My photo had a lot of views but only one vote! ( may07photo05 )
*fights to hold back tears*
(just kidding man)
It's a fun contest; seeing which photos people choose to look at in full size, and which they vote for. Lots of good submissions everyone!
Thanks people! the light was VERY weak that day.
I can't remember what the settings on the camera were . . . I had it on auto! *shame*
In the future I will play more with the aperture and speed (possibly at the expense of capturing the subject at the exact moment I want to, but . . . you can't...
Please let me know if you prefer the full shot
or the close up
I like the full shot because the snowy mountains look quite nice, and I like the close shot because the light is cool and the little water drops 'dancing' under the Heron.
Hey thanks you guys! right on.
Getting the hang of focussing for effect has been a trial; I'm always working with subjects that move constantly.
OK, given your advice . ... how about this instead
a different shot of #1, just the background
and a different shot of the foreground duck alone...
Hey folks, haven't been around in a while, been putting to use all the good advice I got here last year.
This is two photos of the same scene, but with different focus. Which is better? I haven't cropped them, or done any adjustments to the levels either, so suggestions in that regard would...
Ok then! I've turned that on now. Thanks for all your help!
I've just made a post on my blog with three new scans if anyone is interested
Ah, thank you kind sir! *bats eyelashes*
I got the not $400 scanner, I got a $700 dedicated film scanner and it is my new baby!
Here's a shot that I didn't even bother scanning from the print . . . I need to learn more and play more (the first scan came in very very green) but this is an...
Well it IS just a regular flatbed scanner.
It looks like I can get a good film scanner for $400, so I'll be picking one up on my way home today.
Results will be posted this weekend! Pixel by pixel analysis. haha
I thought you couldn't scan film because the colour information is added at the print?
I have been asking for a long time if I should switch to slide film for the kind of photography I do; supposedly able to capture more information, making for a richer and more detailed image than colour...
Ah, that is very helpful to know! Thank you. My lens is 75-300mm and I often use it at full zoom
I've suspected for a while that with more experience the 'rhythm' of the numbers will become second nature; they are just proportions of each other, or inverse ratios (exposure / aperature and such...
Well, it's not very glamourous standing out there up to your knees in freezing cold ocean trying to get these shots . .. then the stupid thing flies away just as you get close enough! (which is what happened this time, I was trying to circle around but buddy got skittish so I snapped what I...
hello! This photo as taken on a cloudy day in low light . . . I like the 'action' feel of it and the windblown feathers.
I cropped the scan in closely, so the image may appear grainy (I do have a smaller size of the exact same thing here . . ...
