Water's Edge

Comments made by the photographer

Submitter's name: Richard Lovison
Title: Water's Edge
Gear used: OM1-MD + Vivitar Series 1 90-180 Macro Flat Field Zoom + tripod + polarizer + cable release
Diaphragm: f22
Shutter speed: 4 seconds
Film used: Fuji NPS 160
Technical information: I used the Series 1 90-180 due to its close focusing abilities. The slow shutter speed was due to the low light (I was deep in the woods) and the small aperture. I was concerned about the bubbles on the surface of the stream blurring and being annoying with such a long exposure though I felt depth of field was more important. The negative was scanned at a local photo shop at a relatively low resolution and then resized and slightly sharpened with GIMP, an open source image manipulation program.
Subject information: The photo was taken at the edge of a stream fed by a beaver pond about a mile up the mountain from where we live. The beaver pond is the water source that feeds the stream on our property and eventually flows into Shaw Pond.

Comment left by: Roy Talbot (rtalbot@laborready.com) You show that even in winter things are not always drab. Nice colors.
