  • THE SECRETE FALLS

    This is very nice. Consider cropping about 1/3 off the top?

  • MARK CHAMBERLINE WILL CRY

    Is it my eyes, or does this need a whopping clockwise rotation? Im prepared for bad news.

    As mentioned on FB, number two with the correct white balance and some sharpening and contrast would be superior to the horrendous filter effect.

    I still cant see the advantage of 45 exposures compared to one. Do you have a link to an article on this?

  • Headland Polruan

    An ambitious shot.

    Im afraid that stitching software is over generous as its bestowed extra steps in the image in two places. That nice house on the left seems to have been build in the not so popular Keystone style.

    The Zoner software is aptly named as its taken the colour and contrast into an entirely new zone for me! It may well be just to your taste, but I fear I will have to buy more colour pixels for my monitor after I peel my eyes off the back wall!Grin

    I fiddled with the extra portions in the mod, and also colours Grin

    Hi. Theres no detail in the centre of the flower as Moira pointed out; do you have the original from camera shot still? If so, can you upload it right here on this page, just click Modifications, then click Upload and select the original; it will be useful to see for comparison.

  • Duxford 2016 - Spitfire Mk 5b

    Its very soft and not at all sharp. Great propeller blur as a result, which is also thanks to the slowish shutter. I assume you panned with the plane, and if correct, you need to practice panning unless its a technique you use regularly(we all do!). Also, when panning, half press the shutter using the AF Servo mode on the Canon.


    It does respond to sharpening, so the original is close; Smart Sharpening is one of the sharpening modes in Photoshop that not in LR, but you can of course sharpen in LR.

    The rest is increasing contrast, this has no black at all due to the ambient light so making whats actually black = black works wonders;that wheel just sticking out of the wing is a great black reference.

    Thats what I did in the mod, in addition to increasing exposure by +0.66, and adjusting white balance slightly warmer. Also cropped to put a little more space on top.


    Well done,


    Regards

  • A superb set of images showing a real connection with the subjects in many cases. A master class in the art of b&w.

  • Moira, I just LOVE the Dublin series, - as a part Irish person you will understand how your journey, so well documented in this series really resonates with a person born and raised there, as I am.
