HAHA no Im just kinda returning to my roots. I used to do a lot of graphic design before I picked up photography... Now im just putting the 2 together. I like my stuff to be looked at as art not as a photographs. :]

As for the effect layers layers layers and layer masks :] . And some saturating of course ;)

Gintares, nice set of shots. Those are some unusual lighting effects. How did you create those?

Prospero, these are old pix i took and i am afraid to disappoint you but i did not create those effects, a friend of mine did. i just showed him pix and they looked so dull... he is a Photoshop freak and a photographer and he told me he will work on them. Then he brought me the results. As he moved out since some time ago i can try to call him and ask how he did those. :o

Excellent work TNB, that second picture is amazing!

That action shot is incredible for handheld.. what was the shutter?

Thanks again for the photos!:D
The first photo was 1/500sec and the second was 1/4sec (still hand held). I managed to capture a few ball on bat photos and a few catches of the ball just before they entered the glove both by the infield and outfield.

That new Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8G ED VR lens would have been nice to have for the outfield night shots. ;)

Shot this one under the shade of a tree today on a very sunny morning. Next time I'll bring my reflector and diffuser to try and even out the light on her face and arm. I rented an 85mm lens for the week to see if it's really want I want, and so far it's quite a lot nicer for what I want than my 50mm f/1.4.

Thanks for the replys to my picture.
Rich, yeah my sensor needs cleaning. I cleaned it before this summer, but in dusty Italy it gets dirty real quick. However, concerning the dust just left of the centre; strangely enough only my Loch Ness picture seems affected.

Geoff, you are right, you commented on the picture in the landscape thread. I sometimes post in both threads, because I think many people only look at one of the two places.

K1W1, you're right. I should have posted it in the rumour thread :). I just hope the rumour spreads and I can sell my picture for say 5000 dollars...
(D3 + 14-24 :cool: )

Fiondruinne, I hadn't heard about Runrig yet. I can imagine that the concert suffered from heavy rain. In the three weeks I was in Scotland we had a whopping three days without any rain... :(

Agreed and the ball is getting closer to the bat. Here, one of the local university professors will award an "A" for capturing the ball on the bat in action--I'm not taking the class, but only know that from what he said at the last baseball game I shot at when he was there with one of his students. However, I didn't ask him if it would be for an assignment or the entire class.

XaiLo, Prospero, I plan to speak with this my friend on the phone and will ask him.

Off the cuff, he uses Photoshop, latest version and spends a lot of time with editing. If this was a plugin that was PS plugin, not anything else as far as I know. He is tech freak in any case and goes beyond simple photoshop, my PC station is his work.:D

That probably depends on the night since Nikon also has a few White/Gray lenses. It's just that some of the black Nikon lenses have a nice high dollar "gold" ring (70-200 F/2.8 VR) instead of the color of the night "red" ring. Of course, Nikon does tend to put a red racing stripe on the camera bodies.

Get yo' nasty ol' 40D outta here! I'm a-talkin' about the D40 pics topic, which is quite respected down in these parts!;)

I think we should have a Canon pics topic here, and maybe a Nikon topic over in Mordor :D. It might be interesting to have a topic for comparisons and illustrating some of the features that differentiate Nikons and Canons. providing some folks didn't just start wars over which was 'better'.

Gintaras

Fion, your idea sounds really good and i am sure you can attract reasonable people to post there. And because both Canon and Nikon are DSLR leaders and most people have their cameras and lenses it could be a BIG fun and very useful forum.:eek:

TNB, look, i am not discussing how Canon or Nikon lenses look like... I just laughed imagining D200 with Canon lens, hilarious!!! and the other way around. :p

I dont mind you posting and joining us here, I really dont, but I think its a bit STRANGE posting Canon pics in the Nikon pic thread. Im pretty positive the folks on your side wouldnt be so understanding as we have over here.

BTW, the picture is nice, but looks on the "soft" side to me.:)

I guess you're correct in a way since I prefer my Nikon body with a red racing strip and a matching "color coordinated" black lens with a touch of gold instead of a mismatched white/gray lens with an oversize hood. To me, it's sort of like dating a refined woman versus slumming it with something just thrown on. However, don't get me wrong, slumming it can be fun too. It's just at times you may not want to take her home to mother. ;)

I would have thought that that was what the "general topic" subforums were for as well as the photo galleries within the general topic area.

the first shot is beautiful i love the dreamy kinda spooky feel to it.not sure if that sort of blurry softness was just the camera shake or running it thru NR. eitherway, i think that effect looks great for this shot.

There has been quite a bit of discussion on this topic in the Lightroom groups on Flickr.
It seems that you need to bear in mind how the picture is going to be viewed when you do the PP. If it's going on the web (Photobucket, Flickr, etc) a different set of parameters need to be used than if the photo was going to be printed.
It's all too difficult for me.

although i'm really not a big fan on the watermark size and positioning, it completely ruins the photo imo.

Thanks, guys! I gave my exposure comp a workout today, trying to get spot-on exposures, and it wasn't easy at the ocean. But this shot has to be my best exposure-wise.

And Rooz, I just kinda slapped the watermark on without considering it too much... when I PP some shots I'll make it less obnoxious.

Thanks Jason, TNB, & X. Timimg is a little tougher than Little League, ball is slightly faster. I wish I could get the faces in shots too, but from where I was the angle did not allow for it. When I do have the opportunity for the face shot, Vinyard throws his arm up at the last second.

You think that if he would have slid head-first he might have made it under / around the tag? Maybe not, the tag looks pretty resolute. Of course, that would have made the very good shot even better! Some things are just out of your control!

Thanks, Rooz, I added the dreamy effect with a little Orton-esque blur. The shots actually turned out pretty sharp, especially for 1.8 and 1600,
I was surprised.

Mike, I really like your composition in the shot of Lower Blue Lake. That's the kind of view that seems hard to capture on-camera, but you did

Nice shot, hankbeblazin! It's good to see you're enjoying your D40.

I do believe a little bit of in-camera D-lighting is the only adjusting that photo needs to mitigate the darkness of the full-sun shadows. Not too much, though, or it would lose its depth.

No problem. Digital image post-processing takes getting used to just as taking photos does, I'm sure it won't take ya long to get a foothold in the process. A lot of it is just opening the photo up in an editor and playing with sliders until you get something good (then trying to remember what you did to get there).

I have been experimenting a lot with Capture NX lately. Especially with the brush selection tool, with which you can apply curves locally. Here is one of the results, straight out of capture NX except for resizing and the border:

Hank,

Another thing that could be done in the future with that type of a shot is a fill-flash... I would use one for this shot. I am not sure how much of a crop you did on the shot, but if you were as close as it appears, or even a bit further, a fill flash would have probably brought out the details in his face that you are likely wishing you had. Even brightening in post won't always give you the details that you want. Especially if you shot it in jpg. Shoot it raw, use a fill flash when the sun is behind the subject. Even in raw the darker portions of a shot are harder to brighten with detail than you might think.

That said, it is still a great shot since you were in the right place at the right time, and even though the shadows could have used some fill, you still exposed it pretty well. It is a great start. I agree though that the shot will probably be editable in post with a quite acceptable result.

Yes, being there right at the moment the sun was slanting through the trees made the shot. But I also added a gaussian blur layer (at 25 pixels) and lowered the opacity to about 40%. That adds the glow.

Edit: Shaft, I had originally called the photo dark - it's not dark, but I think the contrast is slightly lacking. Maybe not strictly contrast, but try lightening the lights (not highlights... I'm talking in Lightroom terms here, hope they make some sense) so that the sand and clouds jump out at ya more. Maybe. It just seems like some of the scene's elements need a bit more differentiation.

Thanks for the comments, everyone. Really appreciate it. I'm glad you liked it.

Tracey, as you said I did not post it before. It may look like some of my Delft or The Hague pictures. I hadn't even made a version with less pp before posting. Usually if I post processed pictures from my holidays so heavily, I make a more conservative edit too for my family. They always want pictures to look natural.

Rooz, nice shots of the kid. You're doing the right thing making kids get used to the Nikon brand early :). Although it's no garantee that they will follow your example, my father used to shoot Canon and after that Minolta...

Tori, nice shot. I like the dreamy look.

Stoller, I like that shot a lot, but just one small critque- I'd rather see the whole tree instead of it being chopped at the top of the frame. It leads the eye up and out of the frame. I don't know if it was possible because the tree was too high but that's just my opinion. I do like the photo though. :)

Sony P&S camera photo not taken by me. This is my daughter (then aged 10) on her first open water dive when she was doing her PADI certification about 4 years ago.
The creature is also not a Sea Horse but a Weedy Sea Dragon (Phyllopteryx taeniolatus) which is closely related. they are very common in the area we were diving in and grow up to about 18" in length.

IMO the way to taking great pix is shooting as many as possible, experimenting in-camera settings, and let frustration not distract you from continuing on a steep learning path.

I think the "extreme" processing is a matter of taste. I think the vast majority of your processed shots are very beautiful, that it was an improvement. There have been a few that I think were a little overdone. But I am sure that you'd get different reactions in any group of people. But there's no doubt that you do amazing work.

But anyway! I love that one r3g. Those types of pictures have always fascinated me...does anyone know why the car never shows up in the image?

Thx. Are you asking why you dont see a trail of the car along with a trail of the lights? Thats actually a good question.. Never thought of that.

I think it's to do with the brightness of the tail lights causing the image to be registered on the CCD.
Think of the Aperture / Shutter speed you would need to photograph JUST the tail light compared to the overall scene.
If you took the same photo in the daylight with the same shutter speed you would still not see the car as anything other than the very faintest blur.

Haha! No he doesn't, he is riding a wakeboard. Its much like a snowboard, where it has bindings (look like giant plastic boots) attached to the board so wherever you go, the board goes.


Looks pretty good to me though I was wondering more about the specifics, i.e. lens (70-200 VR) and if the shot was taken from a moving boat.

Lens was a Nikkor 70-300 f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED AF-S VR on a D50 in shutter priority mode (VR was turned on but in 'active' mode, where it allows you to pan). I can't remember the shutter speed off the top of my head, iso was 400. Yes the shot was taken from a moving boat, but luckily the water at this part of teh lake was very flat, so the movement on the boat was not too bad at all.

That should probably make using the 70-200 VR a snap. Thanks for the info since I have yet to use my lens from a boat. However, perhaps soon since the temps are finally dropping below 100F+ every day (the lake is usually hotter).

Thanks for the warning. However, it appears that I'd be better off taking another offer provided by someone else with a D200 as well. Just another example of why I am leary about some offers. :p And my Pelican should be here on Friday... It's supposed to be waterproof.

As another side track, I just ordered three 20x30 posters from Costco. The price is nice and hopefully my "postersized" photos come out as well--one blonde, one red head, and one brunette. :D

And that tank would be one very large tank if it held NOS.

Prospero,

The church is a great shot. I feel like a broken record, I must be one of your many fans.

CC: I haven't had time to mess with HDR, but this shot reminds me of your castle/fountain shot in one respect but maybe opposite. The Chandeliers seem to be over exposed. I know that the region above and around them are darker so you are probably using a more exposed shot to define the region, but isn't there a way to select the chandelier lights from a lower exposure and superimpose them in a layer above? Maybe it would require some PP after the HDR, or maybe it could be done with the "feed" image before the HDR import.

Just trying to stretch you a little... ;)

If I was going to "upgrade", I'd probably upgrade from CS2 to CS3 before purchasing Lightroom. CS2 may be slower but it appears to work fine for what I use it for and I don't use a lot of the features. I'm very basic in post processing--those who I know who come up with 100+ Photoshop layers don't seem to spend a lot of time taking photos.

You are using auto white balance. Look in your manual for taking a preset white balance using a gray card (Of course, you'll need to get a gray card). I played with the jpg a little in capture.

http://eric-lund.smugmug.com/photos/198712242-L.jpg

I didn't get all the green out of the lights, but the towers are closer in color to your earlier daytime shot.

Prospero
09-22-2007, 04:18 AM
The green cast comes from Mercury lighting. This type of lighting looks bluish white to us, but shows up green in pictures. This type of lighting is hard to match in terms of whitebalance, so its difficult to get rid of the cast in camera.
Furthermore, the towers seem to be lit by a different type of lighting, this makes it even harder since the whitebalance of the towers is different. If you want to get rid of the green cast you should process the different parts of your image separatly (using layers in Photoshop or using the selection tools or control points in Capture NX)

Saleh
09-22-2007, 06:38 AM
that's correct white balanced on auto mode i'll try to take another pictures and i'll play with the setting also i just buy polarizing filters and lens hood so it would help me because most of the times its sunny here, do i need to buy another filter ?

I like the juxtapoistion of old and new. The image has a lot of haze in it. Maybe boosting the contrast or better yet, if you can go back and take the same shot at sunrise or sunset, it will make a heckuva difference. Nice photo.

erichlund
09-22-2007, 10:16 AM
It's difficult to get much polarizing effect when the sun is very high in the sky. However, I'm not sure you've maximized this. There is a line on the rotating portion of the polarizer, and you should point that at the main light source (the sun) for maximum effect.

As an exercise, try this. With the polarizer mounted, stand in one position and look through the viewfinder. Pan the camera, but always keeping the line of the polarizer pointed at the sun. You will see that the position of the sun relative to the camera also has an impact on the effectiveness of the polarizer. Depending on the conditions, the effect may be subtle. For instance, when the sun is directly overhead, it won't matter which direction you turn, because it doesn't change the cameras angle to the sun. This is also when the weakest maximum polarizer effect is possible.

the nightime shot of this scene is much nicer. i really like it.

there is nothing wrong with your lens, you just need to practice a little to get the most out of your gear. :)

in the first photo of the boat scene, it looks like you may have taken it in the middle of the day where the sun is at its highest. polarisers work best late in the day or early in the morning and with clouds in the sky to provide contrast. its very difficult for a polariser to give you any effect in the middle of the day without any clouds or contrast in the sky. remember that the CPL needs to be rotated to its correct point to provide the optimum polarising effect.

in the second photo at night, you have exposed for the lit building in the background and so have underexposed the foreground. next time try and meter off the boats at the front. to do this you will need a tripod and set a longer exposure to get more light into the scene. i would suspect that you need at least a 3-4s shutter speed.

Your photos remind me of when I used to belong to a vette club. I also ran into some of same people I knew last night that were showing their vette.

Anyway, another photo from yesterday, but this time of a car. Afterall, it was a local car show. ;)

Staying with the automotive theme.. Here is one of a local big turbo SRT-4 that I shot today. I took a lot of exposures and plan to make some HDR's, however this one is single exposure.

here is shot for Kuwait City and fishing ships :)
the picture with polarizing filter how is guys ?

The sky in Kuwait is the most boring that I've seen. 10 out of 12 months a year there is no clouds in the sky, not a single one. Some pollution is also visible at a distance of few kilometers ahead(thanks to saddam for that) specially when its "kos"(no wind). Lack of rain makes things dusty and dull to look at.


I'd say wait till Dec-Feb shoot after a rainy day, wait till it is partially cloudy and shoot the same scene. You'd be amazed of the difference.

Thanks Tori, TNB and Michael for your comments. I am glad you like the pictue.
Tori, thanks for your kind words on flickr. That really means a lot to me.

Saleh, nice shot. You nailed the exposure here.
Jason, lovely picture. Nice compostion.

urfs,

It is pretty kewl. What don't you like about the shot?

I am sure that you probably already see the couple of things that I would suggest...

1. Alignment / barrel correction. (it looks like you could benefit from better alignment (which can be done PP, as well as possibly a tad of lens correction) < 5min of post work.

2. Composition. Feels like we are missing part of the picture. This might be because you were trying to compose it with framing that would not have much top/bottom deadspace, or it might be that you were trying to center the main portion of the structure which was assymetrical. Either you could make a perspective adjustment, or you could zoom out to get whatever we are missing to the right (and then crop to remove deadspace if needed). Also, is there any way that you could get a perch a little higher so that there is less blocking the bottom portion of the building?

Your exposure looks good. Shot is interesting.

Getting creative with A) Dragging the shutter and B) selective saturation

I spent all of last weekend shooting pictures at Mid-Ohio. Out of the 3000+ pictures I shot, these are some of my favorites.
Shot with a D50 using various lenses.

I love this picture, very nice exposure. There's just one thing that I think needs fixing, see the light on the left side? some kind of light pollution that doesnt mix with the overall darkness of the night, it killed the scene for me. I'm not sure if you can crop it to remove that part. But everything else is perfect :)

i agree, very nice shot saleh. yiou could try a smaller aperture aswell to get some moe sharpness and DOF.

This was on purpose, I assume?

Or did you get the first moment of a crash?

TNB
09-25-2007, 03:31 PM
I'm not really sure if it was on purpose or not since "most" don't drag the wing and prefer to fly inverted level with the ground or 90 degrees with the ground. The plane did recover. As far as I know the only other person that captured that wing dragging did so with a video camera.

Wow, the latest batch from all of you has been very impressive. Chris, I love the shutter-drag on that one, and TNB, impressive capture.

Here's my next contribution. Just a reminder that, plan as we humans do, creation as no trouble having a say in our designs.:cool:
