...pastellic winter sunrise... by FelixInden ...pastellic winter sunrise... by FelixInden
Shot in Ballstadlandet, Lofoten islands, Norway

Early in the morning i got up and stomped through the darkness. Angry about the snow that started falling again. Wondering why i got up that early and questioning the sense behind it all.

Then, suddenly, i presenced some colour in the sky- it quickly got stronger. After this capture it lasted for some minutes, before it all was over.

And i stomped back through new falling snow, happy about this captured memory, more awake than ever and i didn´t even feel the coldness coming again on this day...

Joseph, i´m really glad you like it. Lately i simply love the white balance to emphasize the mood i saw on the scenery where i shoot. I tend to not overdue it, but for example in a cold scenery instead of simply showing the white of the snow i love to emphasize the pastellic mood of the morning a bit.
Thanks a lot for your feedback!

So did you buy your filters online or at a store? Also what type of lens would you suggest i have to really utilize these filters? I have a Nikon D7000. Also which filters are a good standard to start off with and what price range am I looking at.

Thanks,

Hi Bryce!
Hm, difficult to explain with my poor english- let´s try.
For Nikon Fx Format this lens (14-24 2.8) is the best wide angle, but it has the big problem, that you need expensive and bulky filter holders to fit filters on it. I use the Lucroit Filter Holder (www.lucroit.com) and Hightech filters.

As you are using a DX camera (a very great one in deed) you could solve that problem using the Cokin, Lee oder Hightech System. Each producer has his own filter holder. You have the option of getting the nice Sigma 10-20 oder Nikon 12-24 or even stuff from Tamron and Samyang. All these let you use way smaller and handier filters than i do and i would recommend to go that way. Your lens will have 77mm ring so you can use polarizers and nd filter straight on the lens only slotting a grad or something into the holder.

If you switch to FX you can also get the 16-35 which isn´t as bulky as mine but lacks a bit at maximum aperture. I have never used apertures smaller than f8.0 before i started shooting nightskyshots, where you love every bit of open aperture you can add.

i hope i could help you a bit

Hm ich überlege gerade, wie ich das besser hätte umsetzen können- ist ja quasi ein langer Weg bis zur wirklich bewussten Bildgestaltung. Eine Eisplatte in Bildmitte oder irgendwas reflektierendes wäre vielleicht noch schön gewesen- aber an dem Tag folgten nach dieser Aufnahme erstmal wieder jede Menge ekelig windiger Schneeregen und da bin ich von dannen gezogen.
