"Saying Goodbye To Winter"
©David A. Ziser
Normally I don’t post a non-wedding/portrait image on a Tuesday but since this week’s Technique Tuesday post is on the Content Aware Fill tool in Photoshop, I’m making an exception. Why? Because I used CAF in this image too. You can look closely but you won’t be able to spot it. Want to see the original – you can find it right here in a previous Quick Hit Monday post.
This is one of my favorite images from our visit to Banff about a month ago. The scenery was nothing short of breathtaking EVERYWHERE you looked. This image was made as a “drive by shooting” as we were driving along the highway back to Banff and this amazing scenery was breath taking to view!
Compositionally and color-wise this image really works for me. The tallest mountain peek is positioned at nodal point #3 and the trees at #4. The eye is lead gracefully in from the left hand side of the image with the gentle rise of mountain peeks and tree line.
The rich blue sky and the clouds blowing over the mountain speaks to the brisk crispness of the Spring air this time of year in the Canadian Rockies. It was a picture postcard scene if there ever was one.
Camera specs: Canon 7D fitted with 18-200mm IS lens at 35mm, F11 @ 1/400 second, ISO 200. Enjoy! -David
