Well I decided to start with my most recent favorite print. Shot less than a week ago I love this image and the way that it not only shows the bridge and the frost but the steam from the frozen river. The sun was back lighting the image so some details are highlighted and some are in shadow and more of a silhouette.
The blown out part of the running river was left like that to add some "heat" to the image, without it the image is a lot flatter and does not have the contrast that I was looking for.
The image was shot with a Canon 70D and a Canon 24 - 70 F4L lens.
I used 100 ISO so that the grain would be kept to a minimum. Shutter speed is 1/400 of a second and the aperture was at F13 to give a good depth of field - the exposure was taken from some of the snow on the river. The camera was handheld.
This is one of those shots that was not overly planned, I had an idea what I might find as I went here to shoot but as things change by the minute with the weather I was not 100% sure if this would be worth shooting or not. It was so cold that I only spent a short time here before moving on.
I have printed this image on a semi matte paper with the pebble lamination and then framed it into one of my classic black frames. It looks amazing and would fit well into just about any decor or room in your house or office.
