Henry Godnitz - Saskatchewan's Pride

Saskatchewan’s Pride
Tiger Lily: Saskatchewan’s official flower. Henry Godnitz of Regina, Saskatchewan, made this picture in his home studio using a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi and a 100mm macro lens; exposure time was 30 seconds at f/32, ISO 100. Desk lamps with daylight bulbs were used for an optimal white balance.
“My photographic focus is macro, as I desire people to see and value the beauty that lies mostly hidden in things that, being ‘common’, are hardly given a careful look. Being a proud Saskatchewanian, I tried to accomplish that mission with our beautiful provincial flower: the tiger lily.”



Robert Allard - Serenity in the Storm - Petrie Island, Orleans

Serenity in the Storm
Robert Allard, of Ottawa, captured Serenity in the Storm at Petrie island, Orleans, Ontario, using a Canon 50D and a 10-20mm zoom at 10mm.
“I shot three bracketed exposures of 2 f/stops over and under at f/13 at ISO 400, and processed in Photomatix Pro. I have tone mapped this HDR just enough to show the dramatic thunderstorm passing in the background with the sunset peeking through the clouds.”



Alex Bruce - Leuty Lifeguard Station - Kew Beach Toronto

 Leuty Lifeguard Station
Alex Bruce, of Toronto, captured our attention for a second time this month with this photo, shot early in the morning at Kew Beach in Toronto.
“I used a Canon 5DMKII with a 16 – 35mm lens, taking three bracketed exposures at 23mm, ISO 400, and f/22, then I processed the image in Photomatix HDR with further adjustments in Aperture 3.”



Linda Witteveen - Dragonfly - Monteville

Linda Witteveen of Monteville, Ontario, captured this image of a dragonfly on a Lupin plant with a Nikon D90 and 105mm Micro-Nikkor lens, shooting at 1/200 sec. and f/11, ISO 200.
“It was a nice sunny summer day and this dragonfly landed on a Lupin plant long enough for me to get this shot.”



Alex Bruce - Kolorful Kayaks - Toronto

Kolorful Kayaks
Alex Bruce of Toronto captured this image using a Canon 5DMKII with a 16-35mm lens.
“The image is an HDR composition taken at the Harbourfront sailing club in Toronto. I shot a low angle perspective, using a tripod and a 16mm focal length with a polarizing filter, ISO 100, f/8. I shot five frames at shutter speeds of 1/15, 1/30, 1/60, 1/80 and 1/160 sec. then processed in Photomatix and tweaked in Aperture 3.”
