  • Bridal at Ripley Castle

    It's a cracker of an image. It's ever so slightly spoiled for me by lights going grey presumably by highlight recovery being pushed a tad too much? I don't think it matters to have lights blown out in an image like this, particularly if the transition is natural, but the grey blobs you end up with when the highlights are beyond what's in the headroom* always bother me - you could restore these using the history brush.

    That is of course if the image compressed for EPZ is reflective of the final file.

    A very small caveat for what I think is a very well staged and well executed image.



    *Always assuming you shot RAW - there isn't of course any additional highlight detail to get from a JPEG.

  • Lady kneading bread.

    Yeah, I immediately thought Vermeer too. On the upload here it looks like detail in her face is completely blown - a shame if it is, although it could just be the effect of the compression. Love the shot otherwise.

    That's a fantastic panning technique there resulting in a stunning shot.

    Have a user award.

    This was my first outing with the original EM1 [back in 2013 now!]

    Whilst it's fairly high ISO for MfT the noise isn't bad and the uncanny IBIS got a steady shot [with ethereal moving figure, which I like] which would have been difficult or impossible with any other system sans tripod. I've straightened the verticals on this a bit, but otherwise it's untouched.

    The day after I shot this in rain-swept Bruges we did a brewery tour and had the most granite-faced of the guides [in English]. She turned out to be hilariously dry-witted. It wasn't until I got home and looked more closely at this shot I realised she'd been drinking in the same pub as us.

  • The late, great Chris Squire from 2014

    Thanks guys - nice to see other people remember.

    And thanks Denny for the UA - I think that's my first - I don't often post to galleries, this is encouraging!

    Yeah, I really like this.

    Some watermarks are downright annoying, but I never mind them when they're as discreet as this one.

    An image like this must take a lot of patience as well as skill and technique to nail the focus and freeze enough to realise a razor sharp image. Well deserved POTW.

  • Lovely portfolio George.
  • Very impressive portfolio, Ade. I missed the mod you took the time to upload on one of my shots, but I wanted to thank you for that.

    It's especially appreciated when it comes from someone who is obviously so good at this game...
