Water is the sign of life. Wars have been fought for it and still more than 80% of world’s population does not get it the way they deserve. The day humans find water on any nearby star, they will invade it, that’s how valuable it is.
Apart from the biological factors, it also brings a great amount of joy and splendor if you just sit on lake shore or a beach. Sad thing is that photographing it is not an easy task, with all the light bursts and other technical difficulties, besides when you take a photo of a landscape consisting of just water, the viewer say, “what’s the point, it’s just water!” He’ll never understand the atmosphere there was when you took the photo.
Today I have a collection of pictures which are basically consist of a water landscape and you’ll derive great inspiration for taking such shots.
If you look a little deeply, the photographer was sitting while he took this shot. Framing and composition is also bloody perfect.
That’s just capturing it from the right angle. You can see there’s no unnecessary part in the image.
I’m not really sure if this is the ocean or not but if you look closely, there wasn’t a focal point in this image, so the photographer just added a couple of tall trees in the frame. Focal point is very important.
If you think this kind of shot can be taken with the first attempt, you’re dead wrong. Always always capture many shots and one will best fit your imagination. This is exactly what the photographer would have done.
Sometimes the details of an image are what makes it great. You can see a little boat in the background, remove it and the picture will lose its feel.
Sometimes it’s just the location that makes it great. This really is a splendid view.
This image has excellent focus levels.
If you remove the trees that border the lower left edges, the picture will lose its soul.
Have a look at the toning.
HDR effect without HDR.
Low exposure in the perfect way possible.
It is a brilliant idea that when you capture a structure, try to capture its reflection in the water. Creates a great effect.
The best time selection of early evening and the trees on the left guard the lake. Super shot.
This is a low exposure with a magnificent focus level. The focus was set to the plants in the foreground and that’s why the trees look a little blurry.
That is just seizing the moment. A photographer always has his camera ready. You never know when you might find a sight to remember.
The digital miracle. Some excellent light toning and contrast adjustments have been made on this photo. Photographers should have a grip on Adobe Lightroom or its free counterparts.
That’s how you capture fog and mist.
That must be the work of a naughty photographer. See how he has merged the sky and ocean.
A camera doesn’t only shows, it also hides. See how it is hiding the impurities and pollution in the water.
Low exposure mixed with digital assistance.
That’s framing with the proper elements. The same landscape could have been very ordinary from another angle.
It’s a beautiful view, you just have to be there on the right time.
This picture has so many feelings in it that one or two lines can’t do justice. I’ll skip it.
As you know, a photographer should visualize the shot before taking it. This photographer did exactly that. A wonderful low exposure shot.
Panorama photography example.
Border on one side and the reason photographer took this shot is that there were many many colors here.
Same thing we learned earlier, the photographer visualized this shot immaculately. It’s a low exposure.
Waseem says it’s photoshopped, the orange glow can’t be so vivid. I don’t think so though.
Excellent sharpness combined with low exposure.
And again, spotted at the right time. Always keep your camera ready.
