Thought I'd give this an airing in the gallery. If you aren't a user of the forums, then you may have missed the 365 project that I'm doing for Ephotozine and Tamron, where I'm giving an 18-270mm superzoom travel lens a grilling.

The project's evolving steadily now. It's not so much a review of what the lens can and can't do now - because I think I've covered it most of that now - as it is a guide to getting the best results out of modest equipment.

This was created without image degrading optical filters. I just wave my arms like a prat in front of the lens, covering the bright parts of the image to give the shadows more time to build. It's something I've been calling sensor dodging. It's like HDR, except that it comes out of the camera looking almost exactly like this, with just a bit of colour correction needed in most cases. Good fun.

Wow....what a gorgeous shot, and if that is truly your technique, it is quite amazing.

I'd like to see a video of that technique Wink
Actually - very clever and excellent results, it must be quite hard to estimate and repeat the hand trajectory accurately.

Excellent picture!

The metering is easy enough, but it can take quite a few attempts to get the positioning right, and you have to keep moving to avoid lines.
Cheers folks.
