Hope you guys aren't tired of swim team pictures! But I am having so much fun! We have been so lucky with great days that just makes the water looks so great! These are straight from the camera. 400 speed, program mode.
Last one for now.....off to a dive meet! Hope I can at least get a few good shots!
Spinning, that water looks brilliant! Almost all pictures taken with good light are really good.
I took these two today late in evening, it was getting dark, there is some visible noise. NeatImage won't help, because it would kill the little details that left..
The first one is just an ordinary sunset.
On the second one, you can see High Tatras mountains in the background.
I am interested in knowing the software used for the HDR processing in the morning in Slovakia shot. Camera settings would be nice too, at least for jpg normal, jpg fine or raw.
Also, the first of the 3 pigeon shots is very nice. Great detail in the feathers. The DOF and overall composition make for a great pic. (even though I am no huge fan of pigeons)
I am glad you like my photos, I used Photomatix Pro for HDR processing. I took 3 jpegs(fine quality, EV -1,0,1 with help of auto bracketing). It is also possible to make an HDR image from one raw file, but it would capture less of dynamic range. Settings were follows:
Shutter speed 1/680
App. Value F-7.21
I was shooting probably in P or S mode, I don't remember.
As you can see, the pictures taken by camera were quite of an ordinary thing. After I combined them in Photomatix(the overall oldchool-like look was done in here), I used NeatImage to reduce some noise, and Adobe PhotoShop for tweaking.
And for pigeons, I am not a big fan of them too, but I like how they can look stupid :cool:
Thanks for the information. I downloaded the Photomatix trial a couple of days ago but have not tried it as yet. Your response will be helpful in getting started.
