Follow my line....

My get pushed challenge by @vera365 is a leading line photo. Love that composition so I wanted to try some today. This is my first posting. The only place I may fall down is she wants the focal point at the end and I don't think I have done that. But I loved it so posting it today. This is a bracketed picture processed in Fusion-HDR. I seem to have a fascinating this summer with bw. I also like the little white line that looks like a spike pointing to the back of the river.
@vera365 Here is my first attempt at your challenge.

I love this in black and white, great design. I really like your bracketed shots as well. Still thinking about trying this program, but I have so much more to learn with lightroom, I have to learn one at a time.

@radiogirl I played with LR all winter so I felt ready to play with this and used the free version for about a month or more before I made the purchase.

Wonderful pic!

there does seem to be a little island back there at the end of the lines. I like the contrast of the leaves with all their texture and the smooth water.

@francoise It is a branch over the water and reflected in the water and maybe some rocks. I looked at it closeup in LR.

oh, a sort of floating above the water island then.

Joan, this is fantastic! The smoothness of the water, the level of contrast, the composition -- it all comes together so well! Fav.

Brilliant capture!!

This looks great in b&w, I would never have picked this as the same place that Janice shot.

Spectacular b/w Joan! Great detail and tone range! Fav!

I love the water action at the bottom! Fav!

The tone range and focus in this shot are really noteworthy. What a lovely photo! I would like to take a canoe down that sweet stream, heading right for the "V" in the center front. :)

I like it! There seems to be a highlight of some sort at the end of the stream, so the eye goes to that (you mentioned it was a fallen branch?). I am glad you are enjoying the challenge.

Great shot for your challenge Joan. love it in B&W

I like the way that you thought 'out of the box' for your leading lines challenge... and yes, the difference between this and Jan's colour shot is very striking.
posted July 23rd, 2015  
Beautiful contrast between trees and water. Striking shot.
