Full of beans!

You know me Kathryn; I never vote for any images but I have to say that this one's really quite special.

Well done you.

Flying Fortress!

Flying Fortress! by mickshaw

Hi Mick,
Those old Fuji Bridge cameras are really good little weapons.
I've got a S5700 which still sees service on occasions.
I've uploaded a mod. in which I've applied black and white thresholds to increase contrast and the shadows/highlights tool to lift the shadows a bit.
The combination of which, particularly the increased contrast, has also pushed the colour a little.
Keith mentions not using auto white balance. I'm not sure that you've got a choice with that camera but it's subjective anyway.
Some people never use it while others rarely use anything else. Personally I use auto w/b all the time and make adjustments in Lightroom. That applies regardless of which camera I'm using as I don't really trust the camera to decide what's correct.
Another reason for using auto is that by setting the w/b to suit conditions, firstly, depending upon those conditions, you can end up changing it for every shot, which usually isn't very convenient and inevitably and without fail, you will, at some point, forget to make that change and spoil the subsequent shot(s).
Which sod's law dictates would have been the best ones that you would have got that day!

Hope this helps.


Clive's Bike

Clive's Bike by Gavin_Duxbury

The very first, of very many, motorbikes that I've owned!

Mine was the 150cc. version and was painted in a pale bogey green colour, which, I think, might have been a BSA factory option.

Your mate's made a good job of this.

'tis said that you shouldn't use a border that mimics the predominant colour in your image.

A simple white or black one would work better here.

Just my opinion, of course.

As an aside and a completely useless piece of information; did you know that Matt Monroe used to be a bus driver?


Groyne by CaptivePhotons

The 'Medina Groyne,' if I'm not mistaken.

I could tell a few tales about that beach!


Equine by strokebloke

This evokes some memories Jack.

Not that I ever rode a stallion, at least, not one of my own.

A Boeing Stearman.

I suggest that you lose the logo.
It's just too big and realistically, if I wanted to, I could remove it in seconds.

As Keith says there are some dust spots on your sensor, more than you'd want to keep cloning out, so a clean is probably in order.
I'm not sure that much can be done to remove the noise from an image this size, although it doesn't look too bad. You could probably remove it more successfully using your original.
The weather hasn't done you any favours. A gentle tweak using the shadows/highlights tool helps.
The biggest fault here though is that it's more than a little crooked. Easily fixed in software and there's plenty of room to allow it.
Hope this helps.


The Motor Cycle

The Motor Cycle by lenocm

It's a "Ural," previously called a "Cossack."
A Russian made machine (there's a clue in the name!) and although based upon based upon an ancient BMW design, this probably isn't old at all.

There are various versions, which can still be bought today.
