Last Week’s Instagram

Once a week—or every so often—I will display one of my photos captured and/or processed with Instagram over the last week. It’s a way for me to show photography that usually is quite different from my regular work. Except for the technical details beneath the pictures are displayed without any comments, hoping they will stand on their own. But I still very much appreciate any comments you may have.

Facts about the photo: The photo was taken with a Lumix LX-100 with the lens set at 10.9 mm (the equivalent of a 24 mm for a full frame format). The photo was cropped, then transferred to my cell phone and processed with the Snapseed app with various adjustments before uploaded into Instagram.

  1. I’m especially fond of water that’s been smoothed in this way. I think it’s the best way to capture the rise and fall of the slight swells that underlie surface ripples. It’s a beautiful photo.

  2. Very dramatic! I love the water texture. Also the tilted horizon — normally something that comes in for criticism, but it appears that you may have been trying to reproduce the sensation that the person in the boat may be feeling as they navigate the water.

  3. I love the crooked horizon and the straight-up-and-down kayaker. It really adds to the color and texture that you have brought out in the sky and water. An outstanding image all the way around, Otto.

  4. This is an amazing shot Otto, the incoming storm and rough weather lend a feeling of anxiety for me yet this rower seems perfectly calm and not at all alarmed. The frame of mind definitely influences ones take on a scene. As always the photograph is perfection.

  5. Absorbing surfaces and textures, Otto. The limited colors (white, black, and blue) create the mood. The tilt really works and adds a bit of surrealism. A lovely photo and worthy of a spot on your blog!

  6. What I love about this photo is the layering of colors. I don’t know the degree to which the editing added the blue back in, but it’s fabulous! I’ve taken photos under similar conditions and found they typically process almost black and white, or very monochromatic. The colors in this fabulous photo are very rich!
