    HDR Altima - same car, new photo!

    I'm up early for work and decided to try an HDR with my car. I'm not dissatisfied with the HDR necessarily, but I think I should have spent a few more minutes on the angle, and if I was serious about it I should have taken the stuff out of the backseat. Next time.

    Car photos - edit at will...

    Color management retard needs help, please!

    Hello, and thanks in advance for any insight you may have on color management. Currently I own a Sony Vaio laptop and a Kodak ESP 7 printer. I would like to print photographs with color that closely matches what I see on my display. I am less interested in graphics and line art, however I...

    Canon 10D Lens advice appreciated!

    Thanks for any advice, everyone. I'm pretty "raw" with this stuff (groan). I have a Canon 10D I recently bought from a friend, my first DSLR. All I have for it is an EF 35-70 3.5-4.5. I do not have an off-camera flash but I do have a friend that will let me borrow strobes and gear from...

    Tone Mapping - before and after

    Here is another attempt at using Photomatrix to use tone mapping with a raw file that's been converted with 5 different exposure settings (no other adjustments made beforehand). The before pic is the middle exposure I used, I adjusted the exposures to -2,-1,+1,+2 using bridge and camera raw...

    HDR - third attempt - using "fake" method

    Here is my third image I've worked on thinking "HDR", although for this one I did not use 3 separately exposed raw files (yes I worked with raw for my first two), instead I used one raw file processed 3 times into tiff files with different "exposure" settings that I had adjusted in camera raw...

    HDR - second attempt - guidance still needed

    This time around I tried out the photoshop:automate:hdr feature. I also spent more time messing around with contrast and shadows etc. I'm still not happy with the results. I used 6 exposures, raw files, converted to 8 bit and tried to understand tone mapping, increased contrast in...

    HDR - first attempt - guidance needed

    Man I love seeing an awesome HDR I tried my first one. While I can easily see it lacks serious awesomeness, I wasn't too disappointed with my first shot. However, as always, I appreciate it when you point out the flaws!

    New York Panorama

    Yesterday on my rooftop in Coney Island, I decided to try my very first panorama. Any critique welcome! I didn't look up any tips before hand (although I have read the forum article a long time ago, I did this on a whim) so there really wasn't any planning. Also I didn't really do much more...

    digital processing time, workflow

    The fashion photographer I work for has his entire shoot for a day online and ready for review, editing or purchase by his clients before they can even leave the studio. The jobs are also backed up the first and second time before the end of the day. His workflow seems to impress his clients...

    realistic price for a canon 40D

    I see prices between $1100 & $1200 on Amazon or B&H for new bodies, then I see prices around $900 for "like new" bodies on ebay or craigslist, but places like this give you prices under $600: that's too good to be true, right?
