From May 24th, here is one with a bit more foreground.  The emphasis is still the sun rising over Monadnock, but I wanted a bit more foreground with the apple tree evident.Sunrise-over-Mount-Monadnock-from-The-Patten-052415-2-700Web

  2. Wow~it sure is pretty there, and you capture it so wonderfully. I imagine a day started like that has got to be good.

    Not only the live apple tree, but also the faded whatever-it-was at lower right bring it all together beautifully.

    Perfect framing but all down to the dynamic range. If you had lost the detail it would have been less effective.

  5. You managed to hold a lot of detail in the shaded lower portion of the image. (I see now that the previous comment makes the same point.)


  6. Golly that scene is so pretty. Such beauty to start your day and I would think that would set the mood. I’m glad to know that’s an apple tree. It’s shaped so lovely.

    I like this the mostest of your recent sunrise photos. 🙂

    For one thing, I naturally prefer things that are off-center, or asymmetrical. And I really like the implied diagonal here, running through the apple tree and the sun. I just took a look around here, and can’t find a single thing on the walls that’s perfectly centered, like a painting over a sofa. I guess my decorating style is idiosyncratic, mixed-media grouping. (But I can’t stand a painting or photo that’s hanging crooked. I may be half a bubble off center, but I don’t want that for my artwork.)

    • Crooked pictures bother me too, Linda. I rarely hang something with just one picture hook. Two gives the wire a flat to hold it in place. Large pictures I use no wire, but hang the d-rings on hooks so they cannot move…a bit more work but permanently level.

      As far as centering a composition…I try not to, but I also won’t put something off center just because. If it introduces an element I don’t care for, then I will allow my subject to be in the middle of things. It is an unwritten…well, actually it is written…that one should not center a subject. But once we know the rules then break away. 🙂 I am glad this one is working for you.


  8. Wonderful comp Steve I think you did a great job of opening up the shadows a bit, these are hard exposures to handle and I think did it with this one !!
