  • Cityscape of Durham

    Dont think Ive ever seen this from above before. Drone shot? Intersting shot of a great location.

    The cynic in me almost didn't believe this. I particularly like the foilage reflections, which look quite fractal or kaleidascopic. Have a UA on me.

    Cracker of a shot, must have taken some patience to get this as well as great technique.

    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.

    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.

  • Laytown races

    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.

  • 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...
