Casa Loma Fountain

Published May 30th, 2012

Yeah, so composition not really interesting here. It's hard to get something so large, surrounded by other people taking photos, in frame and compose it in an interesting way.



The really hard part was, since it was such a large subject, getting simple compositions perfect was really hard, and it shows where I got it wrong.



These aren't, say, my best shots, but I had a lot of fun, which is really the whole point :)

First time playing with long exposures and water, which was pretty fun. I really liked the geographically interesting shape that the falling water makes around the fountain.

Yeah, silky water is overused, but it's my first time so I get a pass.

Tried a wider angle on an individual stream and played with aperture. Not really happy with the results, so I tried focusing in...

So here I tried to focus on details of the fountain. I think it's a better shot since you're last distracted by the background.

I am a sucker for water with a light under it. In this shot, I was we had waited a little later for a dimmer light.

Again, I love the light under the water.

Simple composition, but still fun.

It's like, "oh, you've climbed a hundred stairs at the top of Spadina? You're probably thirsty so here's a fountain."
