Default Ping Tony Cooper to inspire

Tony Cooper has often commented on the dearth of landscape in FL
Obviously, while many images have not been shot in FL, quite a few of
them have been.

I do not consider that to be a "landscape". Not really a "seascape",
either, but I don't think all photos need to be labeled too precisely.

Most of the landscape shots in Florida are taken in the Wetlands and
involve water, trees, reflections of trees in the water, and the sun
in various positions over (or through) the trees or over (or reflected
in) the water.

I'd provide an example, but having never taken that shot I can't
provide one of my own. There are thousands of them, though, and
almost indistinguishable from each other.

The "Wetlands" by the way are areas similar to a swamp but with more
dry areas. On any weekend in the Wetlands, the birds and creatures -
which are abundant - are almost outnumbered by the people taking
photos of the birds and creatures.

A landscape, in my view, is a photograph of an outdoor scene wherein
the background is interesting. Mountains in the background, for
example. If you want a mountain in the background in Florida, there's
a very high landfill off Interstate 95 in south Florida.

I like your photograph, by the way, but I'd crop most of the sand in
the foreground. Too much dark mass. Interesting three-bands of
contrast, though.


They are not my photos. While I might have taken some of them
differently, I still appreciate the work. The Western National Parks are
still on my bucket list. The only ones I have been to are Grand Canyon,
Muir, and Redwood.

If the maker calls it a landscape, IMHO, it's a landscape.
