Here's some photos I took at Highover Wildlife Sanctuary(South Africa) a while ago
Some lovely shots however, they seem a little underexposed and have a blue hue about them? Do you know the settings you used when taking these and what type of film did you use?
I have to agree with Melanie - lovely shots, but technically something is not right -- I agree more info please
(are these film or digital shots?)
Also - well done with that last shot - you must have had to get close to have got that!
These remind me of last summer, I spent most of it around Africa, including South Africa.
Hi, and welcome to the forum!
As others have said, nice pics, but they seem a bit hazy. Did you do any post processing on them? They may just need a 'levels' adjustment to get rid of that.
I noticed that blue tint, how do you recommend getting rid of it?
At that time I was using a Canon Powershot S3 IS and learning how to shoot on the manual mode.
They are digital shots That deer was a bit tamer than the others
Thanks A bit, I used the windows image resizer
hmm do you have any software on the computer for editing shots? Something like GIMP or photoshop elements?
*shout up if you have elements - I know how to use that!*
but for general advice - look for the "levels" feature in your editing software and get it to auto set the levels
Thanks I'm downloading Gimp Portable now
Edit: Darn slow connection states that it will take a hour to download
like Antarctican said all it needed was a change in the levels - this is what elements did - I just ran auto levels and nothing else
also something that I find especially usefull (very much so with furry and feathery things) is the unsharpen mask - which does exactly the opposite of what you think it does by name. Most digital shots need a bit of additional sharpening in the computer and when you resize a shot its also good to add some more sharpening to compensate for the blurr of reducing the size
some good info
It sure does make a difference indeed Thanks for the good advice
Thats ok - show us what you come up with
*its also usefull to note down the settings you used - some adjust things that you can't see unless you really look for it - others there are some "optimal" working areas*
I wonder if it was your WB setting..
