Challenge: Benches (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro for Canon
Location: Brussels Belgium
Date: Nov 23, 2008
Aperture: f/2.8
ISO: 1600
Shutter: 1/20
Galleries: Landscape
Date Uploaded: Nov 23, 2008

Captured during a snow storm, by extremely poor light: 1600 ISO and still 1/20 sec @ f/2.8, handheld. Not a lot of sharp images in the serie...
Focal lenght 24 mm

Post processing: WB, levels, crop, contrast, clone some twigs, a bit of noise ninja, slight toning (but it is NOT converted in B&W !).

I have an interesting outtake with 2 models sitting on another bench, in the same snowstorm, I'll post it after the challenge. I liked more the graphic and composition of this one though.

Perfect title for a lovely photo. You really caught the quiet solitude of a snowy afternoon. Really really well done!

Nice concept. I like the how the tall trees contrast with the length(depth?) of the scene. I'd still like to see a little more to the right side (to accentuate the length/depth).

Lovely shot although I wish it were a little sharper and that I could see right to the top of the trees.

What a stately bench and a stately row of trees to match. Lovely shot.

Wonderfully cold and lonely from this perspective. The detail on the bench kind of echoes the knots in the trees (or vice versa) which is very cool.

Vertical composition works well. Like the detail you've achieved in the branches. Commenting only.

Lovely setting. I would have overexposed it a bit to make the snow white and bright.
