Award Shortlist   


By ade_mcfade      
Not really done too much with the camera this last week so relying on these shots of Whitby from Good Friday

I'll upload the original of this so you can see just how much crap there was on my sensor... and why I've been reluctant to edit these! Hate cloning out dust, such a waste of your life.

Anyway - this is one looking down the line of the groynes as opposed to a quirky

Amazingly this does not use either an BW 3.0ND or a Lee Big Stopper.

quicker to clean that sensor then mate Wink top shot, more powerful as a mono i think

Nice mono Ade. What a difference between the original and the processed! Like the central framing of the groyne.

it's a very clean sensor now, believe me!

I had no idea it was dirty... I think the wind on the day caused it

Bl**dy hell that is dirty, where you been keeping it, in the sock draw with the lens off ? You still missed 3 bunnies ?

Seriously on the original you have some serious vignetting you don't have a filter, polariser on the far filter slot do you?

just the normal Lee filters set up Nick - 2 slots for square filters and the 105mm ring on the end, where I screw the polariser in.

I used to have a heliopan filter which didn''t vignette, but that got scratched when it fell off in a river once

If I've missed some bunnies, I didn't obviously know they were there!! Had I seen then I'd have cloned them out Tongue

Ta for the award Smile

Quote:... only coz yer too tight to buy one

I was looking for one about a year ago, never got round to it then everyone seemed to start buying them, so thought i'd give it a miss

I'll probably get one when they go out of fashion Wink

hi Mike - not sure if "strength" is a reference to strength in Photomatix?

It's actually just one shot and I used a Silver EFX to create the mono - and upped the "structure" quite a bit.

you can get this look with photomatix though Smile Usually a bit more in yer face though

Great conversion, and thanks for sharing the origional. If i'd not seen the origional i'd have never even thought of attempting a shot like this, now i will thanks.
I'm guessing the small aperture to get the deep DOF showed up the dust bunnies.
Cracking image and good timing with natural lighter break in the center distant clouds.

yeah - it was F22 so everything showed up

Apart from the dust and a bit of lens correction, it really was a trivially easy conversion in Silver EFX - tremendous bit of kit

Really huge change.
