Cloud & Reflection - 雲と影

Blythells Bay, Marlborough Sounds, New Zealand

Nikon D200
AF Nikkor 50mm F1.4 + PL Filter

F1.4, 1/8000, ISO-360 (Sky)
F1.4, 1/5000, ISO-800 (Water)

I have just back from the weekend get a way to Marlborough Sounds. I will post few shots from the trip. I'm not quite sure how the camera setting end up like this.


  1. Amazing color. I've had shots of sunrises and sunsets where people thought I faked the colors, but nature can always outdo our own efforts.

  2. The colours here are very nice but i would have preferred to see the individual pictures I think. For me the line between the two looks too sharp and lends the picture an unnatural air.

  3. Cheers John. The natural colour is always surprise me. I made photo more close to the real on the front of one guy, and he still didn't believe that was a real colour. (I forgot compensation of exposure for that particular image.). Well he was out there half an other later of me so what he saw there is totally different. We can not face the colour formation, it will make really unnatural and obvious effort. Nature is the best painter, IMHO, like you said John.

    Thanks Bob. I did tiled the two photo this time without adding borders (I do usually add black borders in between and surrounding. ). I did not blend anything intentionally, because two different surface (sky and water), this makes sharp line. I see your point much better now than when I processed these as tiled. Thanks for such a valuable comment.
