Camera: Nikon D80
Focal Length: 50mm
Exposure: 1/800 sec
Note: Gisli Agustsson captured this image of a geothermal plant near Keflavik airport in Reykjanes, Iceland. The image is very powerful and shows the amount of pollution some of the industrial plants put off into our atmosphere. The smokestacks are the only visible part of the plant showing through the steam, making it the focal point of the image. I love the different tones in this image as well, making it all more powerful. Very nice shot!
Tip: The shutter speed (exposure) of 1/800 of a second allowed for smoke to be clear and frozen in time. By increasing the film speed a little to 160 (ISO) allowed more light in to expose the photo. Gisli used the “rule of thirds” in this photo to add interest to the smoke stacks, and to get more of the smoke in picture.
