Re: landscapes

All of them actually but the dog and the chipmunk photos are less tolerating than the landscape photo because we all are rather used to seeing landscape taking a shade of the present sky conditions pertaining to a certain time of the day like before sunset or after dawn. That's why I'll dismiss the...

Thanks - are you refering to the landscape, the dog or the chipmunk (or all three)?

Re: landscapes

Tom, it's a bit greenish on mine. Not only the last shot. Thanks. They may be verging on going green - I have effectively been adding green (by taking out blue and red - the amount of each varying for each shot). They are only rough corrections, and I may have pushed them a little too far to make i...

Re: landscapes

Ok here is another one from a little later in the day (today). This little guy wanted to let me know he didn't approve of me. He was a Little yellow and had that pink cast as well. hardly fitting a warrior of his stature. I used PS and pulled the red Chanel down a bit. Again this looks very pinky/b...

Re: landscapes

I wonder if the cast you see is because most of what I have posted here recently has been taken in late day sun where the sky is starting to turn pink. I actually have been trying to preserve those colours in my shots where I could easily cool them out and desaturated them a bit to get rid of it? Y...

Re: landscapes

I don't do landscapes very often and would like to get feedback on this. they were just opportunistic shots. and was trying to get the best out of them so I took a lot of frames and a pano. the pano is more so you can see the whole scene. in particular I'd like to know if you would have picked a di...

Re: Circular Aperture

I believe that 'RS' indicates KM lenses with circular aperture. I asked a seller on Ebay if his lens was the circular aperture version, and he asked back: 'how can you tell'? Apart from counting the iris blades, how do you tell. I have only seen photographs of such lenses, but I cannot see 'RS' or ...

Re: What makes a "D" lens ?

With a conventional AF lens, the cameras will derive the focus distance information indirectly, from the lens type and the number of revolutions of the AF shaft, with infinity as the starting point. On a non-D lens, how does it know how many revolutions relate to distance? Is it from the lens ID/da...

Re: A question on Optical Flash trigger

Are you using TTL flash metering or manual? Is there a pre-flash for TTL that is triggering the optical slave before the shutter opens?
