Friday image No.021

Offshore Wind Farm
Offshore Wind Farm

Firstly I am going to start with an apology. Last week there was no Friday Image and some readers may have found me slower to respond. This is because my mother is in hospital (and has been for a few weeks). I have been trying to work around this but it is having an impact on my productivity. Being self employed I need to put my business next after my family. I hope you will understand and bear with me whilst I work through this.

Now to the image which was shot with the Olympus EM5 and the Panasonic 45-150 lens. This wind farm is quite far out to sea and I had to use the 45-150 at its farthest reach. I also used quite a wide aperture to keep the shutter speed up (I was hand holding) and add the feeling of depth to the image. I am very impressed with the lens performance given the extreme focal length and the conversion which was done using Nik Silver Efex is exactly what I had visualised at the time I took the shot. It’s great when something works out for you.

Have a great weekend everyone.

    Best wishes to your mother.

    Was this a panoramic photograph, or a crop from a ‘normal’ photograph?

      Thank you.

      And yes it is a crop from a 43 format image. Not only did I crop the image but I compressed the top half of the image as the clouds were too far from the sea. When I have some time I will work up a fact sheet on it to describe what I did.
