Re: Vapour Trails at Dusk

Thanks chaps. It was very cloudy this evening meaning no more sunset pics so I'll stick with no. 3. I guess "less" is often "more" when it comes to PP.

Re: Vapour Trails at Dusk

Ok, attempt three. I have re. PP'd the first shot. Less PP and cooler looking, more like the second but hopefully less noise. http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm62/Birma1/VapourTrails3.jpg I think I'll only be happy once I go and re-shoot. Lets hope for clear skies tonight :wink:

Re: Vapour Trails at Dusk

Thanks for your comments chaps. The first shot (ISO100) does look cleaner. Perhaps I'll have to start leaving the tripod in the car (until I get th a700 v4 with amazing ISO1600 :D .) I did try the noise reduction in IDC3 but after doing it I could suddently see what all of the "watercolour"...

Re: homeward bound.

Lovely photos, thanks for sharing your commute home - with all of those fabulous photo opps does it add much time on to the daily commute? :) The church is amazing, as the Doc said, I would have thought you were in Eastern Europe with that design of church. I think my favourites are the pumpkins (#1...

A different take from above, about 5 mins earlier, and a cooler looking image.

Tam 17-50/2.8: ISO800, F11, 1/30 @50mm with ND grad

PP'd in IDC3 and then Elements.

Vapour Trails at Dusk

Driving home this evening the sun had set invisibly in the murk and mist, but it was still highlighting an interesting set of vapour trails left in the sky - it sure looks busy up there. I had the camera in the car and so I tried a few shots, and this one seemed to work best. Tam 17-50/2.8: ISO100, ...

Re: Lighthouses

Lovely Lighthouse photo Sonolta. Great with all of the sailing craft around the harbour. Those seats are high up! Multiple types of photo opportunity from one venue (and perhaps seat?) - brilliant.

Re: 4th Century Chuch

More interesting shots Doc, thanks for posting. Think of the worshippers feet that have passed over that basalt floor over the hundreds and hundreds of years. The shots look good even at 1600.

A belated Happy Birthday to Robbie. What a great looking plane! What was it like to take pictures from an open cockpit? I bet SSS came in handy.

Re: A few older ones

Lovely shots Bossel. I love the colours of #1, but the narrow street shot is my favourite. It is a pity the end of the jelly fish tentacles are cut off although I guess they can be very long and so you may not have had a choice - was this in an aquarium?

Oh no! Two Doc's? :D I guess it will have to be Doc H and Doc K from now on :wink:

Re: Trying some HDR

I've never tried HDR so thanks for the link, I'll have to give it a go. I like the colours in the sky. HDR images I've seen in magazines seem to really "pop" and I wonder if yours is a bit too subtle? This could of course be a good thing as it's probably easy to make the scene look un-natr...

Re: cafe

Really great Mike. The blue + white looks fab.

Obviously a picture from a few years ago as we don't seem to get blue skies in the UK any more :wink:

Re: 4th Century Chuch

Interesting picture Doc. Looks like 1700 years of history just in the wall detail. Any more pics of the interior/exterior?
