Picture ID: 30536 - Order
Shurab Village, is located in Firuzkuh road to Qaem Shahr in Mazandaran province. The village is located, before Savadkuh city, in the Gaduk area. This village is famous for the waterfall Shurab. This waterfall is located in the lower village and right beside the railroad. Rocks of the waterfall due to mineral in the water, it can be seen orange and yellow color.
At the entrance of the Shurab village is a vast plain. In the spring, grows wild flowers in the plains. Among these plains, is a mansion, which is said to be related to a very old warehouse. The warehouse life may be more than 100 years ago. The walls of the warehouse can be seen on the left of this image.
In this image I used my Panoral 45 camera. I attached Schneider super angulon 47/5.6 XL lens to the camera. I bring down the camera height to be closer to wildflowers. Then I moved the lens upward, to appear the background and sky in the picture. But the main problem was the sunlight. Because of the proximity of the sun to the top of frame, creating a ghost at the top of image. I tried to reduce the light intensity by using Cokin P121M graduated ND filter. I succeeded plenty, but due to the high intensity light, yet to be seen ghost at the top of image.
I used Schneider super angulon 47/5.6 XL lens on Panoral 45 camera, center filter IIIC and Cokin P121M graduated ND filter by 1/15sec at f22 on Kodak E100VS 4x5in slide film.
