Flowing Dam

Flowing Dam

This is a shot of the Columbus Lock & Dam. When I lived in Columbus it was a good place nearby to get some good photos, especially at sunset. I liked to take photos of the dam when it was open because I could play with slightly longer exposures to practice getting those types of photos. I actually took this particular photo with a vintage lens mounted to my Sony camera with an adapter mount, which turned a 50mm lens into about a 75mm lens to create a more cropped image. I really like how this image turned out as I usually shoot HDR with my 19mm wide angle lens, though I am shooting more with my 50mm for different looks in my photos. It's fun to play around and see what works and what doesn't.
