Friday Image No. 45

Loughrigg Tarn, The Lake District.
Loughrigg Tarn, The Lake District.

This week I want to share with you another image from my recent trip to the Lakes. At the time this was my favourite although this feeling is now fading. I often find this happens. What appeared to be a great/favourite image immediately after a trip is replaced by a different favourite as the memory of the trip fades.

This image is a stitch of 4 shots from the Olympus OMD EM5 with the Olympus 12-40 lens set to 12mm. Stitching was done in Photoshop using the cylindrical stitching mode. I find this often produces the least distortion when you haven’t used a panoramic set up. But it then leaves you with the problem of levelling everything up and filling in the corners of the image.

This image was no different so I used my usual technique of applying a Warp Transform followed by cropping the image to size. After that it was down to processing with Photoshop and the Nik Collection tools.

I liked the image after the shoot and I still do. My feeling now is that I might have more subtle and pleasing images if I spend some time reviewing the shoot. I will probably get around to that in June if I’m lucky.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the image and have a great weekend.

  1. I think I like it.
    I do know that feeling of not being satisfied a few days later. It is too familiar to me.

    The only thing I might notice is that there is a little too much space to the left side of the image as the centre of attention is the three mountains in the background. According to the “rule” of thirds they are too much to the right.

    Nevertheless, in my opinion it is a very pleasing image.

  2. Very familiar feeling to me also. I always want to do better, but funny thing is that when I try to do it over, it never seems to get any better. It always lacks what the first shot had, and what the reason was for taking that shot.
