Morning Glory II by pestilence Morning Glory II by pestilence
Well since I am still waiting for my new system and I am not processing any new captures, I thought of submitting something from the summer...
Summer...really miss that time of the year, I have been really stressed in work, and I really find photography a lovel escape from everyday madness!
I planned 2 short trips with my motorcycle the last few weeks only for photography, and that was something really refreshing! Motorcycle and photography my 2 passions combined!
This is a shot from the same beach as the previous morning glories (I am not much of a morning guy LOL), Crete the island of my grandfather and the Island of my heart, my home island as I always love to call it...

Nice! But…isnt there a lens distortion? The horizon seams to be a bit curved to my eyes.
Reply

pestilence Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2010  Professional Photographer
Distortion has been fixed, I know what you mean because it feels like that, the distortion illusion comes from the island you see in front, its wierd island, I have shot it with different lenses (non wide angle) and it always feels distorted...spooky :D :D

I thought so too because I could not believe that a copy of the 17-40 performs that way. Thanks for giving me the information!

Τελικα φαινεται οτι η Κρητη ειναι αυτη που εχει επικρατησει απο τις εναλλακτικες μας για το Πασχαλινο μας ταξιδι :w00t: Στειλε must visit ideas στον half-Cretan Kirlian photographer!

Τι να στείλω Μαρία...έναν χάρτη γεμάτο Κοκκινίλες θα πάρετε! Χαχαχαχ :)
Γενικά ο πιο όμορφος νομός απο φύση και παραλίες είναι τα Χανιά, στα λημέρια μου (Λασίθι) θα βρείτε περισσότερο ορεινά χωριά και πεδιάδες...
Αν είστε Χανιά τις παραλίες λίγο πολύ τις ξέρετε (ακόμα και αν δεν έχεις ξαναπάει), γνωρίστε τα χωριά της περιοχής απο κοντά και δεν θα θέλετε να γυρίσετε πίσω!
Η εποχή που επιλέξατε είναι πολύ καλή! προσφέρει όμορφο τοπίο σε συνδυασμό με ανθρώπους χωρίς το καλοκαιρινό στρες (το καλοκαίρι όλη η Κρήτη είναι στο πόδι και χάνει το ανθρώπινο στοιχείο)!
Αν περάσετε απο την μοναδική (στην καρδιά μου...στο μυαλό μου) παραλία της Πρέβελης, σας παρακαλώ βγάλτε μια φωτογραφία εποχής για εμένα...είναι το ομορφότερο μέρος (για τα μάτια μου...για τις αναμνήσεις μου) του πλανήτη!

umm how best to cleanly describe this, a "morning glory" is euphemism for what a lot of males wake up with in the morning
