Stones and Reflections

Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III__TS-E90mm f/2.8__2.0 sec at f / 13__ISO 100

I made this image yesterday on my patio.  The water reflects my ochre-colored wall.  I have been watching the light for when the stones and water were in shadow but the wall remained lit.  I was trying to find a good composition with a single frame but it wasn’t working.  So, used the shift function of my Tilt Shift lens as well as the forward tilt for increased depth of field.  I made one exposure with the shift all the way to the left, and then “shifted” the lens all the way to the right while making sure I had enough overlap for PhotoMerge in PS4 to create the pano.  I selected the best two images in Lightroom, then used LR’s Photo menu to “send” the two files to PS4 for merging.

BTW, I used my Canon TS-E90mm f/2.8 for this image, combined with my Canon 2X Extender to create a 180mm TS lens!

Enjoy,  Bill

  1. 植牙與一般牙齒基本上是相同的,無論在咀嚼上或是外觀上與一般牙齒相似;除此之外,由於植體為太合金,而且周圍為骨骼包覆,沒有牙周韌帶的緩衝 ,咬合的衝撞力將更直接!假牙製作需要更精密的技術!

  2. Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one? Thanks a lot!

  3. Yup, it gets Bill at least my business. I’ve probably bought two or three things I wouldn’t otherwise have bought because of the blog, as well as showing up to the Art Trail open house. Probably the biggest advantage is that it gets me to come back on a regular basis, because I expect to see and read something new. It is much less common that I say, “Ah, why don’t I take another look at those nice pictures in Bill’s portfolios.” (Although I DO say that to myself every now and then.)

  4. William, I just posted to the same CA blogging thing, following the leads. Nice blog, it has a purpose and a function… mine has a purpose but not as much function so I can see where yours has value. I see as well that you are getting comments which means you are getting traffic, something harder to build than a blog. Do you feel you are getting measurable results for your blogging efforts… monetarily that is?

    Cheers,
