    Nice pictures everyone. Looks like the D40 can take good pictures. I guess the D40 must have some 30D parts in it! Just kidding! Thought it was funny with the D40 - 30D "word-joke-kind-of-thing"...and...well...never mind...

    BTW Xailo looks like Spring is in full swing down in Hotlanta.

    Wesan,

    There's alot of Star Wars inuendo going on here and in the "Some 30 Pics thread"
    When you switch from Canon (S3IS) to Nikon (D40) as Xailo did we call that going to the "Dark Side"

    Drama was almost seduced by the Dark side but in the end he saw the light.

    So when you decide to jump to the DSLR which side will seduce you?

    chrisl, just getting started really.

    ReG_00, most were shot at 1/60 f/5.6 ISO 800 all of those where sharpened, no biggy because of distance and the lens it would be expected... but there was no need to use noise reduction wow!

    AMDnut, thank you very much dude... yes, that is a furby a plastic one I'll take a pic of the real one... don't think you'll be disappointed at all... I actually took the S3 and the D40 to the game I only took a hand full of sots with the S3 but it performed surprisingly well though. But a long zoom on the D40 would have made it a no contest.


    Wesan, the force is strong here.I have to agree with you Wesan I'll try to make a conservative effort to get that information in there. But honestly my time is rather limited and with the way I handle my work flow it wouldn't make much sense to most. What I mean by that is for the most part, my PP does not deal with hard fast numbers and is very subjective. Right now all my camera setting are neutral so the first thing I'll do is see whether it is too light, dark or if the white balance is off. If need be I'll look at the histogram or threshold information to make sure data was distributed evenly. Then I may do a level or curves adjustment in some cases multiple curve adustments or create a duplicate layer and change it to screen or multiply to lighten or darken the image. then maybe a hue saturation adjustment, a filter effect and so on. The real problem is I use different techniques which is the key and without understanding the techniques the process can be meaningless. I've learned a heck of a lot about post processing over thee past year but not enough to really teach it. Lastly anything that I post here I do not save the working file just the resulting jpg. hth

    chrisl:
    Which side that will seduce me? Well...I think I'd like to be Luke Skywalker... BTW - I tried to write my comment about "another Star Wars fan" the way that Yoda would have said it. I know from before, that there are a few Star Wars fans around here. I didn't know you were one, though.

    XaiLo:
    Yeah, I understand you. It takes time to write down all post processing that you do, if you do a lot of it. And usually, we may not have that time. EXIF-data could be easier to post, though, because in some programs it's very easy to copy the EXIF-data of an image and paste it somewhere else. Or, if the picture you post here, still has the EXIF-data in it, you can use the program Opanda IExif to view the EXIF-data yourself.

    Though...perhaps the more you learn about photography, the less important and interesting information like that becomes? It becomes more interesting to see skills of the photographer himself/herself and different lenses (in the DSLR-world)? On the other hand, if you're interested to see how a certain camera model performs under different conditions, it would be interesting to know what post processing has been done. Because, after post processing, you can't tell what the image looked like when it came straight from the camera. And this could be misleading for people who want to see how a certain camera performs itself. So some brief information about what post processing has been done, could still be in order, maybe?

    Well...this was just a few thoughts from a "young padawan"...

    I see what you mean Wesan all of the initial images had no post processing done. It never really occured to me that anyone would think that the cross was an untouched image. Most of the auto pics were retouched and comments were made on the basketball pics. the last ones went through what I described above. But remember being that the settings are neutral I'm just enhancing what was there to begin with.

    Verticals - take #2



    Washington Monument, Washington DC

    Nikon D40
    18-55mm II @ 55mm
    ISO 200, F8, 1/125 sec, Matrix Metering

    Shot with the CP, in NEF and processed with PE 5.

    Ken

    P.S. I got the 55-200 VR - it has only 7 blades. Haven't had too much time to play with it yet. Got worried by the VR noise, thought it was a bad copy, took it back to the store - apparently that's normal...
