Foggy sunrise

February 24th, 2010

Here is another image from Monday morning.  I took seven frames, each one stop difference, and my assistant John assembled them using Lightroom and Photomatix’s Lightroom plugin (  This was taken with my Canon 16-35mm as the sun rose through the fog.  The tree behind the big oak were heavily tilted due to the convergence caused by aiming upward with 22mm of focal length!  I raced back to my car (yes, I should have had my camera bag next to me!) to get my 24mm Tilt Shift lens, which I used in the previously posted image.  To correct for the distortion of the trees, I asked John to straighten up the trees.  Instead of using Photoshop’s Lens Correction tool, he used the Crop tool, with Perspective box checked.  John writes about using this tool in this blog post, at the bottom of the page:  Breaking the Funk/Meditations on a Moment Blog.

Let me know if you have a favorite between the two Sunrise Fog images!

    Hi Bill, I happen to like this image over the version in the previous blog. It feels a bit more magical (the tree is a bit more in the mist) and with more excitement (probably the tilt in the trunk). I have a sense of the tree reaching out over me. Just my two cents. Great image with great light.

    I’m a bit divided! My favorite must be the lower one. Mainly because of the sun and its position making that great effect between branches. But I think that the composition in the cropped picture is the best. I like the tight composition on both side of the oak. //GO
