Beautiful, Tim. ❤
Olga, thank you. This light was some what intense but focused. It left the rest of the pond in semi-darkness. The result from the camera was better than what my eye saw. Fortunately, at least in this case the lower dynamic range of the camera worked to my benefit.
My eyes enjoyed the intense light focused on the yellow, water lily. Isn’t that interest how the camera’s eye can see what we don’t and sometimes in the reverse.
Olga, thank you. We get so used to our eyes adapting to different light. I was at a lecture the other night and the person commented that when we are in a dark room our eyes go from f/22 to f/8 when the lights are turned up. This seems opposite but seems to fit. Although our eyes dilate to take in more light when it is dark we are limited to how much light we can see. She compared it to seeing through a a lens that was set to f/22.
Soft, dreamy light. Nice!
Yes, this was one of those situations where the human eye saw more than the camera. The result was much nicer that I had expected.
