Here's a shot of tavy cleave. I took a very similar shot last year but in worse lighting conditions, I am much happier with this shot, it seems far more in keeping with dartmoor.
I took this shot on a shoot with a Paul Morgan, [link] I think we both learned a lot from the shoot because we take such different approaches to our photography.
Whilst Paul is keen to produce and artwork primarily and processes his images to how he thinks they look best. I take the approach of staying very true to what I saw. What I find stragest about this is that Paul is several years older than me and yet seems to have embraced digital much more freely than myself.
EDIT: Sadly this was the only photo not backed up when my dad reformatted the home hard drive without asking me. I know longer have the original, which is a great shame, I was fond of this shot, I will have to retake it.
I think that what people say it is "washy".. is actually pretty correct since the weather was overcast.
Although the water came out well, the rocks and the trees are small so perhaps instead of even "wider" as some people suggest, I would have tried closer or more correctly a longer focal length, since I feel that the background should come out more, but the foreground is pretty much fine.
You used 17mm which is equivalent to 25mm in full-frame. I myself often find that 28mm is on the widest side I use for landscapes, because otherwise the backgrounds get too small and you need to view the pictures projected on a wall to appreciate them. Often I just use 35mm or 50mm and try to play with composition.
But that is just a suggestion, you should have tried both, I can't possibly judge from your shot if it would have worked better!
All of it.
I bet you didn't even get a single breath of fresh air that day
I like! Nice capture, mate.
Great shot btw.
perfect exposure Alex
Beautiful place and photo.
