p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Chestermen Beach - Tofino - Vancouver Island


The following are pictures from Chestermen Beach on Vancouver Island. It is near Tofino and right below my window at the Wikinnish Inn.

I shot a similar scene with my 25f2, 35f1.4, and 15mm/2.8 zeiss with an umbrella over my camera to avoid the rain drops. I was trying to live with 3 lens. Well 4 - I brought my 17-55 for my 7d and kayaking.

It was a tough weekend for landscape photography. Blowing and raining so much it almost ruined the umbrella.

#1 for me, but I'd clean up the tree bits at the right edge.

Timmeh: I actually physically cleaned up some debris in one of the pictures - I will go back and see what I should do in photoshop. Thanks fro the suggestion. Much appreciated. Scott

Hey Scott,

Those are tough conditions to shoot in, you came away with some nice shots still. I agree that #1 is my favorite, the lead in with the water in the foreground really makes it work. I do agree with Tim as to cloning out those couple of odd tree branches just poking into the scene along the upper right edge.

JimFox: Thanks for the feedback and suggestions. The intruding trees do lead the eyes out of the frame. Much appreciate. Scott


paul weston: I just got the zeiss 15/2.8 last week for wide northern lights/nightscape shots. So far I really like it. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


Heinz H: Glad you like 1. Wider usually works better for me. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott

Vancouver Island is such an awesome part of the world... I really like these. I prefer the 2nd by quite a wide margin actually, for its powerful use of negative space. However, I do think it needs some blending work on the trees at the right. The sky between the cracks is too bright.

paul weston: It is the best fast UWA bar none for low light. Perhaps the nikon 14-24 with an adapter is close, but the zeiss has less correctable ca and less correctible distortion and no focus creep. The only other lens is the TS/17 but it is not for night photography at f4. If I was just doing landscape, I would stick with my ts/17. But on this trip I was planning on night photography.


Gary Clennan: As I said to Paul, there are only 3 choices in uwa, and for low light this is the best one. Hopefully the picture tells the story. Thanks for the encouragement. Scott


Matt Tilghman: Good suggestion - there is some differences in exposure between the branches and it could be darker. Thanks for pointing it out. Much appreciated. Scott

Scott, I am finding the sky being so dominent in all 3 photos, yet I think brings very little to the photo. It is very drab and grey. I know you want that set of trees on the right, but a tighter crop that would take out most of the sky would improve the image from my perspective.

chez: I was hoping for some color or pattern but it was just not coming. I agee that the sky is pretty constant. I should have tried a lower shot with more beach. I will go back and look through my raws. I appreciate the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott
