Then & Now

That 1.8 Planar was a fabulous lens. I had on on my first SLR and it certainly gave stunning results,

Wasdale Evening Landscape by BobShaw

Wasdale Evening Landscape

Very beautiful. I was there a couple of weeks ago and I couldn't see the mountains let alone get a shot like this. Mind you it did clear up by the time we got to the top of Scafell Pike Grin

A pair of Plum headed Parakeets. by Dead_habits

A pair of Plum headed Parakeets.

A nice shot of these lovely birds - I posted a shot in 2012 - but be careful that your watermark doesn't interfere with the subject. You could leave it on but at the bottom of the shot. Where it's placed takes away from my enjoyment of the image.

Pippa & Freddy by John_Wannop

Pippa & Freddy

Great shots John. To answer your question you need to make sure that the background is further away from the lights than the dogs. You want it to be 1/2 a stop darker so that there's separation. It looks like your lights are set quite high so that the angle is steep and the dogs and background are too close to the same distance from the lights. The result is that background is illuminated to the same extent as the main subject. The result is the whites are identical. Drop the lights and bring the dogs forward a bit and you'll start to see the separation you're looking for.

Cheers,
Alan

African dawn mist. by rontear

African dawn mist.

I always loved the dawn in Africa. In the highlands of Nigeria it could be quite cool like this and then suddenly warm. In the dry season in December in one game park the temperature range was 42F to 42C in one day.Grin

Vibrant waterhole in Etosha by pf

Vibrant waterhole in Etosha

This is certainly colourful, but there isn't anything to rest the eye on. When you have an image our brains try to find something to concentrate our attention, in other words to be the focal point. Here we have bands of animals. So, while this is very interesting it won't attract many viewers I'm afraid.

By the way you don't have to tell us your camera, exposure and aperture - the site picks these up automatically from the metadata on the file.

AMR No 96...Stuart Hall by lawbert

AMR No 96...Stuart Hall

A nice shot and well panned, but the camera has underexposed it because the car is white in bright sunshine. Increase the exposure by about a stop and you'll transform the image. I downloaded the image and changed the exposure. something between 2/3 and 1 Stop makes all the difference.
Cheers,
Alan

Nice on Ron. The light smears make it look like they're attacking the building and it has recoiled.
