You should post things in context. :)
When the thread started I just was not sure that it was "the done thing" in the overall context of the DCRP site forum. It apparently is so that was the end of the matter as far as I was concerned.
Some practice on vehicle interiors. I gotta keep sharp!!

Kellie, you did a great job on the exposure. It probably will depend entirely on the composition of the shot. Since there is white on the face, you will normally want the face to have the best detail. So you will probably find yourself exposing for the white the most. But still try to keep the histogram off balance to the right (if you can) just shy of clipping the white.
thats a terrific shot X.
I took this at an "airshow" here in Bryan, Texas. It is probably a misnomer to call it an airshow, more like a fly-in. anyhoo this is a shot of a Steerman 75 that a friend rebuilt. it took him the better part of 5 years.

1/320 sec - F/9
Thanks Rooz :)
Nice plane pic bobc4d ;), I spent many a weekend leave, cruisin through Bryan/College Station on my way to see my girlfriend. Man that was a long drive. :)
Thanks XaiLo. yeah, pretty much anywhere to anywhere in texas is a long drive and not much scenery. lol
Footy in the U. S. !!
D50 - 1/3200th - iso200 - 80-200 @ 2.8
All better now!
BTW - my footy shots were at iso 200, but the sun was so intense I could have used iso 25 if there were such a thing...
Make sure you are clicking on the insert image icon and you will see your image appear in the text box before you hit submit. Anyhow, here is your image.
Thanks for the assist!
My 1st attempt at an HDR. Comments/Suggestions anyone? I realize this isnt the best image to try and make an HDR out of but i was bored.
Interesting shot - but on my monitor the skyline has a sort of radioactive glow around it!
Actually, the Aussie football played here is through an organization called USFooty, www.usfooty.com, and there are teams all across the United States.
The organization has close ties to sanctioning organizations in Australia, and each U.S. team has a sister club down under.
The St. Louis, Missouri team is known as the Blues, and their sister club is Carlton.
r3g, it's usually the 'strength' option in Photomatix that wreaks havoc with the skyline when set too high.
Well, I guess it would be considered a conflict in a strictly legal sense, but the Blues footy team is named after the Carlton Blues of the AFL, if I read correctly.
Besides, not much chance of confusing the two organizations - the footy team's annual budget is about what the Blues hockey organization spends on paperclips in a year...
I've always been a fan of the real Aussie football that I would watch on TV here, and I miss it now that they don't show it anymore.
What do you think of this shot? Do you think it has potential? I'd love any edits or other criticism you might have. I like it, but it seems like it's missing something ...
55mm, 1/60 sec., f/8, ISO 200
Its a bit flat IMO. Try adding some depth to it in photoshop or something.
Depth ... do you mean contrast? If you have the time, I'd love to see what you would do with it.
It's a nice shot, but there's nothing to draw the eye, particularly. No central focus point.
Hmm, I wanted it to be that pumphouse (or ?) over the river ...
Is this one better?
55 mm, f/14, 1/15 sec, ISO 200
Actually, if you crop the second photo out of the first, it had much better lighting. You really lost the light by the time you took this second shot.
Camera: Nikon D70s
Exposure: 0.017 sec (1/60)
Focal Length: 18 mm
Exposure Bias: 0/6 EV
Strobe: Nikon SB-800 activated with Nikon CLS. Strobe bounced off umbrella.
Do you think the vertical format is more successful? I might have some more, with better lighting ... I'll go check :)
here's my rendition toriaj, ran it through photoshop hope you like.
The picture above my post here reminds me of a shot I took last night. I went with the Nevada Astronomy Association out near Area 51 to take some pictures of the Persied Meteor shower last night. Though I didnt get lucky with a shot with a meteor in it, I did get a few cool shots inculding the one below. I know there are some things that need fixing with this image, but this is how it came out of my camera. You can see the rest of the images here
Thanks, Chris, that compliment really means a lot to me. I sent an email to you (your file email address) to ask about that crop. I like the idea of going back in late evening. I was there just before sunset this time, and I got to see deer swimming the river :)
Thanks for the edit, Xailo, you gave it a nice "sunset-lit" look. Did you paste the sky? Or somehow draw it out of the shot?
Amazing star shots, Chris! How did you do it? I love those colors in the Milky Way! I also like the clouds in #11. I'd love to see a joshua tree as a large foreground in one of these shots ... why oh why don't joshua trees grow in Wyoming?? Really though, these are truly full of wonder.
Thanks, Xailo, I do like that one better. The blue sky definitely adds a lot.
