    bgrablin - I hope you have a lot of storage because Rooz is right. You will be taking pictures that not many people have the opertunity to take. All of us would have a blast going through and working on all of the raw files you will come back with.

    Thanks for all the kind words on my last beach shot. Here is another one from that day.

    ESP, another nice shot.

    i take them all in RAW+JPEG fine.

    My settings were:
    ISO 800 (to capture the blades)
    f/5.6
    1/1000 sec
    0.0 EV
    3D Color Matrix II
    Auto Focus
    Natural Density - 4

    Whatever you did to that photo is what I am going for. Was it just some dodge and burn action in PP? That's what I am going for. Simply Brilliant.
    bgrablin, RAW is definitely the way to go. As Rooz said, you have a ton of room to make adjustments to get the most out of the image. You can even use ViewNX(free download) to make some minor tweaks or for more options CaotureNX, Lightroom or CS3. (Levels, curves, color)

    As a personal preference I tend to stick with the lower ISO settings, usually 100-200 sometimes 400.
    I find I can usually get better color results, sans noise, with the lower ISO. Using your settings from above I would try lowering the ISO to 400 and bumping the shutter to 1/2000. And if your lens allows, use f/4 ISO 200 shutter 1/2000 to obtain the same exposure.

    In any case keep posting those amazing shots!

    First, its Rooz your talking to, he probably just hit the "auto" button in pp.

    Depends on the program your using, using lightroom there are numerous sliders to use or curves, contrast, vibrance and many more. season to taste.

    Take a couple of chopper shots with a slower ss, to capture the motion of the blades too, as well as freezing the blades. your going to have some real keepers.

    lmao

    esp, composition and post on the sunset is wonderful.

    bgrablin, that's definately a keeper. keep having fun. Like rawpaw18 said it depends on the editing program, so what's your flavor.

    Smile Eternal Flame

    I'm a huge fan of photoshop, and have been using it since version 5.0. I recently pushed to Lightroom for better organization and post production development. I haven't worked with RAW much, but I am currently reading just about everything on this forum to catch up.

    I have plenty of space (collectively about 2.5TB) so that won't be an issue. Yesterday alone I took about 240 shots. Most of them turned out really well.

    StuartN: I will take your recommendation on the ISO setting, I see your point and I think speeding u p my shutter speed will get the desired effect I am looking for.

    New day, new pic. For some of you who are fresh on your bible skills, you should be familiar with the eternal flame.

    Quick snipit:

    The eternal flame is a crater about 50-feet in diameter written about in the Old Testament. King Nebuchadnezzar threw Shadrack, Meshak and Abednego into the flames because they wouldn't worship his golden idol. The Bible tells of them surviving, unburned, because of their faith in God.

    It is said to be over 5,000 years old and still burning today; although not as bright as one would imagine. With enough speed I could probably run through it unscathed.

    nice presentation rberga1, I like what you did overall - also not a theme we have seen a lot of here.
