on the twig! Had a play with this, and rotated it so it was a bit like one of those snow storm shaker toys (as suggested on previous upload)
I just found it fascinating catching so much of the house in this little rain drop
Great shot - this is really cool.
excellent shot click
Very awesome, turned out well!
cool idea, works for me .click.
Wow, exceptional capture! Great use of reflections, Well done! Spot On! Click!!!
I like the way the twig seems to be holding the drop like it was a hand with a thumb(albeit a rather horror-film-like clawed hand!).
Quite the reflection - wow! Good capture.
And I can see you in the reflection, hehe.
Works for me, nice effort.
thank you all for your comments - appreciated.
Jean - hadn't seen that twig as a hand, now you mention it...... yes, it does look a bit claw-like
Su - you must have good eyesight (or a really good monitor) cos i can't see me!
Wow, great portfolio. Congratulations!!
Great idea,well taken.
Great idea with great result. Well done Karen!!!
The RAW quality is much better than JPEG, especially if you blow up your image size and you do a lot of adjustments in photo editing software. Steps that I always do with RAW file:
1. Open RAW file in Photo Shop (You need to download free plug-in to be able to open the file). Of course you can also you the bundled software from Canon, but I do not really like the user interface.
2. Set the depth menu (at the right bottom corner) to 16bit. Choose the setting to advance menu (right upper corner). The rest of it, you can adjust white balance, exposure, shadow etc.
3. After you finish, you can use Photo Shop feature for re-adjustment. In my experience, this overall step always gives better results compare to JPEG.
4. If you want to convert you edited file into JPEG, you should change the depth of the file into 8 bit (Image>Mode>8 bit).
Dj - thanks for coming back to me about RAW files - much appreciated. I will have to have a go now!
Like it. Well done.
Previous post was just a laugh.. it was late at night.
Glad it worked though. Must have really bad monitor 'cause I can't see you OR the snowflakes!.
T - I realise that it was your humour on the last one - but it gave me a good excuse to use the idea on this one nice to play! Damn - did i forget the snowflakes
Very imaginative. Excellent work.
Yes this is rather good! Superb in fact!
What a good idea.. very well done *click*
I tried this last week - failed miserably. Well done you.
As for my Raglan shot. Off the roundabout towards Clytha, turn right up the lane, past the farm, about 300 yards. I did ask at the house first tho'
Asking for permission stops someone shouting 'Hey what the b---dy hell are you doing there'.
Farmers get a tad touchy about things like taxmen etc. We are all good friends now.
If these are the results you get as a relative beginner, gawd help us when you get some experience, should be worth seeing!
You have the inate talent for wildlife photography, making it look easier than it is. This looks quirky and shows great attention to detail. Makes me think of a snail with his house on his back.
