glass is really cool, not sure if you meant it but the light looks like it's spilling either in or out of it. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Nice.
post #2343 of 4192
Heading to Spain in a couple weeks and bought a wide-angle lens for that purpose (12-24 F/4 Nikkor) but now I'm looking for a REALLY light weight tripod that is super portable. I tried out a tripod that had legs made of tent poles and it definitely worked but had massive vibration issues carrying my body and lens.

Any recommendations?

I also don't want to spend bank on a carbon fiber super-bad tripod. Something cheap and easy.

I have a Feisol tripod. It's carbon so it's light but still stable. Was quite affordable.
I have one of the small ones that fit into carry on luggage if you remove the ball head.

Haha, well I don't know. I think it's supposed to look like anyway you want it. Whichever works smile.gif

Took a walk today trying to familiarize myself with a new camera.

Straight Out Of Camera with some slight cropping:

I like how the red of this door was captured - pretty true to life. Again, SOOC but with a little more cropping:

A couple more (Click to show)

These are all SOOC:

Critique/suggestions welcome.

The last one would look great cropped right up to the tree line, i.e. where the stairs end.

How did you make the B/W's? More contrast might make them a bit stronger.

They were all SOOC, so using the camera's B&W setting. Some are using B&W + a colour filter, also in-camera. When looking through them I tried to bump the contrast on many of the B&Ws, but in then end I settled for the SOOC look. I suspect my monitor is too dark, so they may look too washed out on a properly calibrated screen.

Your results look better to me than what I got from a quick 'Shadow' increase in Picasa shog[1].gif

Thanks for playing around with them smile.gif

You're welcome smile.gif. I see what you mean. The levels looked good, I just adjusted the curves in PS to darken the dark areas and lighten the light ones.
