Not often you can fit the moon and sun in the same shot (which was barely possible with 1 frame).

Howdy. This is my first real post here and I've only been into photography for less than a month so any helpful critiques would be great and helpful! My gear isn't very good though :/

Is there some sort of image size cap for these forums that i should know about?

This is one of my first attempts of a pan.

Star Trails Long Exposure, I took this shot away from city lights in the bush and it was the first time I attempted a long exposure. I was not sure on what settings to use to be honest. The resulting picture contained a lot of noise. I ran it through noise ninja which helped. Any advice on how to do this better next time ? I'm not sure when next time will be either becuase I don't get a chance to get out all that often. There is a white patch in the bottom right hand corner. I was not sure if this was smoke from the camp fire or the milky way

Check flickr for all my settings (EXIF data). I link all my pictures, so just click on the image.

Cloudy day and sky a bit featureless, however I processed the pic at 5200k so it's a bit blue which I thought worked on the plough shares. I also used a layer mask to darken the sky which has accentuated the blue.

Well, we have properly exposed "sky detail" ... as this is the very same point of view (POV) as the prior shot, using the KM AF 17-35mm f/2.8-4 "D" lens on the a850

If you look hard, dead center, you will see the prior image is in there ... and that just goes to show you how important "framing" is in photography.

Don,

Don't know if its me or my computer screen, but on your shot of the river, the lower portion of the shot with the river looks like a good exposure level, but the trees appear over-exposed (kind of white-washed out).

Your shot with the roadway and sky has a great exposure all around. In that shot, the folliage looks more vibrant than in the close-up.

DonSchap
10-26-2009, 10:13 AM
Darin,

If you look at the EXIF for each image, you will note that the WIDE shot was done a bit darker. Actually 3.3 Ev darker. Center Weighted Average )CWA) metering made the call, as I went with 0 Ev for the center shot. Obviously, it definitely affects the image ... and I took the WIDE shot last. It had a lot more sky and it affected the overall metering. Had I used "SPOT" metering, the 0 Ev would have been different.

I guess I could reprocess the first shot, as I have a -2 Ev of the same shot, from bracketing procedures.

EDIT: Okay, here it is ... (-2 Ev shot)

I know the earth is slightly curved ... but, I think your tripod may have been a little ... well, not quite level, hence the rise of the horizon. You might want to try this, again, but pay closer attention to your rotating platform's bubble level and make sure it is dead to rights or maybe a tad low, to fight off this" effect."

In a way though, it counteracts the skylights to the right.

Sparkie: The second picture of the lone and dead-looking tree looks rather good. The reeds (or millet) look like a screen that's hiding something; like the image was staged to show them as swallowing the tree, when in fact at the depth of the tree there are no millets.

I was out, walking the pooch ... and here is roughly the dog's eye view of our walkway Christmas lighting. I asked him,later, when we reviewed the shot on the HDMI TV, if it was right and he nodded, but said, "You know I can only see in black & white ... but, I like the color, anyway." :rolleyes: :eek:

While I'm not a great fan of modern architecture, I've come to develop an appreciation for photographic opportunities that the Walt Disney Concert Hall presents. This time, on my way home from work, I decided to photograph it at night.

Hi JR, a couple of nice images but I do have one or two comments to make.

The Rocky shoreline
Only thing to recommend would be an ND filter to bring the aperture into the F8/F11 range. This will defeat the diffraction blur of f29 on the elements you would prefer to be sharp.

The Old Fort
This type of shot needs to be pin sharp but, to me, it looks a bit soft although that could be a result of downsizing.
I think you used the Minolta 50mm for the shot and it's worth noting that the sweet spot of that lens is f4 to f8 with f5.6 being the sharpest. I think that 200 is, in any case, the base ISO of your camera so nothing's lost to go to f8/ISO200 and best at f5.6/ISO200/60th sec.

Compositionally, I find the foreground a bit messy. Perhaps you could have moved a bit to the left and maybe crouched down.
Anyway, I think I would crop what you have and move the horizon and small window to the one third point.

Peekayoh: thank you very much for your input. The old fort I will have to work on -- I cropped a lot of it and shrunk it. I used the Sony 50mm f/1.8 SAM lens for that one. Both pictures were hand-held since I didn't have a tripod with me. Well, the rocky shoreline I did have something to hold the camera steadier with, but I used the 18-70mm kit lens (only thing I had with me).
Again, thank you very much for you time and input -- this is the best way for me to learn!

OK jc, I didn't realise you had the Sony 50mm, nonetheless my comments about the sweet spot are still apposite. Although I have no experience with the lens, I believe the Sony is sharpest in the f4-f8 range.

I'd seriously recommend a monopod if funds will run to it. No trouble to have with you and a real help, certainly for me anyhow. I've got the luxury of a ball head on mine which is good for portrait format.

What camera shake :confused: That was tripod mounted. If you're talking about the grey area in the upper left, the panels of the building are not exactly straight and at night every little bit of wave in the metal shows up with a shadow effect. If not, I would sure be interested in what you're seeing as camera shake.

As for the building, if you go to the Interesting Buildings thread http://www.dcresource.com/forums/showthread.php?p=400982#post400982 there is a day shot I took of the back side. ;)

This shot of Lake Tahoe was taken in between storms. I'm amazed at how it looks like two pictures combined in Photoshop, even though the only editing I did was to down-size it for posting to the web.

Here's the same shot after some post-processing to blend them abit more. Although, I'm starting to think I went a bit over-board with the adjustments.

Tahoe Queen at Emerald Bay, Lake Tahoe, California

During my recent trip to Lake Tahoe, one of my goals was to try to create images that looked like they had been taken quite some time ago. My intial thought was B&W images with post-processing sepia tone. But, I discovered one of the color profiles in the A900 is Sepia.

So in this shot, taken in Sepia tone, I shot it slightly overexposed for the trees to match the typical slight overexposure I often see in images shot in the early 1900s.

Nice image I think you nailed the look you were after. If you shoot in sepia mode can you change the image back later?

Thanks, Frank.

If shot in Raw, you can switch back and forth. However, with Sony's software, it resets any other adjustments you have made to the image. So, once you change the color profile, you would have to go back and re-do any other adjustments. But I've found that to not be that big of a deal because the level of adjustments in B&W or Sepia are usually not as involved as in color. If I've shot a RAW image in color that I would like to see in B&W or Sepia, I just make sure I've made a JPEG conversion of the adjusted color image and make notes of my adjustments before making the change.
