Late one day in February, I was on the Bank Street Bridge passing over the Rideau Canal; the look of the sky at dusk caught my eye. I photographed it in several exposures: normal, aqua, black and white, sepia, and negative. Walking on, I photographed the sky again over Aylmer Avenue, beside the nearby Southminster United Church.
Oh I dig that and even got a little flashback action scrolling through them!ReplyDelete
It's a beautiful sky no matter how you show it William!ReplyDelete
Marvelous shots !. This is own of a master in photografy.ReplyDelete
Very dramatic sky William, I think the b & w for me...ReplyDelete
Great pictures! It's fun to see the scenery in different setting. I really like black and white picture!ReplyDelete
@Grace: I enjoy photographing from here.
@Tomas: thank you.
@Geoff: that sky was irresistable.
@Tamago: it is fun!
I guess I'm very "traditional" this time, the 1st photo is my preferred.ReplyDelete
Great sky, William, I prefer the first and the third picture.ReplyDelete
You learn from trying different things. So an interesting sky presents opportunities. It looks like the canal is blocked for skating?ReplyDelete
I am always for normal!ReplyDelete
You got some very dramatic looks.ReplyDelete
@Karl: mine too. Of the alternatives, I think I'd make more use out of black and white.ReplyDelete
@Red: that particular day skating was blocked west of the bridge, and there were no skaters present in the scene below. Right now you wouldn't dare step on that ice- there are in fact open spots to the west of this location.
@VP: a lot of people are.
@Sharon: indeed! One can't go wrong with sunsets.
Great photos of the amazing sky!ReplyDelete
No more ice skating then? Love all the pics and what you have done with them.ReplyDelete
While I usually like fiddling around with pics, in this case I prefer the natural one!ReplyDelete
I like normal & sepia!ReplyDelete
Those pretty sky colours seem to melt together.ReplyDelete
awesome!! i was going to pick a fave but then it seems they all have their own great points?! ( :ReplyDelete
I like the black and white and the sepia. A great way to see what it all looks like in the different settings.ReplyDelete
I like all the treatments, but the first shot is still the best!ReplyDelete
@Denise: well, I do have one or two more random ice skaters in coming posts, but they were from photos taken before the Canal was closed for the season.
@Ciel: I do as well.
@RedPat: I figured some would go for sepia. Not a surprise that negative isn't a favourite one.
@Gemma: it was a beautiful sky that day.
@Beth: they do!
@Bill: it is a good way. I think I'd make the most use of black and white. I should try photographing Centre Block in black and white soon.
@Halcyon: thank you!
I'm all for the first one!ReplyDelete
Well, you know how I enjoy playing with photos...so I like all of them because each brings a special quality to the scene!ReplyDelete
Oh I just love playing around with color and such. I do like the first one best.ReplyDelete
Very beautiful, William, and I love your new header! :)ReplyDelete
New here but I too adore that header. Quite stunningReplyDelete
The black and white made me think of the Seine in France. Interesting that color transports us to different places. I liked the sepia and the aqua one too.ReplyDelete
Looks like the hole in the ozone layer. ;-)ReplyDelete
@Lowell: I like it too. Makes me wonder what the Mona Lisa would look like in negative.
@MB: thank you!
@Linda: it was time for a new header.
@John: thank you! We have a large tulip festival here each May.
@Eve: of the variations, I can see myself working with black and white more.
@Revrunner: I can see that!
Beautiful shots! I like all of the different versions, but the first one is still my favorite.ReplyDelete
These are beautiful!ReplyDelete
Fun! I like the "normal" views with the black and white a close second.ReplyDelete
Neat! I like the normal and the sepia best.ReplyDelete
Very cool looking.ReplyDelete
I keep meaning to try things like this, but...stuff gets in the way!ReplyDelete
@Norma: thank you.
@Kay: I do too.
@Whisk: I thought so!
@Jennifer: that happens.
