Friday Image No.163

Yewbarrow and Red Pike, The Lake District. Fuji X-T2, Fuji 18-135 lens, ISO200, f/11.0, 1/100″

There really isn’t much to say about this image other than I love mountains. I love being high up and I love the harsh and dramatic appearance. But what really captures my attention with this image is the shadows. Without those deep shadows the image loses its appeal. Please be sure to keep your shadows; they add drama to your photography.

Hope you have a great weekend.

    I’m always impressed how sharp your photos are using the 18-135 on the xt2. What was your focus point and aperture for this image and what do you use (if anything) to sharpen in post processing



    1. Thanks Bill. I have been very impressed with the 18-135 lens. The first copy I bought used wasn’t very impressive though.
      I would have focussed anywhere in the frame as all the elements are at infinity so it doesn’t matter too much where the focus point is. Having said that it was probably a little off centre and to the bottom right of the frame. That’s where I leave the focus point unless I need to move it. The aperture was f/11.0.

      Sharpening would have been applied by XTransformer at the default setting when I converted the RAW file to a DNG. It was then edited in Lightroom without any further sharpening. Downsizing was done in Photoshop and again no further sharpening.

  2. Love mountains & the shadows what really caught my eye in this is the vertical crop which is unusual and works well 🙂

    1. Thanks for the positive feedback. Looking at the image now on the site, I can’t help but feel it’s lost something. I printed the shot at A3 and it has a lot more impact. It’s probably one of those that needs to be printed large to best appreciate it.

      1. If we all had enormous 4k screens and calibration kit….
        I’m happy with it as a ‘web shot’ – you can grin over the A3 print 🙂
        Happy new year.
        Keep on feeding us the hills we love please?
