That's a great picture Edward; the B&W and the way you have processed it has given a feel of real energy in the picture.
Thanks Sporgon, I actually liked your B&W previous so thought I'de stay in step.
Proof positive; Talent works without teeth and claws Imagine what this would have looked like, with 80MB resolution, a couple of f-stops extra DR on a 2x3m2 HQ print ... If this isn't Phase One territory, what is?
Thanks Eldar, Not sure on the Talent, but I'de agree on how much better this could have been Shot with a Phase One, heading back to South Georgia in November this year, with a Phase One this time.
Still, any Landscape is made better with the addition of say, a Polar Bear chewing down a Seal, a Lion pulling down a Buffalo, right ??
Mmmmm, no Surfers or Oil Rigs but not much water either.I really like this picture. It's a beautiful B&W. Great shot Edward.
what lens, camera, exposure settings did you use. (Well I see your skills is the main thing here
Image was taken on my first trip to Antarctica in 2010, the Klebnikov was slowly passing through a large open straight (can't remember which one), but it was the first day of calm & sunshine for 3 days, so I shot this from the stern deck.
5DMK II & 24-70f/2.8 Version I, 28mm f/11 & 1/500th & ISO100
The 1/500th was due to the ship still moving, albeit quite calm seas.
I processed the Image in LR5/PSCC/One One Effects to add more Polariser, then processed into B&W in Filter Forge 4 using a B&W conversion Filter, it's the first time I've done that, helped get the areas effected by the Polarising Filter to move more to the Blacks.
