How do you get the "sunstar" effect? I thought you only need to turn the aperture smaller, but it doesn't seem to help that much. Is there anything else that will intensify the "rays" of the sun?

Different lenses flare differently ;) Also, if something is occluding the sun partially it can make for a huge sunstar.

I really love the way you composed this shot, the transition from the sand, to the aqua
coloured water, to the dark mountains and finally up to the gradient of the sky. The
colours really make this an interesting and beautiful shot.

Was the lakeside more light sand and your editing darkened it, or is it naturally dark? I ask because we have a lot of lakeside beaches in Minnesota, but they always have light sand.

I'd say this sand is medium.

that's great. Does your polarizer make that nice sun shape? Is it a circular one or linear?

How do you find such green waters?! i totally wanna bath now 8D
Reply
:iconanderfo:
anderfo Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2012
Glacial water (water coming from a glacier) is often green, due to the "rock flour" particles in the water. The glacier has basically scraped those particles off the mountain, and they change the water's reflected light from blue to green.

The glacier itself is normally blue, since the rock flour is not being made on top of the glacier - it's at the bottom.

Google "green glacial water" and you'll have more in-depth explanations ;)

If you want to find such water, your own country (Norway) is a very good place to search for it. We have plenty of glacial lakes!

I live in Trondheim and there's no glacier right here. However you can find it all around in Jotunheimen and several other mountain areas. For example, if you google "Jotunheimen", the first thing you notice is that the lakes are green ;)

En god sykletur betyr vel 6-9 dagers sykkling? :P

tja, det spørs på farta og utholdenheten... ;)
det er ca 275km. med en snittfart på 30 km/t vil det ta deg litt over 9 timer. legg inn et par matpauser og du kommer opp i en bra dagstur!

those mountains look kind of like Oreo cookies...heh, just kidding.

Very cool transitions in this one! It's almost like each section represents a different season of the year...if that makes any sense(?) The dirt, fall...the water, summer...the mountains, winter...and the sky, spring! Perhaps I'm the minority on this one..haha!
