Marais - Swamp (L´ile Bizard)

Celà fait au moins 50 fois que j'essaie de prendre en photo un marais comme on peut en trouver au Canada, et je ne parvenais jamais à retransmettre l'impression que j'ai systématiquement qu'en j'en croise un, mais cette fois je crois que je suis à peu près satisfait ...
Merci encore à tous pour vos visites et commentaires !

I tried at least 50 times to capture a swamp, we can find many like this one in Canada and I wasn't able to transmit my feelings when I meet one of them, but this time I think I'm quite satisfied...
Thanks again everyone for visiting and commenting !

  • Quick question for you. How are you capturing the tonal depth in your images. I am thinking you must be taking multiple exposures (bracketing) and combining them to create HDR images. If that is the case, what software do you use for this. If not, then what in camera technique are you using? FYI, I just started using a D200 and love it. I have also found that when shooting RAW, I can under and over expose by as much as 1.5 in post processing and merge those photos together to achieve a "poor man's" HDR image.

  • > Key : I rarely use multiple exposure, in all this blog I perhaps took 2 or 3 photos with 2 exposures, not more (When I had my tripod with me, and that's really not often). The reason is that I have the feeling that HDR is harming the light and you have to rebuild it from scratch ... for me it is really to much work for a simple hobby. So I simply shoot in raw and try to choose the best exposure to achieve a correct rendering of the light. I often have to enhance some dark areas (photoshop + a masked levels adjustement layer with a wacom) and if the iso setting is low, the noise is acceptable.

  • Très belle photo. On dirait presque du verre... La brume en arrière-plan contribue à l'atmosphère.

  • Wow, this swamp looks so scary it's hard to imagine you deliberately went in such a place about 50 times ;)
    Falpars @ 2006-10-18 06:21
  • beautiful shot! nice tones. a lot of retouch?
    esa @ 2006-10-18 07:46
  • > Falpars : Thank you ! Not 50 times in the same place, but I tried to shoot a canadian swamp about 50 times and I wasn't satisfied until now ;)

    > Esa : Thank you ! Not so much, about 15 to 20min of work ;)

  • Nice job of capturing the swamp. You have a nice balance of picking up the debris in the water and the reflections of the trees above. Reminds me of Dagobah from Star Wars. Looks like Yoda should be popping out from behind one of those trees. :)

  • > Andrew : haha, that's funny, it reminded me exactly the same thing :)

  • Who knew a swamp was so photogenic?? :)

  • Superb photo! J'aime bien la profondeur que tu as captée - ca donne de vraiment belles coleurs.
    Daniel Seguin @ 2006-10-19 05:56
  • Such a simple view, but the detail and colour is amazing.
    Craig @ 2006-10-19 11:42
  • L'effet de profondeur est impressionnant et l'atmosphère assez étrange. Une superbe photo!
    Claude @ 2006-10-19 14:12
  • Toujours aussi parfait. Belle atmosphère. C'est toujours un plaisir de visiter ce site

    Thanks you very much everyone !

  • Elle est vraiment splendide celle-ci. Les couleurs, particulierement, sont fort interessantes pour une photo dans le bois.
    AirBete @ 2006-10-21 10:45
  • The light and color in this image are just surreal. I love it.
    Dennis Rogers @ 2006-10-21 14:04
  • Simply beautiful. Wonderful subtle colors and mystical use of light.

  • Hi Julien, I love your work and have been following your blog for some time. I have a question for you: what noise reduction software do you use? I have a D200 as well and occasionally find that I could use something better than the PS "reduce noise" filter.
    Lucas @ 2006-10-24 10:46
  • > Lucas : Thanks for visiting Lucas. I rarely use a noise reduction software except for some areas on portraits and most of the time the option from CS2 is enough for me, but you should have a look to noise ninja and perhaps noiseware
