At Buttle Lake in Strathcona Park on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, I used two photography techniques to make two very different images from the same scene.
The first image was made before sunrise when it was still fairly dark and there was not much colour in the sky. The stump is the main subject but I also liked the submerged rocks in the foreground. I used my 10-20mm wide angle lens so I could capture the foreground rocks as well as the mountains in the background and on either side. I made 3 exposures and combined them in post-processing into one high dynamic range image.
A little later colour started coming into the sky and I was drawn to the cloud reflections in the lake. I switched to my 24-105L lens and put on my 4 stop neutral density filter which blocked out some of the light allowing me to use a longer exposure to smooth out the water.
Two techniques, same time, same setting, two very different results.
