A few from me...

Unread postby bossel » Wed Jul 23, 2008 12:15 pm

Actually I don't know if I'd have selected these pics for posting, but these two get the most clicks on my (still tiny) flickr account.

First one is in Cannes, KM5D with Minolta 28-135.
Second one was at Munich Airport, KM5D with Sigma 10-20

The heli-shot was actually not easy, I was using just the center-focus point so I had to put the heli in the center of the frame, focus, and then recompose before it was gone. Only when you try this you suddenly realize how fast these beasts are. :mrgreen:

I regularly use Europecar and they have never provided either the girl, or a car like that! The last one was a Nissan Note and it was handed over by a middle-aged Spanish lady who spoke very good English.

The helicopter would benefit from some livening up of the tones if you make a print from it, but I bet that if you used Auto Levels it would a) look awful b) show up the dust spots you had on the sensor. Have you cleaned it since? They are not very obvious, but they are present, and in different conditions might require retouching.

I remembered a very interesting article from M. Hohner here: http://www.mhohner.de/recompose.php#update20080416 about recomposing. Although it has nothing to do with your shot, but thought that readers of this forum might as well see it.
