haha yes the old fuji s2 saturation strikes again Wink I guess when they brought this old beast out they were going for velvia or something...I kind of like it though Smile

thanks for feedback...exif data has now been added. It was a dull day, and I was shooting handheld, hence a higher ISO than I would usually use with this old camera so that I could use a fast shutter speed.

Newquay Harbour by dplatt2000

Newquay Harbour

The flowers aren't out of focus, as stated the exposure was deliberately brought down to introduce movement into the foreground...perhaps not everyone's cup of tea, I personally like to see a sense of movement in photos...It would be interesting to hear other people opinions of this. I do agree Paul that it does not look sharp on here, I cannot understand why, as it is a pin sharp image - perhaps it is due to it having been resized when I posted it?

poppies the first time by dplatt2000

poppies the first time

thank you everyone, I must say I wish I had found this site sooner, it really is great Grin Paul, I don't have one with a single flower, to get the composition I was looking for I had to include a bunch of them, maybe that's one for next year! My only quibble with this is I wish I had got this composition, but two weeks later when all the flowers were in bloom (as in the other shot) However I was massively rushed and couldn't...I did intend to return again, but the weather turned and by the time I got my chance the delicate flowers had been all but ruined by the incessant wind and rain - another lovely English summer Grin

Lovely colour and mood, that is a purple autumn haze if I've ever seen one! My only issue is the left side of the frame looks a bit burnt out, could you have perhaps retained highlight detail in this area?

wheal coates

thanks, I will be sure to try that...I have tried altering the white balance in RAW conversion, but it is way too strong to do anything about...

I like how your modification has brought the building out a little more, however I feel it is a bit too sharp and contrasty in the foreground for my liking...I guess it will be an image where i have to spend quite some careful time in post!

Poppies by dplatt2000

Poppies

Thanks for the kind words, this is my first upload on here so it's nice to get some good feedback. Frank, I did indeed use a tripod - how else do you shoot landscapes?! Wink Unfortunately it was a rushed shot, I literally had about one minute to get setup - I had returned here to try again for more flowers, but the sky didn't look promising, so we ended up in the pub...the dog got his walk, and then this happened...I'm sure you all know that panicked feeling!!! I will post a previous shot, but with less poppies, where I spent time on the composition. Cheers x
