Congratulations to the winners of the quarterly PHOTONews Challenge!
Spring Reflection on Cameron Lake
Thane Vanderaegen captured “Spring Reflection on Cameron Lake” in Waterton Park, using a Canon 40D with a Canon 17-40mm f4.0 lens. Three bracketed shots were taken utilizing a circular polarizer.
“I arrived at Cameron Lake quite early, and upon seeing the lake this calm, I knew that the scene was perfect. When the shots were combined in Photomatix, the colors took on the hues of Ammolite, a gemstone found in Southwestern Alberta.”
A Wonderful Variety of Lilies
Sue Thompson of Chatham, Ontario found this gem in her neighbour’s back yard using a Canon Digital Rebel XSi with a EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS lens at 146mm, shooting at 1/200 second, f/5.6 ISO 200, EV –1/3.
“I am a backyard photographer. My neighbour has a wonderful variety of flowers and a never-ending supply of great sunlight.”
Evening Blue Hour
Ivan Sorensen captured this evening blue hour image at Cootes Paradise in Hamilton, Ontario, using a Nikon D90, 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 lens at 18mm, exposure was 3 seconds at f/22, ISO 200.
“Cootes Paradise is always a wonderful place to shoot. The sun had dipped below the horizon about 20 minutes earlier and I was waiting for the typical blues and magentas that show up here with late twilight.”
Playing at the Granville Island Water Park on a hot summer day
Harris Hui of Vancouver captured this summer memory.
“I took the picture at Granville Island Water Park, using my Nikon D300 DSLR and 70-200mm f/2.8 lens, ISO 200, f/2.8 and 1/2000 second, set up on my Manfrotto 190MF3. The lens has fast focusing capablility and it allows me to photograph the fast moving kids in the park.”
Raindrops on a Branch
Renata Lenartowicz of Guelph, Ontario, captured this image of raindrops on a branch using a Raynox DCR-250 macro lens attached to a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30, at 24.4mm focal length, shooting at 1/30 second, f/3.6, ISO 200.
“I was about to leave the Arboretum when I saw this branch. Raindrops, with their secret, reflected images, always fascinate me.”
