Vanishing Steel II

Can you see the difference? Of course I don't mean the perspective... but do you see that there's a difference in sharpness, or clarity?


This one was taken at ISO100, with a tripod, with 10 sec exposure, f/8.

The other one at ISO400, handheld, with 0.7 sec exposure, f/3.5.


I find the difference is pretty clear in the far background, but not so much in the foreground. At least not at regular flickr ("medium") size.

    Wonderful. Personally, I can instantly see the difference. The tree's detail in the foreground is instantly noticeable in clarity and sharpness. The background detail is fine and the colors really pull in nicely.

    Great job, Gabi!

    Wow. The colors are just freakin' amazing. This looks like something out of a sci-fi movie.

    And the colors in this one are fantastic ... very surreal looking.

    It's great that you picked an industrial scene - they're so interesting at night

    Jeff, I appreciate your wonderfully perceptive comment very much. Thanks a lot for this, and for the encouragement!

    Dave, glad you like it. Sci-fi movie, huh? Blade Runner?

    Thanks Teresa - glad you like it!

    Thanks Dave too - yes, I just fell in love with that site. It's really awesome, color-wise, reflection wise, angle-wise, detail-wise... I guess I have to go back another time :-)

    I agree that this one looks sharper to me, also I love all of the different colours you've captured... who would have thought the night shot would be so colourful? :)
