Снимка? Картина?

Pigeon Point Lighthouse - photo by Tyler Westcott

Снимка! :-)

И не каква да е снимка, а снимка, събрала над 300 коментара във flickr, попаднала и в APOD, digg и цитирана тези дни на стотици други места в мрежата, не само в сайтовете, посветени на фотография.

Фотографът се казва Tyler Westcott, лицензирал е творбата си под CC. Снимано е с Nikon D40/Sigma 10-20@10mm, f/7.1, exp. 114s, ISO200, от статив.

Ето и част от историята, как е направена снимката:

Once per year at the Pigeon Point Lighthouse they shut down the weak insipid modern (presumably electric) light and switch over the the 5 kerosene lamps and fresnel lens of the original, as it was 135 years ago.

Last night was the night, and it’s really quite a sight. When they fire it up there’s really a collective sense of “whoa!” from the audience (which was WAY bigger than I expected – I probably had to park a mile away and I was there an hour early).

Capturing a shot like this is tricky because the lens itself actually rotates, which looks great but is tough for long exposures. But for the first 5 minutes they leave it static to indulge all of the photographers who turn out and want this shot (this highly unique and one-of-a-kind shot of course). When they switched to this light my camera still had about a minute of noise reduction to do on my final test shot to get the exposure right, so I missed the first minute. Then I started this shot which was about 2 minutes long, followed by 2 minutes of noise reduction again. So by the time I had my shot it was too late for a do-over. So this is it, I only got to take one photo and this is what I got, so I hope it worked out.

Бих казал, че е добре като за снимка от първи опит! :-)

  1. Кадърът е смазващ! Не само като за първи. А и историята си я бива. Завиждам.
