slight breeze and the sound of falling leaves. How to frame this?

 

A few sunrays fell on the beech tree and I waited for a light gush of wind. High ISO was nececssary to get the leaves sharp with a shutterspeed of 1/250. An experiment of of several shots was neccessary, but time for this was limited because of fading light.

 

Thanks for looking

Iduna,

 

The fine balance of the bright colors at the top and bottom of the picture with the mysterious subtle dark area in the middle accentuate the falling leaves, "What's down there?" one asks.

Paul,

thanks for your comment and your question. I suspected someone would ask. It is a bridge there in the dark. This bridge was difficult to bring out avoiding noise. I'll think about some PSE layerwork. But to have a hidden story behind the curtain is part of the theatrical forest.

Another lovely image in your woodland series. I immediately noticed that two of the leaves look very much like a pair of sinister eyes looking out of the darkness.

Brent,

 

thanks for your inspired comment. Oh, yes you are right, I did not notice so far, maybe it is the spirit of the place taking alook who's intruding and taking his soul....

K.-H.,

 

thanks a lot for your comment, which is most welcome. Great idea, the "ghost" of Herman is there.

 

His monument is just round the corner. This area with its forests and brooks is no area for battles but for stories and secrets and a rich local history (the Romans had no chance for a long survival).

      Hey everyone, 
      I just got my m2 off ebay and had a look through the viewfinder only to see 2 main very noticeable spots. I attached a picture and the one on the lower left looks much dimmer and looks like a dot and a hair almost? It's kind of light greyish and I think it's a particle or dust but I'm not quite sure. However, in the middle the speck seems much darker (basically black) and more prominent. Could this be separation or is it another speckle of dust (imo it doesn't seem like one). If this has happened to you or you know what it is, any input on how to fix or your thoughts would would be greatly appreciated! 
      Also the shutter curtain on the front seems a little pushed forward and I can see the whole seam on it, is that normal? The curtain works 100% fine but I'm not sure if Im supposed to see the whole seam and overlap of the two curtains. On the back it stays slightly open by 1mm or so (didn't include a pic sorry)... should it cause a light leak? The camera was also recently CLA'd.
      Lastly, the viewfinder has some "gold specks" which I think is separation, but I hope i'm wrong.  
      Please help if you can clarify, recommend a fix, or give any thoughts on ^^. Overall the camera seems amazing and none of the things I mentioned has really bothered me, but if I can learn more about them then it would be great.
      Thanks in advance, 
      Ashley
