    Happy new year!

    Yes, most fireworks in Holland are private fireworks. It's always hard to capture. Last year I leaned out of the attic window and held me camera still by leaning it against the window. This time I stood in my backyard with my camera on a tripod. Because there was so many fireworks around I was...

    At which point do I need to clean my sensor?

    I already did that. But since there's not really that much light this time of year I probably won't go over f/8. So I'll wait a while before I unwrap a swab and open the E2 bottle. Thanks!

    At which point do I need to clean my sensor?

    Thanks for the replies! That's what I was hoping for. I don't really go over f/8 so I'll wait with my first sensor cleaning job until the dust gets visible at lower f numbers...

    Happy new year!

    Last year was my first attempt at shooting fireworks with a Fuji S9500. This year I wanted better results. Unofrtunately though I don't think the outcome was better. I had a short time to take pictures as the fog became very dense, making it impossible to see any fireworks at 50 metres away. Oh...

    At which point do I need to clean my sensor?

    Hi all, Haven't been here for a while, but I have a question: Recently I've been reading up on cleaning sensors (I know it's not really the sensor which is cleaned). I bought a sensor swab and some Eclipse E2 last week. Now I wonder at which stage I should clean the sensor. I have my camera...

    Really like the second one, it seems like my eyes can't be destracted, I'm just pulled towards the centre with all those lines...

    This must be the easiest kind of pictures to make, just start clicking away and you'll always end up with something colorful. A least one good thing of this time of year... :mrgreen: 1. 2. 3. 4.

    Birds in my backyard

    The last couple of weeks more and more bird visit our backyard, which gives a nice opportunity to take some pictures. It is not that easy though, these birds are very fast, they quickly get something to eat and don't sit still to pose. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.

    Man do I hate those powerlines in my pictures all the time. Here where I live it's either powerlines or windmills which tend to get in the background. So for once I decided to use those powerlines and windmills as a subject. I did a small experiment with selective coloring in the third picture...

    Printing to Epson C64 from Photoshop

    Hi all, Recently I've tried printing some pictures on my home Epson C64 with some (cheap) photo-paper. Some results are nice, others give huge differences in color. I know I should calibrate my monitor somehow and I've used Adobe Gamma for that purpose. But when not looking into this too...
