Well the difference is quite frankly startling!
Technical data - 150 seconds at F22, ISO 50, Canon EOS 5D, 24-105mm F4L Lens, 28mm focal length used.
And now the snapshot.
Technical data - 1/100 second at F4, ISO 400, Canon G11, 6.1mm focal length used.
To sum up;
One is a snap shot,
The other is a really cool compelling and dramatic landscape shot that I would happily have on my wall!
Now the ace photo was taken on my Canon 5D, the other on my G11.
To be honest I did not realise this when I looked at them in Lightroom, they looked remarkably similar. I assumed I had taken two shots with my 5D, one with a long exposure, one with a short exposure.
So in terms of processing the two images, I merely copied and pasted what I did for the ace image into the snapshot.
It is not the camera, it is what you point it at and what you ask the camera to do that makes a great image! A lesson all us kit junkies should remember!!
Thanks for reading this post and I hope you love my work!
