The Best 3 Impressive Photos in Two Weeks #31


Do you feel it? The blue is high in the sky, the smell of wet leaves saturates the air, and the wind is chilly on the cheeks. The autumn leaves are falling, and the weather is turning cold. When everyone starts wearing sweaters, you know autumn is close to a close. How are you spending these last days of fall?

Again this week, beautiful photos of autumn were posted on the Samsung Camera and Samsung NX Facebook pages. Here are our three most impressive picks.

1. Samsung Camera

This picture features a pinkish sky almost perfectly reflected in a lake. While many photographed reflections take something away from what’s being reflected, this one seems to add to it, with a deep color gradation. This kind of gradation is only visible at sunrise or sunset, during what’s often called the ‘golden hour.’ The most beautiful pictures, with the most fantastic array of colors, can only be taken during that window.

That goes for nighttime shots as well. Photographers keen on capturing colorful night lights and rich colors of sky never miss the golden hour.

2. Samsung NX

This is another picture taken during the golden hour. The combination of trees, fog, and ghost like reflections makes the photo look almost mystical. What makes it so?

Nature is never one-dimensional, but photographs are. That’s what makes it so hard to capture a natural landscape just as is. This picture, on the other hand, looks three-dimensional because of the distance between a tree in the background and tree branches in the fore. The perspective effect adds a feeling of depth and height. Wide-angle lenses, like the Samsung NX 16mm f2.4 iFn lens, are used to emphasize perspective and give this desired effect.

3. Samsung NX

Against the achromatic background, the vibrant red of bus jumps off the print, stimulating more than our sixth sense. The Selective Color feature built into Samsung SMART CAMERAs was used to create this stark contrast. With it, you can isolate a single color, be it red, green, blue or yellow, and make your picture really pop. Smart, right?

In addition to this smart function, the NX 1000 has a host of filters, making even the most ordinary pictures extraordinary.

Thanks to everyone who sent in their wonderful autumn pictures over the past two weeks. If you want to share any more of the stunning scenery captured with your Samsung cameras, please upload your photos to the Samsung Camera and Samsung NX Facebook pages. We’re ready to share your most touching moments.
