That's a tall horse or a sunken road!
Yep, about 4 foot I'd say.
Beautiful photos but now, thanks to Ed, I'm picturing a horse with really long legs!
Looking again it's perhaps 2 foot.
Ha! It took me FOREVER to find the horse they were talking about it! It blended into the wall color so well. :)What did you use on that top photo for the rounded edges? I keep thinking the fish eye lens, but the photo isn't distorted so I don't think it is. Looks like you're getting a little additional color - adds a little depth to the green on green.
I though anyone bitten in the keister by the horsey bug suffered with it the rest of their lives. Perhaps, sometimes, with tiny breaks for the first year of marriage/partnership, post birth and breast feeding. Only then the bug is passed over in breast milk to the next generation.I thought you'd see and know a Galway Girl from their shadow :D. That's a Connemara Pony. A full blood. My fathers people over in Connemara are into them BIG time.
I dumped my filters for one polerizer filter. I can do all the rest and far more in post. The say the filter saturates the colours, but that's an error. What it does is take out the billions of little reflections and rainbows from air particles and water droplets by changing how the polarity reaches the maw of the lense. It does what your sunnies do to the harsh reflections off car paint and windscreens when you are driving W-E at midday or N-S morning or evening. It changes the angle of bounce.I should make better landscapes with it and the intervalometer on a tripod. Maybe :-)
Ha, I know! I was embarrassed to have missed it. :). That's the downside to using the phone, even enlarged, the photos are small. I didn't notice it until I got home and opened them on the laptop. I mostly like the color the polarized lenses "add" to the photos. Probably what they're removing is allowing for that more saturated color? There are those times the camera doesn't capture the color I see with my eyes. That filter helps. But that's not what's causing that "ring" around the top picture, is it?
The thing is the polerizer isn't 'adding'. Better to say it's revealing details that only a poleriser can.In LA for instance it would strip out lots of smog. The ring is because I went cheap. Instead of buying a polerised filter for every lense I bought one very good one that is gigantic, and then I bought a set of step up and down rings.That hint is the edge on the corners when at a very wide angle. I could easily have cropped it out, but I like it. It looks like an old film. :-)
Both look beautiful and wet!
Top one yes, wetish. A term for say 30% rain. Bottom one was due to it being overcast.
