Triumph Dolomite

By EyesFront
Image is of a section of the Triumph Dolomite prototype engine. I liked the shapes of the component parts and silver reflections. I converted it to Black and White composure as it appeared to accentuate it.

I'm interested in your feedback and critique as always, I greatly appreciate your comments.

Great Mono - very effective angles

This is a shot of three carburettors and I would have liked to see all three in sharp focus. To do this you would have needed to use a much smaller aperture given the close proximity to your subject and you would also have needed to focus 1/3 the way in to the picture to ensure even distribution of the focus. It seems here your critical focus has latched onto the nearest item rather than that point.

Your programme mode seems to have been allowed to set up a rather strange exposure compensation factor. It is that low as to have no effect but I just wonder whether or not you feel it is worth the while checking on this sort of item in case it gives a larger and totally incorrect one.

To accomplish this exposure, I think I would have been on nothing larger than f8 (given your FL is fairly wide) adjusting the ISO upwards to 500 in order to accomplish it.

I had a nightmare about SU carbs after looking at this yesterday. I fiddled with these for many years way back, and have bad memories. I think I had some ration like 5 hours of setting up = 1 hour of driving.


Anyway, over the shock. Agree with Frank on most counts. I think its a little soft overall because after re sizing the image you didnt open the new image, check for sharpness, andsharpen as needed. Shiny areas sparkle whn sharpened.


It does benefit if you tone down some of the overblown highlights, you see a lot more detail, and Ive done this in the mod along with sharpening, makes the imge "pop" a little more I think. I used the highlight tool in Photoshop CS, - you can also do it with levels and a layer mask.



Hope this helps, and that you like the mod.


Replacing the SUs with Webers made a difference in power, and reduced adjustments to near zero.



Regards

I like this as is. The front unit is sharp, and that satisys me, the others having a sharpness recession. Tones and interest good. I've set up twin SU but never tripple. Dont like the thought! They were sods. Nice set of pancake air filters too.
