Poppies on waste land by doh_knuts

Poppies on waste land

Hi Andy,
I rather like the somewhat understated effect you've used here.
As for the poppies, they're quite in character with the rest of the shot and let's remember, poppies come in all shades between a pale yellow and the bright red that we traditionally associate with them.
Including orange.
Cheers,
Bren.

Pretty Quick by temporalwarp

Pretty Quick


Quote: Obviously not the place to show this genre, but who cares.

Strange, isn't it that certain shots, or types of shots, never seem to generate any enthusiasm. Even if a few people were to only comment on the shots' technicalities and nothing else, it would be something.

For what it's worth; I used to be a drag racer so it interests and appeals to me.

"Buchon," by colin beeley

"Buchon,"


Quote: Me109 but with a Merlin engine.[/

Sort of.

It's a Bf. 109.


Messerschmidt stopped making them (as the Me.) in about 1939.

Messerschmitt by colin beeley

Messerschmitt

It's actually a "Buchon," built in Spain after WW2 by marrying a Rolls-Royce Merlin to a Bf. (not an Me., Messerschmidt stopped making them in about 1939) 109 airframe.

It's not a bad image but the colours are desperately wrong. It's possible to improve it by de-saturating the green channel but I fear the problem is substantially deeper than that.

Time to revisit the raw perhaps.

Quote: The pilot flew along the front and slowed down enough to open his cockpit.

He's always flown this with the canopy open. I think it's something of a trademark.

Not My Type by danbrann

Not My Type


Quote: I learned to read upside down and the wrong way round as a youngster in newspapers many years ago when lead type was still in use.

Likewise, although I had to do it using the Polish language, including about half a dozen accented characters.

Good as this shot is though, the guy in it, is standing the wrong side of that type and he's got the stick upside down, in the wrong hand.

Daffodils outside Ripon Cathedral by xwang

Daffodils outside Ripon Cathedral

The colours here are really flat Jas.
I've increased the exposure by a full two stops (using CS6) and it's still not showing any signs of over exposing.
Also it's lacking contrast and it's very yellow.. I've made adjustments using curves but all I get is a somehow surreal image.
I see that you used spot metering and I'm wondering what it was that you metered from?
Personally, I almost never use "spot." In this instance, I'd probably have used "centre weighted" and metered from the central, most prominent daf., although "matrix" would, I think, work just as well.
Hope this helps; sorry if it all sounds a bit negative.

On the printer... by xwang

On the printer...

I can indeed read it Jas.
My profession; the one that I trained for five years to perfect, is that of a compositor.
My job was to work with type, just as this, to produce printed documents.
The way to read it, particularly when you're working with it, is to turn it so that it's updide down to you; ie. the top of the page is closest.
That way, it still reads from left to right.
I can still read "mirror writing," which it effectively is, as quickly and easily as I can read normal text.
With a little practice, it takes a surprisingly short time to learn.

There you are . . .
. . . some more useless information!

Jackrabbit2 by StrayCat

Hi Denny,
This is good but it still has that somewhat 'washed out' look that the previous ones had and there's still that slight cast.

By: StrayCat

Northern Flicker by StrayCat

Northern Flicker

This is certainly sharp enough Denny and there's plenty of detail.
I was going to suggest that it's over exposed slightly but upon opening it in CS6, I was surprised to see that the histogram actually falls quite well short of the RHS.
Not sure what to make of that.

local enduro racing by topcatz

local enduro racing

My kind of shot!
John's pretty much said it all.
I'd just add that it benefits from a slight increase in contrast. The histogram falls just short of the LHS.
Using curves, I applied black and white thresholds, in my mod.
Hope this helps.

Staircase in The John Rylands Library by xwang

Staircase in The John Rylands Library

Hi Jasmine,

I can see the merits of both of your versions and why you chose to modify the original.

Personally, I think I'd be inclined to find a middle road; something that displays more detail than the original, yet not quite so low key(ish) as your modded version.

Hope this helps.

Bren.
