Today’s trip took me through Knaresborough, and of course I had to take that well known view in Knaresborough of the train viaduct.
One of the things I like to do is just sit for a few minutes and think. And, I thought that this might be a good time to start a “View from the bench” posts, much like my view from the saddle posts. I know it’s sad, but hey, it’s a little something to otherwise fill my time.
It’s been a lazy year for me. However, I do consider this to be one of my favourite images of the year.
Trying out the panoramic feature of the DJI spark. Impressed, but not blown away by it.
I found it really easy Todo, with the drone doing all the hard work taking the images, a great mode for capturing the vista. However, I find myself unable to position the drone where I want, always seeming to stop short. Not a limit on the drone, but for some reason my brain always stops in that same position!
While I always like to process images as little as possible, if at all, some times it’s a requirement of every shot.
Here, for instance this shot taken from my Spark. It lacks depth and colour. Visually, it just didn’t stand out.
However, a little time spent in the Google Photos editor tweaking exposure, clarity, saturation and blacks improve things.
Shadows have a bit more depth, the colours are less muted but still hold the autumn setting.
You don’t take a photograph, you make it
So, don’t be afraid to play with the sliders, just don’t overdo it, and keep it realistic and you’ll do just fine.
