Treequility

By pptbudi
A journey to private Island to calm my head and heart ... 1200 ha Island at the middle of the ocean ... perfect weather, so easy to took a good picture, the sharpest aperture on my lenses, I hope the infinity focus on it took good all detail

I like that title!

Well composed. The lonely tree adds to the sense of isolation, and solitude.

For me, its slightly underexposed; the water line at the horizon seems very hard, as if drawn in, though Im sure its not.

The mod addresses these observations, and as usual, the mod is more sunlight toned than blue as it is here.

Hope you had a relaxing time.



Regards

As Willie says - a slight positive exposure compensation might have been better than minus a third of a stop.

You are proud of the sharpness you achieve at F7.1, although as Willie says the horizon looks strangely hard and sharp, even at wide angle I would not expect that.

Is it actually attractive, or advantageous I wonder? Does the human eye see like that, everything from foreground to horizon, all pin sharp at the same time? We focus our eyes on a foreground subject, the immediate interest, and everything else gradually softens behind it. To see everything analytically hard and sharp seems unnatural and uncomfortable to my eye. I would prefer distance to lend mystery.

I do love the tree.

Wooow, what a beautiful modification, I agree it seem it under exposed, I took by RAW now and software did the automatic JPEG conversion I did nothing to change or made modification, just open the pic and converted to JPEG, Thank you very much my friend, It sure did a great time and wishing you a great Sunday Smile, Thank you very much

I have no idea where all those sharpness came from, I shot in RAW and all already reduce to standard setting, The capture NX-D do the rest, I move it to PC and convert it to JPEG and the result as you can see, I add no sharpness or reduce it, just convert to JPEG and as you can see here the result, I do focusing 1/3 at below, make sure I'm very still and shot after do framing, so can you suggest what next thing should I do ?, even at aperture 2, they come very very sharp using my old lenses, if I'm really still when took the picture, Thank you very much Moira Smile, have a lovely and great Sunday for you Smile

Software left to do things the way it was set up is as dangerous as a camera left on Program mode...

You need to do the conversion at least partly manually, looking at the colour and brightness and histogram as you go.

Ah yes, I read and watch about the histogram, it all came with same conclusion which said there are no correct histogram (I hope I said it right), and it's depend to personal taste and this make me more confused, cause as you know my target is to represent the picture as close as possible when the time I took, the light, the color, etc and I'm fully realize that my tools can't achieve that and I'll try to make some adjustment with my taste or what I think it close enough with the world I see, thank you for your patience and your kindness to keep helping me improving with my photography hobbies, I deeply appreciate it my friend, thank you very much Smile

Get used to checking the histogram and you will very rapidly find that the graph pattern varies tremendously according to lighting, style, contents.

But you will also find that you can understand much better what is going on in the exposure of the image, and understanding the histogram will enable you to adjust light in order to achieve the result that you have in your head.

Much preferable to relying on automatic adjustments!
