That lamps look amazing and beautiful not to mention a perfect masterpiece :)
Lebow,that's kind of you to say. I'm pleased with the way it came out and sometimes think about making another one.~C
Nice!!I would have been inclined to put the camera on a tripod and leave the flash off. Of course the camera may freeze in that time.
Derek,yes, well, then I'd have to have a tripod, and some idea how to get my old Sony camera to take such a picture with long exposure. I tried some with the flash off, but the exposure was way too short of course. I felt lucky to get away with a decent picture using the flash. ~C
Yes,Please don't take it as criticism. I just feel that the setting begs to be photographed with only natural light and the light from the lantern. I understand that technical limitations may well prevent you from doing so.In fact I can visualise a well executed photo adorning the cover of Japanese Garden Journal or something similar.RegardsDerek
Derek,no worries, I wasn't taking your earlier comment as a criticism. I also recognized that nicer photos could be taken, if I had the right equipment - or knew how to use what I have more effectively! Cheers,Chris
HelloLamp is nice, but what I am thinking if I look this picture is why in snow is hollow place,where stem goes into the snow ? Its the same with trees, always snow is blowed off near tree trunk.Probably swirls,but strange that shape is almost perfectly concentrical.Priit
Hi Priit,thanks for the comment. Yes, I think the wind spirals around the trunk causing the cavitation. It's a neat effect.~C
